Summertime Fun

Summery heat

Sun baked
Sun drenched
Sun filled retreat

Sun kissed
Sunbburnt feet

What a way to end a holiday

Beautiful days

Boiling ways

Burning rays

What a way to end a holiday

Antiseptic pain

Frail again

In pain
In need
Incapacitated shame

Therapeutic again.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Sunburn is horrible but sunburnt feet!!! Ouch. For such a painful topic this is bright and breezy. And well done for singing with numb lips.

Hope the dentist experience went well. Your singing sounds great as usual. I like your poetic use of repeated words and also of words beginning with the same letter. Great take on the prompt.

Love all that alliteration, how creative and this really captures the ups and down of those temp. extremes on the extremities!

I love the word play you have going on here, it makes the song really fun and catchy. Great take on the prompt and I couldn't hear any indication that your lip was numb. You captured the frustration and pain of sunburn in a fun way. Nice work, thanks for playing!

The alliteration seemed like a fun exercise and yet it also works as a coherent little song. Good job.
