Hot Summer Nights
"From the Bully"
Dead ring for old "Coogee"

Hot summer nights; Hot summer nights!
The beach  €“ a splash; soft tarts in tights;
A glow of distant city lights;
Ti-tree in silhouette; a white pearl sky;
Oceans of lovers, lovers pass my eye;
Soft, shaded grass; pale, shining sands;
Romantic sighs; holding of hands;
White tracks, with stealing shades of trees;
Sweet scents of earth; a gentle breeze;
A glimmer of white; a sigh, a sneeze;
Full lips of red, a kiss, a squeeze;
A stealthy voice, a laugh, a rustling skirt,
A world of whispers, & the world aflirt.
My oath, hot nights
Hot tarts in tights
Hot views, hot sighs  €“
Real hot, my oath! Hot summer nights!

Hal [indecipherable]
