Description
Whiled away my time doing this song, while I've been layer low with shingles. Strange thing is that my voice is the clearest it's been in ages.... must get shingles again (I don't think. Well the song speaks for itself regarding my thoughts and wishes at the moment.... really cold here in UK, so can't wait for the summer. Hope you like this 'feel-good' song, (chords included.) M

Lyrics
Lovely Summertime.
G
Just can’t wait ‘till the summer comes,
I’ve been sat here doin’ my sums,
..................................................Em/Em7
Countin’ the days till the sun is high,
D7
Winter’s gone and to me it’s clear,
.........................................................G/G7
Soon the smells of summer will be here.

Won’t be long till the Summer’s here,
Fields all green and the skies all clear,
Longer days and lovely Starlit nights,
Nothin’ can beat the Summertime,
Sittin’ outside in the bright Sunshine,

Chorus.
C......................Am........Cma7..Am
Summer is the time for having fun,
C......................Am........Cma7..Am
Spending many hours in the sun,
G.......................G7
Lovely Summertime.
C......................Am........Cma7..Am
Everythin’ blooms in the Summertime,
C......................Am........Cma7..Am
Wonderful colours and smells devine,
G.......................D7
Lovely Summertime.

Instrumental and chorus.

Strollin’ through fields of lovely flowers,
Or Sittin’ in the Park, chattin’ for hours,
Soakin’ up the warmth of the Summer air.
Laughter of the kids on the carousels,
People on the beach, just bein’ themselves.
Rpt. Chorus.

Gettin’ tired of twiddlin’ my thumbs,
Just can’t wait till the Summer comes,
Lots to do when it’s finally here,
Like layin’ in a hammock in the shade,
With a glass of wine, I’ll really have it made.
Rpt Chorus.

Maurice Vizard, April 2012.

Very nice!
Thats what we need, a bit of sunshine here in the UK and after hearing this the lyrics make me feel like summer is already here.
A lovely song and very much enjoyed Maurice.

I agree,
although we in the north west have had some sun in between the rain, it's been unseasonably cold hence the saying 'Ne'er cast a clout till May is out' LOL.... I just HAD to try making my own summer LOL... Thanks Bob, very pleased you came along, regards M

Hi Sammy
Yes, as I said to Bob above it's still long sleeve weather here and though summer's round the corner, we still might not get a lot of Sun judging by summers of the past few years... regarding the song; it's all in the mind LOL, thanks for the listen, regards M

A jaunty tune which rolls along beautifully. Relaxed vocal. Nice full mix. Very easy on the ears. Much enjoyed! (Hope the shingles are better - they hurt!)

eternal summer
You know, it feels like it's always summer where you are. Your music is just so upbeat.

Nice tune. Watch out for the EQ. It feels like the vocals have been hyped a bit much.

Well Vic
that's a compliment I'll welcome, with a lot of appreciation and thanks. Yes the EQ is a thing I'm trying to come to grips with, though playing this back from this site it sounds more trebly than from GB or my I-Tunes; wondered if it's anything to do with the new server, regards M

I know what you mean Chris
it does have that sort of easy hot summer 60's feel about the chorus and the yodel bit came with quite a lot of concentration LOL..... No, I won't want or rely on the shingles when I want a clear voice, I'll swig my special concoction made from everything hot; onions, peppers, ginger and horseradish, steeped in cider vinegar; guaranteed to kill any bugs and a natural anti-biotic, cheers M

The bouncy tempo and bright major chords work well to express the emotions in the lyric. May has been a little cold and rainy so far, so I hear you. Shingles suck, had'em as a kid. Get better soon.

Your music plays very well with the sunny atmosphere here in the south of France. I hope your weather back in Blighty warms up soon! Either way, your tune will bring sunshine into anyone's life who hears it.

Your voice sounds great here Maurice! I can picture you singing at an open air bar in the warm light of Key West as patrons soak in the rays and your music.

Cheers,
Doug

This almost has a zydeco feeling to it with the instruments you've chosen for rhythm section. I like it a lot (as usual). Seems like I saw tha shingles are actually a pox revisited from when you had it earlier? And that eveyone who has had these has potential shingles.... Ouch but yeah it helped your voice huh?
Moviz said 1861 days ago (May 18th, 2012)
Well Freddy
I did joke with somebody that 'the shingles' made me sound so good that they must have been my backing group LOL.... seriously though, they are bad and now they've weakened me and my backs gone Sheesh! Thanks a lot for calling in on the song though; really pleased you liked this
