Bitchin' Summer is a song by Avril Lavigne, taken from her self-titled fifth studio album. The song is the fourth track on the album. It was written by Lavigne with her husband Chad Kroeger, along with David Hodges, Matt Squire, and Jacob Kasher.

BackgroundEdit

Lavigne described the song as one of her favorites from the album and has stated that she prefers the song over "Sippin' On Sunshine", a song on the album that is very similar in theme to "Bitchin' Summer".[1] "Bitchin' Summer" is a primarily pop-rock song. Many critics noted the fact that she opened the song with an acoustic guitar, and the pop elements of the song were not very obvious until the chorus.

Critical receptionEdit

The song received mixed reviews from critics, many of whom found the song to be bland and typical of Lavigne's musical stylings. Many also reacted negatively to Lavigne's vocals in the bridge.

LyricsEdit

Everyone is waiting on the bell
A couple seconds we'll be raising hell
The sun is shining down
School is finally out
And nothing matters so we might as well

Everybody's bakin' in the sun
Come and party, do it while we're young
Move your body, when you hear the drum
So put your hands up

It's gonna be a bitchin' summer
We'll be living fast, kicking ass together
Like high school lovebirds
Gonna have a blast, make it last forever
I'll pick you up at the liquor store
Hurry up, we can fit one more
It's now or never
It's gonna gonna be be a bitchin' summer

Oh, bitchin' summer
Oh, bitchin' summer

Throwing empty bottles in the fire
Whiskey's got us singing like a choir
We're all gonna run
When the police come
But in the moment we are so alive

Everybody's bakin' in the sun
Come and party, do it while we're young
Move your body, when you hear the drum
So put your hands up

It's gonna be a bitchin' summer
We'll be living fast, kicking ass together
Like high school lovebirds
Gonna have a blast, make it last forever
I'll pick you up at the liquor store
Hurry up, we can fit one more
It's now or never
It's gonna gonna be be a bitchin' summer

Oh, bitchin' summer
Oh, bitchin' summer

Right right right near the beach
The party don't stop
If we don't get harassed by the mother fuckin' cops
Quarter tank of gas, about a half a pack
My cellphone's dying, but there's no turning back

I can feel the breeze
Steering with my knees
Drumming on the dashboard bumpin' to the beat
Hit the windshield wiper
Searchin' for my lighter
I gotta get all right before this all-nighter

It's gonna be a bitchin' summer
We'll be living fast, kicking ass together
Like high school lovebirds
Gonna have a blast, make it last forever
I'll pick you up at the liquor store
Hurry up, we can fit one more
It's now or never
It's gonna gonna be be a bitchin' summer
Oh, bitchin' summer
Oh, bitchin' summer

Pick you up at the liquor store
Hurry up, we can fit one more

It's now or never
It's gonna gonna be be a bitchin' summer
