Description
I was having a twang on my acoustic guitar since I finally put some new strings on it and out popped this song, though the lyrics for some reason really had me stumped for a good while. It's a nice summery song that should get people bouncing up and down.... I hope so anyway. First time I've used my acoustic for recording for ages.

Lyrics
It’s Summer

In the mornin’ light, the early bird take flight with a shimmer,
Through the misty haze. ripples in the stream shine and glimmer,
Blossoms on the trees, nodding in the breeze,
Beckon to the bees, “Hey! Come and visit me.”
Cause it’s summer, Oh it’s summer.

Laughter fills the air, children play without a care, in the sunlight,
People laze outside in the warming sunny rays, ‘cause it feels right.
Butterflies go by, so pleasin’ to the eye,
Dancin’ on the air underneath the blue, blue sky,
‘Cause it’s summer, yes it’s summer

Yes it’s summer, when everything gro-ows and grows,
It’s summer when the Earth shows off all, all her brand new clothes

Summer, summer, summer
Summer, summer, summer.
Blossoms on the trees, nodding in the breeze,
Beckon to the bees, “Hey! Come and visit me.”
Cause it’s summer, Wo-o-o-oh it’s summer.

‘S time for lyin by the sea, children callin’ out with glee, ‘cause they’re swimmin’
Seagulls call above, people’s thoughts turn to love; men and women,
Lyin on the sand, tryin’ to get a tan,
Kids all think it’s grand makin’ castles in the sand,
‘Cause it’s summer, oh-o, yea, yea, it’s summer,
Everybody’s glad because it’s summer
Summer, Oh summer, summer.

Maurice Vizard

Nothing like
a new set of strings for inspiration! Great to hear you playing Maurice. Nice summery feel to this one - unlike the weather in the south east! You should use your guitar more...

Thanks Peter
Yes it's summery as you said and it might be the only summer we get now LOL, but you're getting it worse than us so far... I could do with some rain for my garden instead of this wind, cheers M

Hi Feter..
Yes I almost did put a slide guitar in there, but went for the 'High Summer' violins in the background instead. Glad you approve though, thanks a lot, many regards M

Man Peter got that right
about a new set of strings.

Nice track Maurice, Makes me want to hear to the beach, except the closest real beach is about 1200 miles away. Not matter, great lyrics and good guitar playing my friend.

Would have liked a little more bass in the mix, but it doesn't take away from the song. Nice job on the vocal too.

Thanks for sharing this one Maurice.

Hi Ed..
I used to live by the sea and it's only about 20 miles away now, but then again, we are an island over here. I can't imagine some people who never see the sea in their lives though. Thank you for your nice compliments my friend.... I've always been highly strung or so they say LOL. I kept the bass a bit low 'cause bass isn't really my Forte', but I agree it should be louder....only if it was spot on though, cheers M

The Beach Boys...
...have nothing on you, Maurice. Such a pleasant little calypso-kind-of number. Your instrumentation, vocals, and the charming lyrics are just perfect to lift up one's spirits. What a great recording...!!! Love the vocal fade, too.
Peace.

I would
have thought you'd be in the sunshine at this time of year Vic, but never mind, I've sent you some in the song. It's sunny here but it's practically blowing a cold gale coming from the east, so I should get windburn if I don't get a tan. Thanks for dropping by, cheers M

We need cameras
I wish I had a camera for this comment because you'd see me bouncing along in my chair as I type this listening to your happy, happy song. I really love this, Maurice and think it's one of your finest pieces of writing. I agree that it could use more of a bottom end (and I like your bassline) but the overall song is a knockout. Like that big emphatic strum at the end!

You've made my day with those lovely comments; I'm so pleased that it had you bouncing along too. So thank you very much for listening. The emphatic end is about the first time I've done that, as I'm usually a fader LOL, all the best, M

Moviz said 3286 days ago (May 28th, 2008)
I usually
do play it Bob, but just to compose songs. The strings were dead, so I finally changed them and while I've played in a minor way on other songs, the guitar has been very minimal as I'm no guitarist as I've said many times. This is the first time it;s been the main instrument and so prominent. Glad you liked it though Bob and thanks for your comment, much appreciated, cheers M

Looks like a
swoon of summer songs hitting the decks here! I really think that changing strings and getting that big and bright sound totally works to make this one shine.
Moviz said 3285 days ago (May 28th, 2008)
Thanks John
for taking the time to listen.... yes there very well may be a 'swoon' (is that the word for it ? LOL) of summer songs in the offing now. As long as they only swoon after they've listened my song, I'll be pleased LOL, Thanks again, M

But not being the best bassist in the world I felt a bit reticent about bringing it up in the mix; though I have gone back to it in GB and raised the drum and the bass quite a bit and it sounds better. Glad you like it though and I thank you for calling to listen and for the nice comment, cheers M
