Look at me, I'm only seventeen
The many years between us have been broken
Look at me under the evergreen
Life is a mellow dream almost unspoken

By the way, you said you're here to stay
Let me love you 'til tomorrow
Then it will last a year and a day
Maybe we're here to forget

Look at me, I'm only seventeen
It hasn't been too long but it's been lonely
Look at me and smell the tangerine
Life is a mellow song but only, only

By the time, you reach your lemon-lime
I will love you 'til tomorrow
Then it will last a year and a day
Maybe we're here to forget

Look at me, I'm only seventeen
It hasn't been too long but it's been lonely
Look at me, under the evergreen
Life is a mellow song if only, only
