The ground is covered with a blanket of snow,
Oh, how I wish that blanket would go!
The end of March means the end is near
How long do I have to wait until it's finally here?
We're ready for the long awaited end
The time when our hibernating hearts will mend
It'll be the time when the sun will melt the snow
And outdoors, people will begin to show
Out of hibernations they all appear,
All excited for summer is almost here
They call their work spring cleaning and what not
They're just using their energy, since they've got a lot
The first warm day, the ladies get a tan
While the sun burns every trying man
And by night everyone is ready for bed
All their energy burnt from the day they led
With each day the temperature gets warmer
And people know summer is around the corner
They clean and they plant, prepare and cook
So that their house has that summertime look
June 21st is the day they've all been waiting for
It's officially summer when they open their door
Just a few more days until school will be out
Students can't wait until they can do without
On the last day, they wait for the final bell to ring
Full of excitement over what summer will bring
They tell their friends and teachers good bye
Saying they'd miss them even if it's a lie
For home they all happily run
What's first for the summer's fun?
There's warmth and excitement in the air
And soft cool breezes whipping through hair
Families go on vacation to places like the beach
It's more of an experience then school could teach
Filled with memories of fun in the sun
That will remain when summers done
Couples spend time together and explore
Walking along the sandy beach shore
Kissing each other watching the sun set
Reminiscing about the day they met
Kids run around with their friends and play
From early morning until the end of day
Making games, stories and all things pretend
They will play until the summers end
Grandparents sit back and enjoy
The fun over every girl and boy
Entertaining their kids and every other
But always find time for one another
In summer we always find something fun to do
Whether we're single or it's more than just you
Creating happy memories that will last forever
Memories to keep us smiling through whatever
But summer will come and summer will go
In the end, winter will always show
And people will hibernate away
Until the next sunny day
