Verse 1

I'm wishing I could go back to, the good times I once knew
Running away and playing all day out in the blue
Under the trees in a summer breeze, the sunlight shining through
Buttercup days and a tall grass maze with you

Chorus

Martha, Martha, Martha tell me what was done
Giving the day to day no longer having fun
Whatever happened to the warm warm sun
Were out in the cold, cold growing so old before our time has come

Martha, Martha, Martha tell me what was done
Giving the day to day no longer having fun
Whatever happened to the warm warm sun (to the warm warm sun)
Were out in the cold cold growing so old before our time has come

Instrumental

Verse 2
Time after time our heart may cause, the things we used to do
Thinking it over and running it over the whole day through
Watching the evening sun go down, and waiting for a minute or two
The morning back home in the dark and dusky blue

Chorus

Martha, Martha, Martha tell me what was done
Giving the day to day no longer having fun
Whatever happened to the warm warm sun
Were out in the cold, cold growing so old before our time has come

Martha, Martha, Martha tell me what was done
Giving the day to day no longer having fun
Whatever happened to the warm warm sun (to the warm warm sun)
Were out in the cold, cold growing so old before our time has come

Ah, ahah, ah, ahah

Martha, Martha, oh whatever happened
Martha, Martha oh what have we done
