Summer Nights (song): A popular song from the musical Grease. Written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, its best-known version was recorded by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John

Summer loving had me a blast
Summer loving happened so fast
I met a girl crazy for me
Met a boy cute as can be
Summer days drifting away to oh
Oh the summer nights
You can see where I’m going with this.
Summer, I like to think you would have been crazy for me.
Daddy can be the cute boy.
Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far?
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car?
Yep, nearly 20 weeks.
Mummy was going to have to buy a new car for her maternity leave with you.
She swam by me she got a cramp
He ran by me got my suit damp
I saved her life she nearly drowned
He showed off splashing around
Summer sun something’s begun but oh
Oh the summer nights
You gave me cramps, you got my clothes damp!
But I saved your life.
And you showed off, splashing around on your early scans.
Tell me more, tell me more
Was it love at first sight?
Tell me more, tell me more
Did she put up a fight?
Yes it was.
Yes you did, my darling.
Took her bowling in the arcade
We went strolling, drank lemonade
We made out under the dock
We stayed out till 10 o’clock
Summer fling don’t mean a thing but oh
Oh the summer nights
We didn’t go bowling, we went camping! And mummy drank lots of lemonade, pretending it was gin.
Staying out til 10pm was tricky with you making me feel so tired. But it meant everything.
Tell me more, tell me more
But you don’t gotta brag
Tell me more, tell me more
Cause he sounds like a drag
Want to know more? Read this whole blog.
Though I dragged her about, she wasn’t a drag, far from it.
He got friendly holding my hand
She got friendly down in the sand
He was sweet just turned eighteen
Well she was good, know what I mean
Summer heat boy and girl meet but oh
Oh the summer nights
She had just turned 18 weeks when the real trouble began. Oh those painful nights with you, Summer.
But you were a good girl.
Tell me more, tell me more
How much dough did he spend?
Tell me more, tell me more
Could she get me a friend?
Daddy bought us four dresses and some trousers. He spent enough to qualify for a free maternity photo shoot. We’ll probably give it to some friends.
It turned colder that’s where it ends
So I told her we’d still be friends
Then we made our true love vow
Wonder what she’s doing now
Your name is Summer, but it feels cold like winter. I will love you always. I wonder about you every day.
Summer dreams ripped at the seams but
Oh those summer nights
Sadly, no explanation required.
