It's not right you see
There's been a big mistake
Why would anyone want to take the best to take
It's not fair to you
And it's not fair to me
No one should have to feel the way
We've felt this year

So let's put the summer behind us
(Put the past is where it belongs)
Let's put the summer behind us
(Fast forward to next year)
Let's put the summer behind us
And sing only happy, happy songs
We'll sing only happy, happy songs

Make a deal with you
You make a deal with me
We're not gonna look back
With tears in our eyes anymore
And I'll be as happy...
Happy as you ever seen me
Just knowin' that we're movin' on...
Movin' on into the next year

So let's put the summer behind us
(Put the past is where it belongs)
Let's put the summer behind us
(Fast forward to next year)
Let's put the summer behind us
And sing only happy, happy songs
We'll sing only happy, happy songs

For the memories
For the times you laughed...
The times you laughed the night away
And songs for our history
So the stories will be told
The stories will be told

I think I've thought this through
If it's all right with you
We'll just smile from now on
We'll never miss
'Cause it's all right to miss
To miss the ones you love
'Cause they wouldn't want us
To feel bad anymore

So let's put the summer behind us
(Put the past is where it belongs)
Let's put the summer behind us
(Fast forward to next year)
Let's put the summer behind us
And sing only happy, happy songs
We'll sing only happy, happy songs
We'll sing only happy, happy songs
For the ones we love
For the ones we miss
For the ones we love
