Seger in the Summer Time

by Y. M. Roger


He did not hear the phone because
Of
Seger’s ‘Night Moves’ on the air -
His jeans clung tight, as sweat dripped down...
I did not hide his phone, I swear!
 
Oh, yeah, such
sweet summertime heat,
I was ever so grateful for -
Skin and tattoos on rich display...
Mmm-hmm,
young and restless and bored!
 

Awkward teenage blues they weren't,
As almost thirty makes manhood -
And when
the thunder fin’lly came?
Ahh, roof repair should be so good...
 
He did not hear the phone because
Of Seger’s voice and nat'ral laws...
 

Ooooh, I remember...

I was a little too tall could have used a few pounds
tight pants points hardly renown
she was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes
points of her own settin way up high
way up firm and high
 
out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy
out in the backseat of my sixty chevy
workin on mysteries without any clues
workin on our night moves
tryin to make some frontpage drive-in news
workin on the night moves
 
in the summertime
mmm in the
sweet summertime
 
we weren't in love, oh no far from it
we weren't searchin for some pie-in-the-sky summit
we were just
young and restless and bored
livin by the sword
and we'd steal away every chance we could
to the backroom, to the alley, or the trusty woods
I used her, she used me, but neither one cared
we were gettin our share
workin on our night moves
tryin to lose the
awkward teenage blues
workin on our night moves
 
mmm and it was summertime
mmm
sweet summertime summertime
 
ohhh
wonderin
felt the lightning yeah
and we waited on on
the thunder
waited on the thunder
 
i woke last night to the sound of thunder
how far off i sat and wondered
started humming a song from nineteen sixty two
aint it funny how the night moves
when just dont seem to have as much to lose
strange how the night moves
with autumn closing in
 
mmm
night moves
mmmm
night moves
yeah
i remember
oh sure remember the night moves
aint it funny how you remember
aint it funny how you remember
i remember i remember i remember i remember
oooohh ohh ohh
and we were workin
workin and practicin
workin and practicin all of the night moves
night moves

ooooh i remember
yeah yeah i remember
lord i remember lord i rememeber
