How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

Not explicitly about summer but the surf-rock-like riff and the lyrics about beaches clearly, at least in my mind, makes it a summer-related song.

"It's That Time of the Year" by Len Barry...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz_T6n12nZs

For those that prefer something mellower,
"Summer" by John Denver...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXj7kI0D00E

For those that prefer something more exotic,
"Summer Samba" by Astrid Gilberto (So Nice)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hB5F972QUk
Her "Girl from Ipanema" also has a summerlike feel even though Brasil is in winter right now.
