Arto Hietala: Your Summer Love Now


No care in the world tonight
The weather's good, the sky is bright
But me I expect a cold breeze any time

Got a date at nine, got to get up
I ramble down to the broken clock
And shake the daydreams out of my head

Just one night, it'd be hard enough
to be your summer love now
it'd be hard enough to stay until the dawn
And you know there's nothing
that could keep me away from you tonight
except your vicious boyfriend Joe

A bottle of wine from last night
Reminds me of my favorite sight
Drunken Lady Lazarus at the dance hall

I put on my old disquise
The best black suit and a red necktie
You'll never know me from the bum you used to loathe.

chorus

And Joe, he could beat me up with just one arm
And Joe, he could do some irreversible harm
Joe rides the county with his Harley Davidson
When he tires of the road, he beats people up for sports
But tonight I just don't care because.... it'd be hard enough

hard enough, I'll be your lover boy now
it is hard enough, so I'll stay until the dawn
And you know there's nothing
that could keep me away from you tonight
except your vicious boyfriend Joe
