Bryan Adams – Summer of ’69: Alternate Lyrics

(Music should be a techno version of the song.)

I was a fiend for scripting
Working in a data mine
Kept me and my family fed
It was the summer of ’69

Gaming with the guys was cool
Partied up, we could hit real hard
Jimmy quit and Jody was buried
I shoulda known we’d never get far
Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya – I’d always want to be there
Those were the best days of my life

On that day it was rainin’
One of the main plants blew
We locked up food and made sure to stay in
And that’s when I met you yeah

Pulsing your electric torch
You were a second late, however
Though nobody understands
I had to pull the ‘open’ lever
Those were the best days of my life

Oh yeah
Back in the summer of ’69
Oh

That was a milder clime
Smart goggles were used less
And no one went blind
I guess nothing can last forever, forever, no

And now the times are changin’
Look at everything that’s come and gone
Sometimes when I get tired of scripting
I think about you, wonder what went wrong

Pulsing your electric torch
You were a second late, however
Though nobody understands
I had to pull the ‘open’ lever
Those were the best days of my life

Oh yeah
Back in the summer of ’69
Oh
It was the summer of ’69
Oh yeah
