lyrics

it was summer in daytona
i held my diploma but
my love had left me, i was all alone
and as my life was wrecked
i chose to disconnect my heart and phone

i was putting off decisions
working for commission at the hotel
when she climbed out of the pool
and wanting her well
i walked over to sell her

a protective lotion
if you gently motion it all over your body
the sun will not burn
the air is getting thin
you need to take care of your skin
and cover your head, you're turning red

she looked at me suspicious, dripping and delicious
and she asked me, do i look the amateur?
and ready with an answer, i held up my hands and said, forgive me

your skin is well attended, i will not pretend
that you are unaware of dangers from above
but if you've time for spending, i am recommending

(chorus)

and so we proceeded to talk
of global warming and sunblock and
i was thinking maybe she could be the one
but so many times i've been burned
by first impressions i have learned

well then she handed me her number and yes i took it from her
and the sun shines brighter than i've ever known
and by the pool i hold her and yes caress her shoulder
with protective lotion . . .
