The Lyrics

It's the middle of summer and i was meant to go to the beach today... but we had crap weather...So instead i devoted a song to the joys of summer, and how it SHOULD be!
It's hard but I'll try
This year I'll achieve
What I hope to find
A perfect tan on me

But now i got burnt :I'm in so much pain
I wouldn't have a red face if i had a brain, and
It's not easy to be tanned

I wish I wouldn't fry
I've just burnt my knees
Why did i just lie
For so long by the sea

I may look so burnt:but don't laugh at me
There is a reason, why i used no sunscreen
My lessons not learnt: cause soon you will see
I'll have a tan, that looks really mean but
It's not easy to be tanned

My chest and my back are killing me
But It's all right: I'll sleep on my side tonight
I'm so crazy: I've burnt everything

I can't sleep at night
I can't get comfy
I miss being white
I should have used sunscreen

I'm only a girl with silly red feet
People stare at me as i walk down the street
Only a girl in a funny red heap
Maybe next time I'll avoid the heat

It's not easy to be tanned.
