Dog Days Of Summer

It's a hot and lazy time of year
With temperatures rising high
A body doesn't want to work
Doesn't even want to try

It's time to lie around and rest
Not exert much energy
It's too hot to work but rather
We want to take it pretty easy

And if you do have to work
Either do it early in the morn
Or after the sun goes down
Sometime before the dawn

Oh how nice it feels
On these dog days of summer
When the sun drops down
The day has turned a bit cooler

So in the midst of winter time
When snow is on the hills
Dog days of summer sound
Kind of good amongst the chills!
