每个人都有自己的夏日故事。写歌者会把自己的夏日经验写到歌曲里头。例如兰恩.薛尔德 (Ren Shields) 在他的歌曲快乐的夏季时光 (Good Old Summertime1902) 就这样写着:


此外,乔治.葛斯文 (George Gershwin) 与爱拉.葛斯文 (Ira Gershwin) ,还有杜柏斯.海沃德 (Dubose Heyward) 在共同完成的歌剧乞丐与荡妇 (Porgy and Bess) 中指出:「夏日的生活是那么的自在。」你在夏天会唱什么歌曲呢?

Everyone has a summer story. Songwriters have immortalized their summer experiences in numerous songs over the ages. In his song, "In the Good Old Summertime" (1902), lyricist Ren Shields declares:

There's a time in each year that we always hold dear,
Good old summertime;
With the birds and the trees,
And the sweet-scented breezes,
Good old summertime.

Collaborators George and Ira Gershwin and DuBose Heyward said, "Summertime, and the livin' is easy," in the song from the opera Porgy and Bess. What songs of summer do you sing?
