Songinfo

Dit nummer komt uit de hit-musical Grease. De bekendste versie wordt gezongen door John Travolta en Olivia Newton-John in de filmversie van Grease.

Het duet wordt apart van elkaar gezongen. Zij zingt naar haar vriendinnen toe hoe ze haar grote liefde in de zomer ontmoette en hoe lief hij was. Hij zingt op zijn beurt naar zijn vrienden toe en schept stoer op over hoe hij haar in de zomer veroverde.
Het nummer werd een gigantische hit in de Verenigde Staten, maar een nog grotere hit in het Verenigd Koninkrijk. In Nederland stond dit nummer 11 weken in de top 40 met als hoogste notering nummer 2.

In december 1990 werd een gedeelte van dit nummer en twee andere grote hits uit de film (You're the One That I Want en Greased Lightnin) gebruikt in een megamix. Ook dit werd weer een hit met 13 weken in de top 40 en als hoogste notering een 3e plaats.

Songtekst

Summer lovin' had me a blast -
Summer lovin', happened so fast.
I met a girl, crazy for me -
I met a boy, cute as can be.
Summer days driftin' away, to uh-oh those summer nights.

Tell me more, tell me more, did you get very far?
Tell me more, tell me more, like, does he have a car?

She swam by me, she got a cramp -
he went by me, got my suit damp.
I saved her life, she nearly drowned. -
he showed off, splashin' around.
Summer sun, somethings begun, but uh-oh those summer nights.

Tell me more, tell me more, was it love at first sight?
Tell me more, tell me more, did she put up a fight?

Took her bowlin' in the Arcade. -
we went strowlin', drank lemonade.
We made out, under the dock. -
we stayed out, till ten o'clock.
Summer fling, don't mean a thing, but uh-oh those summer nights.

Tell me more, tell me more, that you don't got her preg.
Tell me more, tell me more, cause he sounds like a drag.

He got friendly, holdin' my hand. -
well she got friendly, down in the sand.
He was sweet, just turned eighteen. -
well she was good, you know what I mean.
Summer heat, boy and girl meet, but uh-oh those summer nights.

Tell me more, tell me more, how much dough did he spend?
Tell me more, tell me more, could she get me a friend?

It turned colder, that's where it end. -
so I told her we'd still be friends.
Then we made our true love vow. -
wonder what she's doing now.
Summer dreams, ripped at the seams, but oh, those summer nights.
