We've been waiting for the first day of summer (since the first day of fall)

Listen here:

Well we’re jumping off the dock

We’re going for a swim

We’re letting our kites rise up in the wind


We’re stepping outside

We’re headed out the door

We’re dressing in nothing but t-shirts and shorts


It’s looking good it’s looking all right

You know what I’m talking about ya’ll

We’ve been waiting for the first day of summer

Since the first day of fall


Well this winter was way too cold for anyone to take

But now the leaves are green

We're gonna drive down to the lake


I’m gonna start me a fire

Cook up some burgers and some dogs

Watch the fireflies from my seat on a log


It’s feeling warm it’s feeling just right

You know we’re gonna have us a ball

We’ve been waiting for the first day of summer

Since the first day of fall


We’ve been waiting for the first day summer since the fall brought a chill to the land

We’ve been waiting for the first day summer since we all started losing our tans

We’ve been waiting for the first day summer since I don't even know when

But when the ice starts melting I’m a brand new man

I think some of you people understand


It’s looking good it’s looking all right and you know what I’m talking about ya’ll

We’ve been waiting for the first day of summer

Since the first day of fall


The first day of summer

Since the first day of fall


The first day of summer

Since the first day of fall
