Roger Miller – In The Summertime lyrics

(You Don't Want My Love)

In the summertime, when all the trees and leaves are green
And the redbird sings, I'll be blue
'Cause you don't want my love ...
Some other time, that's what you say, when I want you
Then you laugh at me and make me cry
'Cause you don't want my love.

You don't seem to care a thing about me
You'd rather live without me, than to have my arms around you
When the nights are cold and you're so all alone
In the summertime, when all the trees and leaves are green
And the redbird sings, I'll be blue
'Cause you don't want my love.

Once upon a time, you used to smile and wave to me
And walk with me, but now you don't
'Cause you don't want my love ...
Some other guy is takin' up all your time
Now you don't have time for me
'Cause you don't want my love.

You don't seem to care a thing about me
You'd rather live without me, than to have my arms around you
When the nights are cold and you're so all alone
In the summertime, when all the trees and leaves are green
And the redbird sings, I'll be blue
'Cause you don't want my love.
