lyrics

A Kid Named Jay

To be in love on a summer day
To be in love with a kid named Jay

When there's a drought there's pools to skate
Call me up, we'll go on a date
To be in love on a summer day
To be in love with making mistakes

When I was fifteen and you were sixteen
I was friends with your girlfriend
She left for the summer
I really liked you
I didn't tell you
We could have cheated
Instead we made skateboards

To be in love on a summer day
To be in love with a kid named Jay
To be in love on a summer day
To be in love with making mistakes

Tritonia1 to the Muse attention lends: Who both her Verse, and iust revenge commends. Then said t' her selfe: To praise is of no worth: Let our revengefull Powre our praise set forth. Intends Arachnes ruine. She, she heard, Before her curious webs, her owne preferr'd. Nor dwelling, nor her nation fame impart Vnto the Damsell, but excelling Art.

- Tobi, James & Chris.

P.S. Where's Bongo Randy?
