Beatles

Nice lyrics..

The ultimate Summertime song, that never was..

I'm hanging round the airport
I'm waiting for the plane
hmmmm - something sweet and sticky
hmmmm - Runnin'down my hand

Popsicle of love
Gimme gimme gimme one of those
-It's summertime, boy!-
coconut delight
Honey honey honey don't let go
-It's summertime, love-

hmmmm - a kinky little sister
hmmmm - a-wearin' rubber gloves
A sexual health emergency
A copulation fantasy
You and me, ecstasy
Hate to be reality

Popsicle of love
Gimme gimme gimme one of those
-It's summertime, boy!-
I'm taking off my clothes
Honey honey honey don't let go
-It's summertime, love-

(summertime, summertime, ooohooh
summertime, summertime, ooohooh
sugar beat, sugar beat, ooohooh
sugar beat, sugar beat, ooohooh)

Ask - and it shall be given
Pay - and ye shall receive
Cigarettes and pantyhose
Hit me in da funnybone
Hynie hole, Tootsie roll
Jelly roll, it's Time to go

Popsicle of love
Gimme gimme gimme one of those
-It's summertime, boy!-
coconut delight
Honey honey honey don't let go
-It's summertime, love-

I'm throwing up my hands
Buddy buddy - what's wrong with you
-it's summertime, boy!-
I'm blowing up my mind
Lemme lemme see what I can do
-It's summertime, love!-

(summertime, summertime, ooohooh
summertime, summertime, ooohooh
sugar beat, sugar beat, ooohooh
sugar beat, sugar beat, ooohooh)


Thanks to dragonbait, I can't get this Popsicle out of my mind :-p

Unreleased at the time, but was included on their "Greatest Hits"-album, "Sand in the Vaseline". As a single, maybe in non-english countries ;), it most likely had been one hell of a summer hit for them (Hey.. if Lou Reed could get a hit with the lyrics to "Take a walk on the wild side", and Frank Zappa with "Bobby Brown", well... )
