Summer Life

Chorus - Ras Jahn
In the morning when i rise
Wipe the sleepy sleep from my eyes
Step outside into the sun
Check a newborn day has come

1st Verse - Force
The sum of summer summarized: sleep at sunrise
Visine needed in the evenings when I finally rise
Mostly mai tais, margaritas, hefeweisens
So refreshing at festivals blowing hippies minds
Wishing for warmer climes writing rhymes to the tides
The flow is lunacy (lunar see) control the waves on stage tonite
Go on get lost in vice, city rockstar the price
Paid fully dues done, moves made gracefully
Aware fully no role model roll phillies
And kill kegs too cool, crew’s Fonzarelli.
On your mark get ready on a daily grind
To find a market and a target audience to spark a concert setting
Till the cops are called to haul us in or turn the volume down
Sorry officer I can’t be held responsible.
I need a sponsor I’ve got a problem I’m an addict
Like Cool C said, you know I’ve got a habit

Chorus - Ras Jahn
Later on in the afternoon
I know my daughter's comin home soon
Togetherness is where I stay
I need your love, each and every day

2nd Verse - Ian I
Let the sunshine down upon my face
Let the breeze blow through this place when
Summertime's here I give thanks and praises
Watch the girls them beautiful faces
Let the sunshine down upon my face
Let the breeze blow through this place when
Summertime's here I give thanks and praises
Watch the woman them a roll so
Just chill out drink a beer and smoke a blunt
Herbsman here and you know i'm not frontin'
You like the vibe, then come and get something just
Blazing the fire in the summertime desire
No time to retire have to feed my entire family
Them looking' at me so beautifully
My son-shine daughter blossom like the tree
Just chill out as the music sets your soul free

Chorus - Ras Jahn
In the evening the nightbirds sing
I love to feel the dreams that they bring
Special feeling, senses reeling
We experience spiritual healing

3rd Verse - Force
You can find me late night with the mic device
Crowd hype, nuff hands up fuzz thought a heist happened.
Reaction when the track starts blasting.
I’m travelling like Carmen San Diego cross the atlas
I’m Cassius in a clash, classic rope a dope motion
The wally that we rolling got me floating, flow potent
So put me in coach on my post up and pivot
This isn’t just a scrimmage coming for the championship
Crews get livid when they see how we deliver
Ain’t giving idle threats check on the statistics
Can’t you see the distance between us and competition
Suggesting they’re gonna catch us definitely science fiction
Wake up and face facts can’t capture the clan
Cash rules we let the ginger handle bread man
These cats are steadman trying to get that O cake
On stage office space giving chicks the O face.

Chorus - Ras Jahn
In the morning when I rise
Step outside into the sun
Check a newborn day has come
