(Johnny Mercer - Mayer - Bradtke)
The summer wind came blowin' from across the sea
It lingered there to touch your hair and walk with me
All summer long we sang our song and strolled on golden sand
Two sweethearts and the summer wind.
Like painted kites the days and nights went flying by
The world was new beneath the blue umbrella sky
Then softer than a piper man one day it called to you
I lost you to the summer wind (the summer wind).
The autumn winds the winter winds have come and gone
And still the days the lenely days go on and on
And guess who sighs these lullabys through nights that never end
My fickle friend the summer wind.
The summer wind, the summer wind
(The summer wind.)...
