Summertime Blues
The Beach Boys Lyrics


I'm gonna raise a fuss, I'm gonna raise a holler
About a workin' all summer just to try to earn a dollar
Every time I call my baby, and ask to get a date
My boss says, "no dice son, you gotta work late"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

Well my mom and pop told me, "son you gotta make some money"
If you want to use the car to go ridin' next Sunday
Well I didn't go to work, told the boss I was sick
"well you can't use the car 'cause you didn't work a lick"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

I'm gonna take the weeks, gonna have a fine vacation
I'm gonna take my problem to the united nations
Well I called my congressman and he said "whoa!"
"I'd like to help you son but you're too young to vote"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

That's actually young David Marks on lead vocals, with Carl Wilson singing harmony.

Vicke

This cover is OK, but not more

Michael Sharp

Lead vocal on the track was jointly sung by Carl Wilson and David Mark's. Wilson was 15 yrs old .... Marks was 14!

John Paul George Ringo

Carl Wilson singing

I put both this version and the original in my Beach Boys covers and covered playlist. Thanks for the upload!

Thank you, I Can Hear Music! I was just reading about the song history on Wiki, and being a Who fan, knew their live versions.  This was recorded on the Beach Boys' first record, as an Eddie Cochran tribute.    : )

Mary Wealth

Mike Love on the spoken parts?

Jack The Skunk

I am a Bsach Boys fan but this version pales in comparison to the original by Eddie Cochran.

Ricardo Miró

I Think the cover is unimportant. The quid is the essence of Cochran Idea. This guys do it ok.

Blake Napier

I remember hearing this on Alvin And The Chipmunks from the episode in the season sung by Alvin Simon And Theodore While they were stuck on a island with the Female Chipmunks like on Gilligan's Island
