On a summer day I wanna hold your hand
Look at me that way and I want you bad
To the riverbank we’re gonna carry our old canoe
On a summer day custom made for me and you

Hear the summer birds singing their lovers tune
I know what’s on their minds ‘cause it’s on mine, too
I wanna get lost in your long flowing hair
Honey, you know the place and only you can take me there

Where the air is thick and we’re breathing heavy
Paddle to the shade of a willow in an eddy
Your salty kiss and my brow is all sweaty
Your sunburned skin against mine and I’m ready

Gone from my mind is the wintertime
When I waited now with bated breath
I breath the scent of you consumes me
Blinded by our pleasures will we
Ever live up to this perfect image of our nakedness
Lying to our senses disregarding the consequences

But my mind
Was made for reason
But my body
Just wants to give in to the season

On a summer day I wanna hold your hand
Look at me that way and I want you bad
I want you bad
