In the summertime when all the trees and leaves are green
And the red bird 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 red bird sings I'll be blue 'cause you don't want my love.

--- Instrumental ---

Once upon a time you used to smile and wave to me
And walked with me but now you don't cause you don't want my love
Some other girl is taking up all your time
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 red bird sings I'll be blue 'cause you don't want my love...
