I saw a man on the side of the road
With a sign that read "Will work for food"
Tried to look busy till the light turned green

Now, I saw a bear on TV and his friends were all drowning
'Cause their homes were turning to water
A strange kinda sad big, old bear
And I'm sure he would happily eat me
He'd tear me to pieces out there

Wake up, you sleepyhead
I think the sun's a little brighter today
Smile and watch the icicles
Melt away and see the waters rising

Summer's here to stay
And all those summer games will last forever
Go down to the shore, kick off your shoes
Dive in the empty ocean

Tell me everything will be okay
If I just stay on my knees and keep praying
Believing in something
Tell me everything is all taken care of
By those qualified to take care of it all

Wake up, you sleepyhead
I think the sun's a little brighter today
Smile and watch the icicles
Melt away and see the waters rising

Summer's here to stay
And that sweet summer breeze will blow forever
Go down to the shore, kick off your shoes
Dive in the empty ocean

One day, do you think we'll wake up
In the world on its way to getting better?
If so can you tell me how?

I have been thinking that lately the blood is increasing
The tourniquet's not keeping hold in spite of our twisting
Though we would like to believe we are
We are not in control
Though we would love to believe

Wake up, you sleepyhead
I think the sun's a little brighter today
Smile and watch the icicles
Melt away and see the waters rising

Summer's here to stay
And those sweet summer girls will dance forever
Go down to the shore, kick off your shoes
Dive in the empty ocean
