Well, my mom and papa told me, "son, you gotta earn some money
If you wanna use the car to go riding next Sunday."
Well, I wouldn't go to work, I told the boss I was sick
He said, "You can't use the car 'cause you didn't work a lick."
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
There ain't no cure for the summertime blues
