Lyrics NOW IN THE SUMMER OF LIFE,
SWEETHEART,
YOU SAY YOU LOVE BUT ME,
GLADLY I GIVE ALL MY HEART
TO YOU,
THROBBING WITH ECSTASY.
BUT LAST NIGHT
I SAW WHILE A-DREAMING,
THE FUTURE OLD AND GRAY,
AND I WONDERED
IF YOU'LL LOVE ME THEN DEAR,
JUST AS YOU DO TODAY?

YOU SAY THE GLOW ON MY CHEEK,
SWEETHEART,
IS LIKE THE ROSE SO SWEET,
BUT WHEN THE BLOOM
OF FAIR YOUTH HAS FLOWN,
THEN WILL OUR LIPS STILL MEET?
WHEN LIFE'S SETTING SUN
FADES AWAY, DEAR,
AND ALL IS SAID AND DONE,
WILL YOUR ARMS STILL ENTWINE
AND CARESS ME,
WILL OUR HEARTS BEAT AS ONE?

WILL YOU LOVE ME IN THE DECEMBER
AS YOU DO IN MAY,
WILL YOU LOVE ME
IN THE GOOD OLD FASHIONED WAY?
WHEN MY HAIR
HAS TURNED ALL GRAY,
WILL YOU KISS ME THEN AND SAY,
THAT YOU LOVE ME IN DECEMBER
AS YOU DO IN MAY?
