Two WIP variations on a theme and a riff on Don't Be Cruel

I've been writing a lot of song lyrics lately.

This one is actually one I've had in my back pocket for years and finally finished, taking a divergent direction from the Elvis Presley song. I had the rhyme scheme and the first four lines of the chorus worked out for the longest time, but hadn't quite fleshed out the rest of the lyrics.

And the two are variations on the same basic musical theme taken in two separate directions. The first one, all I had for a long time was the "...in the summer" bit. Like, I would have "in the summer" pop into my head all the time, and knew that there were words that were meant to precede those ones, but not what they were supposed to be.
