Don Henley

Don Henley's, "Boys of Summer"
Better Lyrics:
Chores of Summer

Nobody ran the load
Nobody found the bleach
I smell it in the air
The laundry’s out of bleach
Thought I knew were clorox was
What did i know
Those clothes will stink forever
I should just throw them out, but

I can wash you
Your brown skid washin’ in the suds
You got that lid pulled back
And the rinse cycle on, baby
I can tell you
Our clothes will not smell strong
After the chores of summer are done
Original Lyrics:
Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
