June Afternoon

Words & Music by Per Gessle

Didn’t I tell you everything is possible in this déjà vu?
Try the river boat, the carousel, feed the pigeos, Bar-B-Q.
Look at all the people, happy faces all around.
Smiling, throwing kisses, busy making lazy sounds

It’s a bright June afternoon, it never gets dark.
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun.
Get your green green tambourine, let’s play in the park.
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun

Some folks are on blankets, slowly daydreaming and reaching for their food.
Let’s go buy an ice-cream and a magazine with an attitude
And put on a cassette, we can pretend that you’re a star
Cos life’s so very simple just like la-la-la

It’s a bright June afternoon, it never gets dark.
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun.
Get your green green tambourine, let’s play in the park.
Wah-wah! Here comes the sun

There’s a painter painting his masterpiece.
There are some squirrels jumping in the trees.
There’s a wide-eyed boy with a red balloon.
All my life I’ve longed for this afternoon.
