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!

I just imagine some dudes playing this near the campfire that's what it sounds like

DJZwart Broek

I would like to go there

Me too!

This reminds me a lot of the Velvet Underground. Good stuff though.

@Miguel Gonzalez maybe not as great but this band is still pretty good

husker poo

@Miguel Gonzalez  i will concede the two aren't really comparable beyond experiments with droning. however, the whole point of artists like beat happening is that you dont have to be great at any instrument to make music. beat happening didnt do it out of laziness, they did it because they wanted to make punk music and they could barely play or sing. but you do you

@husker poo this lazy sleepy band doesnt come close to the power of even the VU's calmest songs.

husker poo

@Miguel Gonzalez so?
