Dog Days of Summer

It�s a hot and lazy time of year 
With temperatures rising high 
A body doesn�t want to work 
Doesn�t even want to try

It�s time to lie around and rest 
Not exert much energy 
It�s too hot to work but rather 
We want to take it pretty easy

And if you do have to work 
Either do it early in the morn 
Or after the sun goes down 
Sometime before the dawn

Oh how nice it feels 
On these dog days of summer 
When the sun drops down 
The day has turned a bit cooler

So in the midst of winter time 
When snow is on the hills 
Dog days of summer sound 
Kind of good amongst the chills!

Dog Days of Summer

"DOG DAYS" is the name for the most sultry period of summer, from about July 3 to Aug. 11. Named in early times by observers in countries bordering the Mediterranean, the period was reckoned as extending from 20 days before to 20 days after the conjunction of Sirius (the dog star) and the sun.

In the latitude of the Mediterranean region this period coincided with hot days that were plagued with disease and discomfort. The time of conjunction varies with difference in latitude, and because of the precession of the equinoxes it changes gradually over long periods in all latitudes.

When it gets real hot in the summer time
I just want to lay around

Even the animals are too tired to make
A meow or a barking sound.
