The summertime season is a time to get out and live. Whether you’re in a city or country setting, there’s no place like home. You can go out and ride the waves, eat ice cream, and party all night long. The sky is the limit! The sky is the limit. The song is all about living a life of pleasure. The soundtrack to a day at the beach is a tune that captures the essence of summertime.
