Summer means the seashore. But watch out for those sharks in the sea and on the land. One of those land-based sharks is Mac the Knife. We have a song for standing near the ocean, By the Sea, and one for playing in the ocean, Surfin USA. Now if you can’t get to the ocean and need to cool off, here is one way to do it, take a bath with Splish Splash.
Let’s talk about summer food and drinks. July is Hot Dog Month. Perry Como has a song for that called Hot Diggity Dog Diggity. Need something to drink? Would you like a Pina Colada? Now to some birthdays, Ringo Starr was born July 7, You’re 16. Stephen Foster was born on the 4th of July, Oh Susanna. Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969. NASA also has an anniversary July 29th. And to keep the aviation theme going, Amelia Earhart was born July 24, 1897. For all that we need a little Fly Me to the Moon. Woodie Guthrie has a birthday July 14, This Land is Your Land. Finally one of the great summer bar songs where I come from is Sweet Caroline. Enjoy! Buy the related CD here.
