The Lyrics

The Summer's Gone, wake up and yawn
Oh, the ride was grand..
Some days were hot, some days were not,
Still, we got tanned
Mosquitos bit, baseballs were hit
And kids had lotta' fun..
But, now it's done,
Yes, The Summer's Gone

Dug fishin' worms, got caught in storms
Had great cook-outs
Strolled in the park, sang with a lark
Gave sports game shouts
Had sunburn peels, rode Ferris wheels,
It really was a blast
But, it flew too fast,
The Summer's Gone

Now, Blackbirds bunch, Oak tree leaves crunch
And squirrels save
Fast pheasants fly from cornfields dry
Crows misbehave..
The air is chill, the nights are still
Signs say that Winter's near
And till next year,
The Summer's Gone..

Until next year,
The Summer's Gone..

I don't know the original, but this was very good. It read like poetry, which I like. 5's anyway, since I trust your pacing.

I'm with alvin, JP and Stephen... though I don't claim to know the market, I do feel a certain certitude that you could make a fine living at this lyricyst thing if you wanted to... but you're probably already independently wealthy and then why give up your diamond encrusted lear jet and mink socks if you don't have to, right?

Here in southern California, we missed those days that were not hot, but this is a clever depiction of the seasonal transition.

Thanks, TJC...You've got to be psychic to peg me so perfectly...(with just a few slight alterations)...You're talkin' past tense...before my exes pulled me through the pipe cleaners...I used to have a mini fortune in pork bellies stock, now I'm stuck with just the pork belly...and switch that diamond studded Lear jet to a rusted 99 Malibu, also the mink socks to a pair of ratty brown mid-kee knits
