You are the summer and I am the autumn

Don't wait too long

Your song's beginning while mine's nearly sung

Don't wait too long

 

Fall is a lovely time of the year

When leaves turn to golden brown

But soon fall is ending and winter is near

And the leaves start tumblin' down

 

Why must the moments go by in such haste?

Don't wait too long

Winter is coming, I've no time to waste

Don't wait too long

 

So while my heart's gay and foolish and free and still can sing its song

Share every precious moment with me, don't you wait too long

 

<instrumental-first line of a verse>

Don't wait too long

<instrumental-second line of a verse>

Don't wait too long

 

So while my heart's gay and foolish and free and still can sing its song

Share every precious moment with me, don't wait too long
