SUMMER (THE FIRST TIME)
“…We sat on the sand
& the boy took her hand,
but I saw the sun rise as a man...”
In 1973, Bobby Goldsboro released the single "Summer (The First Time)". His self-penned hit recounted the sexual transition from a boy to a man. The protagonist is 17 years old and loses his virginity to a 31 year old woman. The lyrics emphasize: "I knew nothing about love, she knew everything".
