"SUMMERTIME BLUES" var i original hit med Eddie Cochran i 1958, The Who gjorde også en oppsiktsvekkende versjon på 1970-tallet. NJS beholdt sin sceneversjon til langt ut på 1980-tallet. Eigil Berg spiller gitar på NJS' studioversjon av "SUMMERTIME BLUES", en versjon som dukket opp på bandets andre album "Rock Machine" i 1974. En langt
mere energisk live-versjon fra 1975 av "SUMMERTIME BLUES" finnes på samlingen "NJS - LIVE!".

Summertime Blues

(Eddie Cochran/Jerry Capehart)

I'm-a gonna raise a fuss 

I'm-a gonna raise a holler

I've been workin' all summer 

Just to try to earn a dollar

Ev'ry time I call my baby, tryin' to get a date

My boss says "No dice, son, you gotta work late"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm gonna do

But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

 

Oh, well, my mom and papa told me

Son you gotta make some money

If you use the wanna use the car to go ridin' next sunday 

Well, I didn't go to work, told the boss I was sick

“Now you can’t use the car, 'cause you didn't work a lick"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm gonna do

But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

 

I'm gonna take two weeks, gonna have a fine vacation

I'm gonna take my problems to the United Nations

Well, I told my congressman and he said, quote

"I'd love to help you son, but you're too young to vote"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm gonna do

But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues
