Sydney in the summertime

Recommended Posts

It’s winter here at the moment but these lyrics came into my head any comments appreciated though I understand if you’ve never been to Sydney it might not mean much. 

 

Sydney in the summertime

 

In summer there’s nothing better

A ferry from circular quay

Crossing the harbour so you can

Eat hot fish and chips in manly

Feeding yourself chips with one hand

Feeding seagulls with the other

Then go for a walk on the beach

Yep that’s Sydney in the summer

 

Sun's warm and the sand is fine

Love Sydney in the summertime

 

Spending a day at Bondi beach

There’s more English than in Britain

But no one cares about the crowds

Cause water's warm when you get in

And you try body surfing waves

One you get, next takes you under

Then go for a walk on the beach

Yep that’s Sydney in the summer

 

Sun is warm and the sand is fine

Love Sydney in the summertime

 

The sky's blue no clouds in the sky

And hanging out at Coogee bay

Having coffee on the outdoor

chairs at one of the beachside cafes

While women walk along the sand

Bronzed bikini wearing stunners

Then go for a walk on the beach

Yep that’s Sydney in the summer

 

Sun is warm and the sand is fine

Love Sydney in the summertime

Hi, Mick

I like it in that it's kind of a postcard walk through Sydney, which I love as a city. Reminded me of my own very short experience while there back in February of 2004. Thank you for reminding me of that.  I can easily visualize my experience, the beauty, nature, the people and the sites mentioned in your writing. I'm sure the rhyming (which isn't necessary unless you want it) could be tightened, but I like this as is.  Only wish summer was in December where I live as it would be great to have a summer birthday.

 

Thanks for sharing

Manly Beach? I was confused for longer than I should have been. My mind is getting soggy. 

 

You've been quite prolific with your lyrics. Pretty good. Keep it up, quay?

Just checking if quay is used by Americans because it’s pronounced "key"

My bad. I was trying to be clever and missed. 

It was worth a shot musical quay 😁

Yeah...lots to like here Mick....I give it a "Good On Ya Mate"

 

I like the casual nature of this best...it saunters through Sidney in a very laid back manner which then picks up the pictures you paint very well

Glad you liked it I was hoping that I captured the Sydney beach atmosphere and I was purposely  trying to put in more near rhymes
