Summer Time Lyrics - Sublime

Review The Song (8)



Summertime and the livin's easy
Bradley's on the microphone with Ras-MG
All the people in the dance will agree that
we're well qualified to
represent
the LBC
(me)
Me and Louie we're gunna run to the party and dance till the rhythm it
gets
harder

Ba da ba bye bye
Ba da ba bye bye

Me and my girl we got this relationship
I love her so bad, but she tr(e)ats me like shhh
(On lockdown) like a penitentiary
She spreads her lovin all over
sponsored links
and when she gets home
there's none left for me

Summertime and the livin's easy
Bradley's on the microphone with Ras-MG
All the people in the dance will agree that we're well qualified to
represent
the LBC
(me)
Me and Louie we're gunna run to the party
and dance till the rhythm it gets
harder

Ba da ba bye bye
Ba da ba bye bye
Ba da ba bye bye
ba da ba bye bye

So take this veil from off my eyes
My burning sun will some day rise
And what am I gunna be doin for a while
said I'm gunna play with myself
Show them now we've come off the shelf
(so what)
Summertime and the livin easy
Bradley's on the microphone with Ras-MG
All the people in the dance will agree that we're well qualified to
represent
the LBC
(me)
Me and Louie run to the party
and dance till the rhythm it
gets
harder

Evil ive come to tell you that she's evil
most definitely
Evil, honry scandalous and evil
most definitely
the tension
is getting hotter
I'd like to hold her
head under water

The tension is (getting) hotter
I'd like to hold her head underwater

(ohhh… me and my girl
We got a relationship
Me and my girl mmm…
We got a relationship mmm hmm..
My girl
We got a relationship
Oh oh and my girl heh
Got a relationship…)
Take a hit
Take a hit
Take a ti ti ti tip from me

Bradley's on the microphone with RAS-MG
All the people in the dance will agree that we're well qualified to
represent
the
LBC

Me (la la) Louie (well) everybody run
till the rhythm it gets
harder
(harder)

(summertime and the livins easy)

There are two different songs: "Summertime" and "Doin' Time". These are the lyrics to Summertime - in "Doin' Time", replace all the instances of "summer time" with "doin' time". Not hard to understand.



Original Summertime | Reviewer: Salleeb | 7/15/09

One of my fave Sublime tracks and actually set me on a hunt for the original/inspiration which has opened up a whole new world of music for me :) Anyone who wants to check out some of the original versions of the song Summertime two of the best are by Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald. Sarah Vaughan gets my personal vote and you can listen to them for free on LastFM.com :)



song name | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/3/09

The name for this song is Doin' Time. The lyrics are not posted on Sublime's self-titled album booklet along with the rest of the songs thats why it is a little confusing. Please change the name, thanks.



RAS MG | Reviewer: Geoff | 11/22/07

Ok guy. We're all big Sublime fans here.

We all know how big the influence of Reggae music has on Bardley. So if you're diging a bit in Reggae philosophy, you'll find that RAS(3) is connected with RAStafarian :
------(wikipedia article)------- One belief that unites many Rastafari is that Ras[3] Tafari Makonnen (rastafarians), who was crowned Haile Selassie I, Emperor of Ethiopia on November 2, 1930, is the living God incarnate, called Jah, who is the black Messiah who will lead the world's peoples of African origin into a promised land of full emancipation and divine justice. ----
And about the original inspiration of the song's ¨name¨ Summertime, here it goes and it's pretty old :
(wikipedia again) -------------
"Summertime" is the name of an aria composed by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward and Ira Gershwin. A popular jazz standard, the song is in the minor mode. Gershwin is said to have based this song on a Ukrainian lullaby, Oi Khodyt Son Kolo Vikon (A Dream Passes By The Windows), which he heard in a New York City performance by Oleksander Koshetz’s Ukrainian National Chorus. Gershwin began composing the song in December 1933, attempting to create his own spiritual in the style of the African American folk music of the period.
---
2 of the song's versions I konw are played by Janice Jopplin (bluesy) and Miles Davis (instrum.). Actually, it's about only the first words of the sublime song that comes form the original song, all the rest is only impro or Vamp if you prefere witch means to vocally jam with words. Here, the first lyrics of the original version :

Summertime,
And the livin' is easy
... and then the rest of the song
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry

One of these mornings
You're going to rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky

But till that morning
There's a'nothing can harm you
With daddy and mamma standing by

Summertime,
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry

HERE YOU GOES GUYS
Peace

RAS MG | Reviewer: Geoff | 11/22/07

Hey Guys,
Ok I think you need some clues here. We all, as big time fans of Sublime how big is Reggae influence on Bradley, right? So if you're digging a bit on Rastas philosophy you'll find quickly a connection between RAS MG and RAStafarians.
Litte history :
****(wikipedia article)****
Haile Selassie 1 was born Tafari Makonnen on July 23, 1892. One belief that unites many Rastafari is that Ras[3] Tafari Makonnen (rastafarians), who was crowned Haile Selassie I, Emperor of Ethiopia on November 2, 1930, is the living God incarnate, called Jah, who is the black Messiah who will lead the world's peoples of African origin into a promised land of full emancipation and divine justice.
And about 'Summertime' inspiration, it's actually only the first lyrics of sublime's song. All the rest is a Vamp, a original creation.
****(wikipedia article.... again)****
"Summertime" is the name of an aria composed by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward and Ira Gershwin. A popular jazz standard, the song is in the minor mode. Gershwin is said to have based this song on a Ukrainian lullaby, Oi Khodyt Son Kolo Vikon (A Dream Passes By The Windows), which he heard in a New York City performance by Oleksander Koshetz’s Ukrainian National Chorus. Gershwin began composing the song in December 1933, attempting to create his own spiritual in the style of the African American folk music of the period.
The two version I know is the blues of Janice and the instrumental version from Miles Davis. Both kicks asses.
**** Gerswin lyrics ****
Summertime,
And the livin' is easy
*** then the rest of the song.....
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry

One of these mornings
You're going to rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky

But till that morning
There's a'nothing can harm you
With daddy and mamma standing by

Summertime,
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry

*******
Hope this is a light for you guys
Peace
Geoff Faribault



question | Reviewer: anonymous | 11/7/07

k i dont know what RAS stands for like it say Bradley's on the microphone with RAS-MG i know MG is the writer Marshall Goodman but yea someone answer my question please!!



not the original | Reviewer: C Missen | 10/12/07

I just wanted to know who the original singer of this song was... You didn't make it clear on your site, or any others that I visited, which disappoints me. The original artists should always be cited in a visible way.



Not the correct name. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/25/07

The name of this song is not Summertime, it's called Doin' Time. Please fix the name, this song by the way rocks!
