Artiestinformatie

Land   Nederland

Deze uit Amsterdam afkomstige band werd in 1960 opgericht door Wally Tax. De band heeft verschillende leden gehad te weten Leendert Groenhoff, Piet Sanstra, Appie Rammers, Leendert Busch, Ronald Splinter, Frank Beek en Tony Leroy.


Ze stonden in 1966 in het voorprogramma van het tweede optreden van The Rolling Stones in Nederland en daarmee braken ze landelijk door. In 1969 hield de band op met bestaan nadat er al eerder een aantal leden al uit de band was gestapt. De voormalige leden van The Outsiders hadden in de jaren 90 niet of nauwelijks contact met elkaar. Het project van Jerome Blanes om een officiële biografie te schrijven heeft ze weer bij elkaar gebracht. Gelijktijdig met de uitgave van de biografie besloten The Outsiders in 1997 een grote reünietournee te geven.


Songtekst

Summer is here and you're so near
The weather is fine
Summer is here and you're so near
Glad to know that you're mine

Birds are singing, easily ringing
It's a golden wonder day
The flower, the bee and you and me
Were all feeling gay it sounds OK
The sun and the sky and you and I
Were all feeling good like we knew we were

Summer is here and you're so near
Together we're fine
Summer is here and you're so near
The whole world is mine

Softly singing, birds are ringing
It's a golden wonder day
The flower, the bee and you and me
We all agree you were made for me
The sun and the sky and you and I
We're so happy together we could almost cry

There's no need to hurry
No need to hesitate
We're never too early
We are never too late

There's no need to worry
No need to hesitate
We're so much alike
That we don't have to wait

Summer is here and you're so near
The weather is fine
Summer is here and you're so near
Glad to know that you're mine

Birds are singing, easily ringing
It's a golden wonder day
The flower, the bee and you and me
We all agree you were made for me
The sun and the sky and you and I
We're so happy together we could almost cry

There's no need to hurry
We ain't got nothing to do
We're doing the best we can
I'm loving you

There's no need to worry
The world is treating us right
We're so much in love as we wait for the night
As we wait for the night
As we wait for the night
