Because It's Summer

Summer begins and everything old is new again                                                                             Including my heart as it stretches out and relaxes in every moment                                      As it did in days gone by when the child inside of me was struck with wonder                                               And the world unfolded before my eyes like a three ring circus                                                       My parents took turns being the ring master then                                                                               As I ran in and out of danger                                                                                              Past the beautiful women toward the  big cats cage                                                                 And on to the the dancing bears                                                                                           Even the clowns were funny then                                                                                                       Before Frankinstien and Viet Nam began to huant my dreams                                                                                      But lets not talk about that today because it's summer                                                                 And everything old is new again
