Bette Midler Summer ( The First Time ) Lyrics

Last updated: 12/19/2006 10:00:00 AM

The original Bobby Goldsboro version as I remember it was;

'Twas a hot afternoon
The last day of June
And the sun was a demon
The clouds were afraid
One-ten in the shade
And the pavements were steamin'

I told Billy Ray
In his red Chevrolet
Needed time for some thinking
She was just walking by
When I looked in here eye
And I swore it was winkin'

She was thirty-one
I was seventeen
I knew nothin' 'bout love
She knew everything
But I sat down beside her on a front porch swing
And wondered what the coming night would bring

The sun closed her eyes
As it climbed in the sky
And it started to swelter
The sweat trickled down
The front of her gown
And I thought it would melt her

She threw back her hair
Like I wasn't there
She sipped on a Julep
Her shoulders were bare
And I tried not to stare
When I looked at her two lips

Then she looked at me
I heard her softly say
I know you're young
And don't know what to do or say
But stay with me until the sun has gone away
And I will chase the boy in you away

And then she smiled
And we talked for a while
Then we walked for a mile to the sea
We sat on the sand
And a boy took her hand
But I saw the sunrise as a man

Ten years have gone by
Since I looked in her eye
But the memory lingers
I go back in my mind
To the very first time
And feel the touch of her fingers

'Twas a hot afternoon
The last day of June
And the sun was a demon
The clouds were afraid
One-ten in the shade
And the pavements were steaming......and fades

Summer ( The First Time ) Lyric
The original Bobby Goldsboro version

Was a hot afternoon
The last day of June
And the sun was a demon
The clouds were afraid
One-ten in the shade
And the pavement was steamin'

I told Billy Ray
In his red Chevrolet
I Needed time for some thinking
I was just walking by
When I looked in her eye
And I swore it was winkin'

She was thirty-one
and I was seventeen

She knew everything
But I sat down beside her on a front porch swing
And wondered what the coming night would bring

The sun closed her eyes
As it climbed in the sky
And it started to swelter
The sweat trickled down
The front of her gown
And I thought it would melt her

She threw back her hair
Like I wasn't there
She sipped on a Julep

And I tried not to stare
When I looked at her two lips

And feel the touch of her fingers

Was a hot afternoon
The last day of June
And the sun was a demon
The clouds were afraid
One-ten in the shade
And the pavement was steaming......and fades
