Summer Babe
Pavement Lyrics


Ice baby
I saw your girlfriend and she was
Eating her fingers, like they're just another meal
But she waits there, in the levee wash
Mixin' cocktails with a plastic tipped cigar

My eyes stick, to all the shiny robes
She wear on the protein delta strip
In abandoned house but I will wait there
I'll be waitin' forever

I'm waitin'
Waitin'
Waitin'
Waitin'
Waitin'
Waitin'
Waitin'
Waitin', go

Minerals, ice deposits daily, drop off
The first shiny robe
I've got a lot of things I want sell, but
Not here, babe
Took 'em

Every time, I sit around, I find I'm shot
Every time, I sit around, I find I'm shot
Every time, I turn around, I find
Every time, I sit around, I find

Every time
Every time
Time
Every time
Every time
Every time
You're my

Summer babe
Summer babe
Summer babe
Summer babe

So Baze

Nice Pavement mix for the uninitiated:

1) Grounded
2) In the Mouth a Desert
3) Spit on a Stranger
4) Range Life
5) Killing Moon (Bunnymen cover)
6) Summer Babe
7) AT&T
8) Gold Soundz
9) Major Leagues
10) Secret Knowledge of the Backroads
11) Pueblo
12) Texas Never Whispers
13) Frontwards
14) Cut Your Hair
15) Zurich is Stained
16) Elevate Me Later
17) Here

Nice little trip around their catalog, pretty much every album, and a couple EPs represented. Nice flow. I burned this mix onto a CD in 2003. Moved it to my phone later. It has never gone stale. Give it a whirly bird. If you don't know the band well I promise you'll be obsessed by the time you finish the mix. All time greats! Pavement on and on to the breaking of the fucking sun!

Ice baby

Eating her fingers, like they just another meal
But she waits there, in the levee wash

I'll be waitin' forever

I'm waitin'

Sorry guys, I just wanted to read the lyrics.

And she's eating her fingers
Like they're just another meal
And she waits there in the levee wash
Mixing cocktails with a plastic-tipped cigar
My eyes stick to all those shiny robes
You wear on the protein delta strip
In an abandoned houseboat
I'll wait there, I'll be waiting forever
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting
Minerals, ice deposits
Daily drop off the first shiny robe
I've got a lot of things
I want to sell but not here babe, you took it all
Every time I sit around I find that I'm shocked
Every time I sit around I find that I'm shocked
Every time I sit around I find
Every time I sit around I find
Every time, every time, every time, every time
You're my summer babe
Summer babe

Great guitar and drum work, but I'm still waiting for the melody to kick in.
Maybe there isn't one?
This pairs well with anything by Violent Femmes, and you all can have it.
I'm sorry.
I love indie and alternative rock and I heard such great things about Pavement for years in various music mags,
but this all leaves me seriously underwhelmed (the singing / tune; NOT the instrumental backing which is indeed good).
Happily, some other bands (in my opinion) totally live up to their praise.

It saddens me that I tune into some legendary band for practically the first time
and find that I can sing better than the singer (*at this period in his career; I hope he has improved since then),
when I'm so used to legendary bands with singers who are awesome with great musicality,
who could kick my ass around the block.
And- I'm not a singer.

Will check out, however, all the rest of their songs before I write more, but this is a bad first impression.
If you guys like it- great!

Pavement is like a secret lover. Nobody I know knows about them. I try to turn them on to the band but they don’t get it.
You know what I’m talking about.
One of the best bands ever. Sometimes reminds me of a mix between Guided By Voices and Velvet Underground but at the same time completely Pavement.

@SpectrumRob I discovered HUM back when Stars hit the radio. I always wondered who influenced their sound. I discovered this 27 years later. Voila . . .

Mark Valentine

@Raef Inoh Obviously. 😺

"An old family favourite": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46XqDu_54iA

Original (lyrics may offend some who misunderstand the point): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKRSzztJ6_0

As much as I love Pavement, and their cover version is well up to par, I do still prefer the raw energy and driving bassline of the original.

Raef Inoh

this should go without saying but also The Fall

Francisco Jose Mari

@Jamie Lehmicke And a little bit of Velvet underground

Francisco Jose Mari

@Jamie Lehmicke Some of us, old folks do know....."Ice Cream Man" one of the best unknown songs ever

This song is 90's indie rock perfection, love the noisy guitars.

Jim Shipp

Great tune!!

@Puto Cracker Here they show their true inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_STY9g7-YPA (perhaps forgivingly omitting an obligatory lyric)
