Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I Got my red dress on tonight
Dancin' in the dark in the pale moonlight
Got my hair Up real big beauty queen style
Highheels off, i'm feeling alive

Oh, my god, i feel it in the air
Telephone wires above all sizzlin' like a snare
Honey i'm on fire i feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh

I'm feelin' electric tonight
Cruising down the coast goin' by 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
Oh if i go, i'll be happy tonight

Oh, my god, i feel it in the air
Telephone wires above all sizzlin' like a snare
Honey i'm on fire i feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-s-saummertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh

I think i'll love you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the morning skies
Late is better than never
Even if i'm gone i'm gonna drive, drive

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh

Kiss me hard before you go
Summer time sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby you're the best

I've got that summertime, summertime sadness
S-s-s-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh
