I am surprised no-one has mentioned "Summer The First Time" by Bobby Goldsboro.

The sun closed her eyes
As it climbed in the sky
And it started to swelter
The sweat trickled down
the front of her gown
I thought it would melt her

She threw back her hair
Like I wasn't there
She sipped on a julep
Her shoulders were bare
And I tried not to stare
When I looked at her two lips

I can thing of no other set of lyrics which can approach that kinda zone. A close challenger might be Orange Juice's "Intuition Told Me So - part two" which rhymes "limbo" with "akimbo" but you have to take in Edwyn's willful and knowing irony there.
