SUMMERTIME BLUES

Original Music & Lyrics by Eddie Cochran

Used with permission

 

Hey I'm gonna raise a fuss, I'm gonna raise a holler
About a workin' all summer just to try to earn a dollar
Every time I call my baby, and ask to get a date
My boss says, "No dice son, you didn't work late"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
There ain't no cure for the summertime blues

 

Well my mom and pop told me, "Son you gotta make some money"
If you want to use the car to go ridin' next Sunday
Well I didn't go to work, told the boss my was sick
"He said can't use the car 'cause you didn't work a lick"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

 

I'm gonna take two weeks, gonna have a fine vacation
I'm gonna take my problem to the United Nations
Well I called my congressman and he said "Whoa!"
"I'd like to help you son but you're too young to vote"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

I said there ain't no cure for the summer time blues

Ain't no cure for the summer time blues

I said there ain't no cure for the summer time blues

 There ain't no cure
