Summer Runnin’

(Sung to the tune of Summer Nights by Olivia Newton John)

summer runnin parody song


Summer runnin’, had me a blast

Summer runnin’, I was so fast

Set a PR, crazy for me

Ran outside shirtless and free

Summer days drifting away

To, uh oh, those summer nights

 

Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!

Tell me more, tell me more

Did you run very far?

Tell me more, tell me more

Are you, like, a star?

 

He ran by me, I got a cramp

She ran by me, my tech shirt was damp

I dug in, when we hit the hills

It was so hot, I got the chills

Summer sun, De-hy-dra-tion

But, uh oh, those summer nights

 

Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!

Tell me more, tell me more

Did you wear your sunscreen?

Tell me more, tell me more

Are you chasing a dream?

 

Took some long runs out by the sea

Lots of miles with no company

Alarm went off at 5 o’clock

Hit the road, ready to rock

Morning runs, aren’t always fun

But, uh oh, those summer nights

 

Tell me more, tell me more

Did you do speedwork too?

Tell me more, tell me more

Did you fuel with GU?

 

Empty streets, cool air at last

TVs glow as I run past

My plan calls for easy, but no, not tonight

Sometimes, you just have to do what feels right

Summer heat, leaves me so beat

But, uh oh, those summer nights

 

Tell me more, tell me more

When’s your next race?

Tell me more, tell me more

What’s your goal pace?

 

It turns colder; marathon season begins

Lottery winners, you’re already in

Lots of long runs at marathon pace

Don’t get sick, don’t miss the race

Summer runs, something’s begun

But, oh, those summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more.
