Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Riff 1
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   I thought about my scene today
   And I've finally got the words to say
   The truth is cutting like a knife
   Gonna use it to cut away my strife
   The grass is green
   And the sky is blue
   My head is clear
   And my thoughts are true, yeah ...
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Calling out young and old
   We've got a thing that can't be sold, yeah
   The time that takes to rise above
   In the summer of love
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   It's the summer, it's the summer
   It's the summer of love, I say
   It's the summer, it's the summer
   It's the summer of love, I say
   It's the summer, it's the summer
   It's the summer of love, I say
   It's the summer, it's the summer
   It's the summer of love, I say
---> Play Riff 2 (8x) over Solo
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   I wake up each day to the sun
   And it's hard to choose what to do for fun
   A blissful world surrounds me
   And my brothers and sisters love is always free
   Oh, don't you know that I've
   Waited my whole life ... just to show 
   What's inside ... and let my love flow, yeah ...
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Calling out young and old
   We've got a thing that can't be sold, yeah
   The time that takes to rise above
   In the summer of love
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   It's the summer, it's the summer
   It's the summer of love, I say
   It's the summer, it's the summer
   It's the summer of love, I say
   It's the summer, it's the summer
   It's the summer of love, I say
   It's the summer, it's the summer
   It's the summer of love, I say
---> Play Riff 3 (22x) over:
   The colors blend as the prism divides
   If you get the chance (join the prison inside???)
   The colors blend as the prism divides
   If you get the chance (join the prison inside???)
   We can't say we get any sun
   We can't seem to get any sun
   This is the summer of unity, oh oh
   A rickety dance, to give me a chance, to take off my pants and play
   I take up the time to make up a rhyme and give you the sign to say
   Happy and tasteful ... crystal and sight
   ... race and get down, right?
   The colors blend as the prism divides
   If you get the chance (join the prison inside???)
   The colors blend as the prism divides
   If you get the chance (join the prison inside???)
   Oh I say by the power vested in me
---> Play Riff 4 over: 
   (It is the) Summer of love
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   It's the summer, it's the summer
   It's the summer of love, I say
   It's the summer, it's the summer
   It's the summer of love, I say
   Yeah, I said it's the summer of love
   My head is clear
   And my thoughts are true
---> End with a D (x577xx)
