The Fame track listing

"Summerboy" is a song written by Lady Gaga and KNS Productions, who also produced it in 2007. The song is on Lady Gaga's debut album, The Fame.

Background

After being dropped by Island Def Jam in January of 2007, Gaga's mangement, at the time, wanted to expand her sound by working with other producers. KNS Productions is under the same management company and wrote at least three songs with Gaga in 2007 ("Summerboy", "Heiress", and "Panty Party"). The song was available on Lady Gaga's MySpace around July of 2007. While in the demo stages, the song was under the title "Summer Boys". The inspiration behind the song could be about a romantic fling or the transience of stardom. The ambiguous lyrics are one of the main charasteristic in Gaga's songs. In an interview revealed that one of the inspiration behind the song was dating a guy in the summer when you know the relationship won't last beyond it. According to Gaga, most girls fall in love during the summer when clothes are off.

That's the record that every girl wishes she could sing and believe.

Lyrics

One, two, three

Nowhere
Yeah we’re goin’ nowhere
Fast
Maybe this time
I’ll be yours you’ll be mine
C-c-c-crazy
Get your ass in my bed
Baby you’ll be
Just my summer boyrfriend
(Summerboy)

Let’s get lost, you can take me home
Somewhere nice we can be alone
Bikini top’s comin’ o-o-off
Don’t be sad when the sun goes down
You’ll wake up and I’m not around
I’ve got to go oh, oh, oh
We’ll still have the summer afterall

Sometimes
You might start a fi-ight
But I’m happy
Pretending we're alright
Sunglasses
Cover up my green eyes
My martini glistens, yeah
While checking out other guys
(Summerboy)

Let’s get lost, you can take me home
Somewhere nice we can be alone
Bikini top’s comin’ o-o-off
Don’t be sad when the sun goes down
You’ll wake up and I’m not around
I’ve got to go oh, oh, oh
We’ll still have the summer afterall

Hey there Summerboy
Let’s go for a drive
Take me for a ride
Never gonna close our ey-eyes
Hey there Summerboy
I’m a busy girl
Don’t have too much time
Hurry up before I change my mind
Hey there Summerboy
I’m taking off my heels
Let’s go for a run
Have a little summer fu-u-un
Have a little summer fu-u-un
Summerboy

Let’s get lost, you can take me home
Somewhere nice we can be alone
Bikini top’s comin’ o-o-off
Don’t be sad when the sun goes down
You’ll wake up and I’m not around
I’ve got to go oh, oh, oh
We’ll still have the summer afterall

Let’s get lost, you can take me home
Somewhere nice we can be alone
I have got my, summer, summerboy
I have got my, summer, summerboy
Don’t be sad when the sun goes down
You’ll wake up and I’m not around
I have got my, summer, summerboy
I have got my, summer, summerboy
And we’ll still have the summer afterall
