The Lyrics

Recently, I asked the boys of Madness if they were having a nice summer. "Am I 'aving a nice summer, guvner? Bollocks! I'll tell you about bleedin' summer, guvner............" Youtube of original song here

Naughty boys in swimming pools performing bombs against the rules
Builders with their noisy tools
renovating local schools
Vinyl seats inside my car
I sit down with bare legs - ARGH!
Trying to remember when to re-apply sunscreen again

oh aint summer sad?
aint nuffing that is 'arf as bad
Getting effin' hot
I lie around and sweat a lot
oh aint summer bad?
reminds me of me poor granddad
sittin' by the fan
and giving attitude Gran

...local kids just irritate
Summer means they stay up late
Must be funny, I suppose
spraying people wif a hose
Insect bites behind my knees
"One more tube of ointment please"
Kitchen gets attacked by ants
Sand gets in my underpants

oh aint summer bad?
The neighbour's wife parades unclad
She looks like Bardot
...does now (not forty years ago)
Summer makes me mad
Are those white things my legs?...egad!
Bought some frozen (oops!)
peas which have now become

great, there's a "Three's Company"
marathon on Pay TV
and the other channel's got
"Roseanne" in a primetime slot
and for each half-naked Jane
there are three half-naked Waynes
and a hundred more semi
-naked girls who shouldn't be

Summer makes me
Me back's stuck to the vinyl couch
I don't sleep a wink
and even all my drinks 'ave drinks
Everyone's undressed
except Jehovah's witnesses
Even now those dudes
still doorknock in their din

sandy trousers...
sandy blouses...
sandy showers...

sandy towels...
sandy bowels...
sandy fowls...

sandy kitchens...
sandy britches...

sandy sandals...
sandy candles...
sandy every-effin'-thing, guvner...

Larf? I nearly bought me own fags! If only I could give this a 10 10 10. You'll have to make make do with a 555. Excellent wordplay. Spot on. Nice one, mate!

Even with all of the bad things about summer, at least there's always one good thing to look upon... It's not snowing!
alvin - November 22, 2007 - Report this comment
especially liked the bardot line

Love, love, loved this Stu...(and you've given me an idea for my entry); especially enjoyed your attempt at Cockney! I do, however, need to inform you that...
1) English summers are rarely hot (we didn't even bother with one this year)
2) sand ion beaches here is as rare as mosquito testicles
...which leads me to deduce that Suggs and co. must have gone to Australia for their which case, "stop whingeing, ya poms!" ;-) 555+

Loved the Bardot bit and the Jehovah's witnesses and the sand all over at the end :-) Bravo, Stu! 555

You've captured the funny frustrations of the sunny season, very well

Bardot WAS the absolute cheap-slut-sex-poodle of her day, wasn't she? Also love the hundred half-naked babes that SHOULDN'T be (naked)..truer words never spoken, Stu. This is much better than the OS, which I'd never heard before your link , and hope to never again lol.

Thanks Kark - you've got a bit of yer own cockney happening there, me ole china

thanks Phil - I knew you Poms would know the OS :-)

thanks Matthias and alvin

thanks Kristof - the idea wouldn't be a hate-winter thing would it? - I had the same idea;-)...and yes I did spend a summer in London once and I froze my nuts off - my intro originally said "whilst on their Australian tour" but a few of the lines didn't work - of course now I think about it, it should have been "whilst spending a year downunder" - d'oh

thanks Rick - did you get that OS over there in the US? - it was a number one in the UK and Oz in 1982 I think

thanks AFW :-)

thanks Dee - I thought she was perfect when I was a kid - still do - and I'm sure the OS would grow on you - I saw Madness in concert once and they were fantastic - the whole venue was like a moshpit

Oi! 555

Including "Three's Company" and "Rosanne" seemed kinda random for me. I know what you were getting at with it, and I found it funny, but it was kind of an odd inclusion. Anyways, I loved the Jehovah's Witness line, and of course "Sandywiches", and I can really relate to the ants. I think Ohioians have them worse than every other place on Earth.

(Dec 2.0) Blimey, you're quite good at this parody thing, gov'ner! Loved the ending - that's I never go to the effin' beach.
Arwen - December 11, 2007 - Report this comment! I think you pretty much nailed every annoying thing there is about summer, Stu. I have always LOVED summer...and yet, reading this parody...I somehow hate it now, too.

DEC- This parody is hot. Loved the inclusion of "sandywiches". Good work, Stu.
Kristof Robertson - December 12, 2007 - Report this comment
(DEC 2.5) See more to add except sand-tastic.

(DEC2) I, um, am a bit speechless at the OS. . .I, um, loved it, very original song to begin with. That said--you did very well on the parody, your rhyming was just wow. . .I guess your season was "Summer"
Jeff Reuben - December 13, 2007 - Report this comment
Ditto on the OS, but hilarious song. The visual of your bare legs was disturbing, but the sandywiches line made up for it :)
