Well, I’m gonna raise a fuss, I’m gonna raise a holler
About workin’ all summer just to try to earn a dollar
Yeah I call my baby and I try to get a date
And My boss…
Sometimes I wonder what I’m a-gonna do
But there ain’t no cure for the summertime blues
Well, my momma told me, “you gotta earn some money”

If you want to use the car to go ridin’ next Sunday
Well, I didn’t go to work, told my boss I was sick
“Well, you can’t…
Are you gonna work late?

Sometimes I wonder what I’m gonna do
‘Cause there ain’t no cure for the summertime blues
Keep going
More?
More

Gonna take two weeks, I’m gonna have a fine vacation
Gonna take my problems to the United Nations
Well, I called my congressman and he said “whoa, yeah!”
You can’t work?

Sometimes I wonder what I’m a gonna do
There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues
Ahhhhhhhhh-owww
Yeah
Everyone
Your got help
Come on
Aaahhhhh-owwwww
