Indian Summer
Beat Happening Lyrics


Breakfast in cemetery
Boy tastin' wild cherry
Touch girl, apple blossom
Just a boy playin' possum
We'll come back for Indian Summer
We'll come back for Indian Summer
We'll come back for Indian Summer
And go our separate ways
What is that cheerful sound?
Rain fallin' on the ground
We'll wear a jolly crown
Buckle up, we're wayward bound
We'll come back for Indian Summer
We'll come back for Indian Summer
We'll come back for Indian Summer
And go our separate ways
Motorbike to cemetery
Picnic on wild berries
French toast with molasses
Croquet and Baked Alaskas
We'll come back for Indian Summer
We'll come back for Indian Summer
We'll come back for Indian Summer
And go our separate ways
Cover me with rain
Walk me down the lane
I'll drink from your drain
We will never change
No matter what they say

Breakfast in cemetery
Boy tasting wild cherry
Touch girl, apple blossom
Just a boy playing possum

We'll come back for Indian summer
We'll come back for Indian summer
We'll come back for Indian summer
And go our separate ways

What is that cheerful sound?
Rain falling on the ground
We'll wear a jolly crown
Buckle up, we're wayward bound

We'll come back for Indian summer
We'll come back for Indian summer
We'll come back for Indian summer
And go our separate ways

I touch your hem you say
Let's stroll down Martin Way
Pick plums, abandoned farm
Who let norms come to harm?

We'll come back for Indian summer
We'll come back for Indian summer
We'll come back for Indian summer
And go our separate ways

Cover me with rain
Walk me down the lane
I'll drink from your drain
We will never change
No matter what they say

We'll come back for Indian summer
We'll come back for Indian summer
We'll come back for Indian summer
And go our separate ways

Motorbike to cemetery
Picnic on wild berries
French toast with molasses
Croquet and baked alaskas

We'll come back for Indian summer
We'll come back for Indian summer
We'll come back for Indian summer
Cover me with rain


also i picked this up on genius and i love it:



This little piece of summertime fun pretty much encapsulates Beat Happening’s essential persona: a bit deceiving, almost childlike but sexual, pop and cheery but a little somber.

Dean Wareham – of Luna and Galaxie 500 fame – said:

This song is indie’s “Knocking on Heaven’s Door”– everybody’s done it.

My five year-old son wants to hear this on repeat. He’s got excellent taste, but I hope that I don’t stop liking it after hearing it over and over!

If your son does not get sick of it, then neither will you

Olympia in the '80s was off the hook.

Back when K had a message board those of us who posted there were all able to get the Crashing Through box set for $15. Best $15 I ever spent!
