 I'm a gonna raise a fuss I'm a-gonna raise a holler                    
 FBbC7F
 About a-workin' all summer just a-trying to earn a dollar                   
 Bb
Every time I call my baby, try to get a date
 F
The boss says "No dice son you gotta work a-late"
 Bb
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
 FC7FBbC7F
But there ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues                       

repeat Intro riff
Well my Mom and Pappa told me "Son you gotta earn some money
If you wanna use the car to go a riding next Sunday"
Well I didn't got to work told the boss I was sick
"Now you can't use the car cause you didn't work a lick"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues

repeat Intro riff
It's gonna take two weeks for I have my vacation,
I'm gonna take my problem to the United Nations.
Well I told my congress man and he said, quote:
"I'd like to help you son but you're too young to vote"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do,
But there ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues.

repeat Intro riff
