DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince . Summertime
( re-new definition of summer madness edit)


DeeJ. Valavanis’s

School is out and it’s a sort of a buzz 
a back then I didn’t really know what it was 
but now I see what have of this 
the way that people respond to summer madness 
the weather is hot and girls are dressing less 
and checking out the fellas to tell ‘em who’s best 
riding around in your jeep or your benzos 
or in your Nissan sitting on lorenzos

Back in Philly we be out in the park 
a place called the plateau is where everybody goes 
guys out hunting and girls doing likewise 
honking at the honey in front of you with the light eyes 
she turn around to see what you beeping at 
it’s like the summers a natural afradesiac 
and with a pen and pad I compose this rhyme 
to hit you and get you equipped for the summer time

It’s late in the day and I ain’t been on the court yet 
hustle to the mall to get me a short set 
yeah I got on sneaks but I need a new pair 
cause basketball courts in the summer got girls there 
the temperature’s about 88 
hop in the water plug just for old times sake 
break to ya crib change your clothes once more 
cause you’re invited to a barbeque that’s starting at 4 
sitting with your friends cause y’all reminisce 
about the days growing up and the first person you kiss 
and as I think back makes me wonder how 
the smell from a grill could spark up nostalgia

All the kids playing out front 
little boys messin’ around with the girls playing double-dutch 
while the DJ’s spinning a tune 
as the old folks dance at your family reunion 
then six o’clock rolls around 
you just finished wiping your car down 
it’s time to cruise so you head to the summertime hangout 
it looks like a car show

Here it is the groove slightly transformed 
just a bit of a break from the norm 
just a little somethin’ to break the monotony 
of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be 
a little bit out of control it’s cool to dance 
but what about the groove that soothes that moves romance 
give me a soft subtle mix 
and if ain’t broke then don’t try to fix it

And think of the summers of the past 
adjust the base and let the alpine blast 
pop in my CD and let me run a rhyme 
and put your car on cruise and lay back cause this is summertime

Everybody come lookin’ real fine 
fresh from the barber shop or fly from the beauty salon 
every moment frontin’ and maxin’ 
chillin’ in the car they spent all day waxin’ 
leanin’ to the side but you can’t spead through 
Two miles an hour so everybody sees you 
there’s an air of love and of happiness 
and this is the Fresh Prince’s new defintion of summer …madness
