Summer '79

This song is by The Ataris and appears on the album So Long, Astoria (2003).

Our last day of summer, 1979
We gotta live up one time before it's over
We will make history tonight

Out at the drive-in
All of our closest friends will be sneaking in
You'll be spending your whole night
Trying everything you can to get that girl to notice you

We are the champions playing loud on the radio station
Everyone sing along with these anthems of our generation
Cruising down Pacific Coast Highway
Put the top down, crawl into the back seat
Let's create anthems of our own tonight

Down at the roller rink
All the cool kids crowding around the air hockey table
Hey, my best friend likes you
I hear you shout at me as you go skating by

We are the champions playing loud on the radio station
Everyone sing along with these anthems of our generation
Cruisin down Pacific Coast Highway
Put the top down, crawl into the back seat
Let's create anthems of our own tonight

Sneak out of the window, darling
Let's live like outlaws, honey
We'll never look back

Climb out on this rooftop
And stare at the city lights below us
This world belongs to us tonight
The kids will keep raging on and they ain't ever gonna stop

We are the champions playing loud on the radio station
Everyone sing along with these anthems of our generation
Cruisin down Pacific Coast Highway
put the top down, crawl into the back seat
Let's create anthems of our own tonight
