Lyrics
Summertime, oh Summer friend, come spend some time with me.
Come with me and take my hand and sit down by this tree.
I'll play a tune and sing a song and stay here for a while;
And you can close your pretty eyes and let me see you smile.

And if you want to hear one more I'll play it with my toes;
And if you long to linger longer - That's the way she goes.

Autumn's Child she stayed awhile; she laughed and drank my wine.
The moon came up; the sun went down; we lost our sense of time.
I poured one more and took my harp and played another tune;
And like the wine that flowed so free we mellowed 'neath the moon.

And if you want to drink one more I'll pour it with my toes;
And if you long to linger longer - That's the way she goes.

Winter Babe she took me in; she kept me from the cold. She
Held me to her breast as in her arms she did enfold me.
Her heart was warm; her bed was soft; I loved her in her room.
And then I picked up my guitar and played her one more tune.

And if you want to love once more I'll do it with my toes;
And if you long to linger longer - That's the way she goes.

Springtime Mama by my side, I reach to touch her hair;
Turn around to kiss her cheek, and find that she's not there.
While all the trees are budding leaves, and birds wake up at dawn,
I turn to play her one more tune, and find that she is gone.

So, like the birds and bees and trees, my loneliness she grows;
Although I begged her linger longer - that's the way she goes.
