Lyrics SUMMER IS TEA AND SALAD,
SUMMER'S A CHOCOLATE SHAKE,
SUMMER'S A DREAMY BALLAD
FROM ACROSS THE LAKE,
HEARTS MAY BREAK
GENTLY
FROM A SUMMER ROMANCE.
SUMMER IS GOLF AND TENNIS,
SUMMER IS WISH AND WHIM,
SUMMER THE MOON
IS A MENACE
WHEN A HER AND HIM
MIDNIGHT SWIM,
SUMMER
IS TAKING A CHANCE.

SUN AND WATER SKIS,
SUN AND LILAC TREES.
ALL TOO SOON
THE SEASON ENDS
AND SEPTEMBER DESCENDS.

SUMMER IS RELAXATION,
SUMMER'S THE SUN UP HIGH,
SUMMER'S AN INVITATION
FROM A SMILING SKY,
DAYS DRIFT BY.
SUMMER IS
A SHOE FULL OF SAND.
SUMMER'S THE PHILHARMONIC
OUT IN THE OPEN AIR,
SUMMER IS GIN AND TONIC,
WITH A LOVE AFFAIR.
EVERYWHERE.

SUMMER
IS A BIRD IN THE HAND.
STARS AND FIREFLIES
BRIGHTLY FRATERNIZE
WHILE I MEMORIZE
IT ALL
TO RECALL
IN THE FALL.

SUMMER IS WAVES AND WHITECAPS,
SUMMER IS CLAIR DE LUNE,
SUMMER IS DRINKING NIGHTCAPS
IN THE AFTERNOON,
WHO'S IMMUNE,
SUMMER
IS FOR ACTING THE FOOL.
WINTER IS GLOVES AND HOMBURG,
WINTER IS COLD CEMENT,
SUMMER IS SIGMUND ROMBERG
IN A MUSIC TENT,
PLEASURE BENT,
SUMMER
IS FOR PLAYING IT COOL.

TAKE MY PICTURE PLEASE,
I WANT ALL OF THESE
LOVELY MEMORIES
TO STAY
FOR A COLD WINTER'S DAY.
