Lyrics

It's fun to go sans air-conditioning
We feel the weather change
We spray each others face, we chase
Defeated by our own technology
We don't need birth control
Our kids would wear headphones, anyway

The last days of summer
The last days of summer
Hear the rumbling thunder
It's the last days of summer
And we'll wrestle with a stranger by the fire
Sip some cocoa, keep your spirits high
And we'll meet again
I know we'll meet again

We're changing like New England countryside
Our trees have intertwined
You're my Black Labrador, 1-4
We manage to pull out Excalibur
I'll be your sorcerer
You keep me up all night, alright

The last days of summer
The last days of summer
Hear the rumbling thunder
It's the last days of summer
And we'll wrestle with a stranger by the fire
Sip some cocoa, keep your spirits high
And we'll meet again
I know we'll meet again

The last days of summer
The last days of summer
Pack up the highlander
The last days of summer
