The tax man's taken all my dough
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
He's taken everything I got

I gotta big fat mama trying to break me
Live this life of luxury
In a summertime
In a summertime
My girlfriend's run off with my car
Telling tails of drunkenness and cruelty
Sipping at my ice cold beer

Well give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
Live this life of luxury
In a summertime
In a summertime
Ah, save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
And I love to live so pleasantly
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In a summertime
