So DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince have held for too long the unopposed title of 'most played summer rap track' - here is my challenge to the crown.

lyrics

1. Finished work Friday, and here’s the plan
Heading to the toon, every woman and man
To a fine wine bar, or somewhere sleazy
A bad boy like Pete Beat’s easy
I drink beer, and also I drink wine
And also I drink cocktails, two at a time
And if you wanna be me you can do what I did
And if you divven’t kna, now ya kna, kid

Chorus: Long hot summer nights
Drinkin’ in the soft twilight

2. Next day a barbeque at Stu’s, who knows you
The smell from the cooking takes us all the way back to
Long past summers when we had ne cares
Sipping on whisky in wor teenage years
But now I’ve earned this beer, and have ne fear
It’ll fill us to the brim with summer cheer
And if you wanna be me you can do what I did
And if you divven’t kna, now ya kna, kid

Chorus.

3. Sat in a field and we’re watching a a band
Or chilling on the beach and enjoying the sand
The beer gardens beckon, what do you reckon?
Meet us there, and some beers, we’ll wreck ‘em
If anything can please me, these things can
Pete Beat is only human
And if you wanna be me you can do what I did
And if you divven’t kna, now ya kna, kid

Chorus.

It holds a dream in my heart, for you, aye for you, my love
It holds a dream in my heart, for you, aye for you, my love

4. In late August and the autumn’s near
Summer ends too fast, every year
But tonight it’s still, I think we will stop and chill
Drink our fill of pils
And the smell of the perfect gloaming
Makes me hark for a life I never spent roaming
And if you wanna be me you can do what I did
And if you divven’t kna, now ya kna, kid
