Just a few days and you'll be back in your school
I'll be sitting around by the swimming pool
You'll be studying history and you'll be down the gym
And I'll be down the pub, probably playing pool and drinking

It's over now, it's a summer romance and it's through

Just a few days and you'll be back in your class
Sucking up the teacher and trying to get an A... Pass
You're trying to hide your make-up and you're trying to flash your legs
Yeah, no sympathy from your spotty friends

I can't help myself, (I can't) help it if I'm older than you

Over, over
Summer romance

I need money so much, I need money so bad
And I can't be your mama, don't want to be your dad
I'm a serious man, I've got serious lusts
Going to have to do away with this greasy kid stuff

It's just a summer romance, a summer romance and it's through
It's over now, it's a summer romance and it's through

Summer romance
