June Afternoon

Didn't I tell you everything is possible in this déjà vu?
Try the river boat the carousel feed the pigeons 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 icecream and a magazine with an attitude
and put on the 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

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

Marie: This is a very Per Gessle-ish song... straight, simple, sunny. Per: A summer song , written in winter. Gessle-ish? Yeah, maybe. Marie: Yes, it's so much you... perfect for you to sing. Per: Well, in my litle world songs like this have always topped the charts. I've sent lots of dead simple songs like this to other artists and they all seem to have problems doing them right, especially if they've got big voices - whereas I can get away with it - almost. Marie: Almost always. Per: You know, our producer Clarence Öfwerman sometimes jokes about my songs being too much "ice cream and balloons", too jolly and lightweight - but this is actually the first Roxette song to include both "ice cream" and "balloons" in the lyrics. A nice first.
