Lyrics
Wasn't so long ago
That every year your family
Would rent a house from June to Labor Day
Summer in Monterey

None of us wore no clothes
In Monterey our feet were bare
Our shorts were all we'd ever wear
And I would jump for joy that you were there

Take you to the movie show
Watching arm in arm
Used to hope the film would work its charm
Then

You and I we'd saunter home
Far behind the crowd
Linger longer than your ma and pa had allowed
Never in love before

We couldn't wait to be alone
To beat it to the Ocean View Cafe
That was our hideaway
Summer in Monterey

Monterey oh Monterey
Monterey oh Monterey
I would love the crazy world to always stay that way
Ocean breeze

Breaking seas
Out on the rocks around the windy curving bay
Summer in Monterey
Ocean breeze

Breaking seas
Out on the rocks around the windy curving bay
Summer in Monterey
