SUMMERTIME 3 X’s by “The Prince Of Darkness”, “The Maharaja” & the “MJQ”

The next three Summertime’s are so very famous that they also don’t need any textual fanfares.

It’s really Summer in Cologne now. Finally!

No lover could claim ‘baby, it’s cold outside’ for keeping her or his sweetheart inside.

There is no reason to stay at home, or on the internet too long. And so I’m off in a few minutes.
