How will I stand the summer
When spring was such a bummer
How will I weather my winter
When my fall was such a ballbuster
It's spring and there'll be no spring fling
When my winter was what a winner
And I am taking a fall
'Cause if I ain't got you I got nothing at all
How will I stand the summer
When the spring just made me dumber
How will I fare my fall
Will I lose my mind in the wintertime
It's spring and I'm a spring ding-a-ling
It's summer and I'm just a little dumber
And I am taking a fall
'Cause if I ain't got you I got nothing at all
Thru' the 4 seasons
I'm searching for reasons
I'm not gonna take the spring
'Cause the spring don't mean a thing
I'm not gonna take the winter
My winter is a splinter
I'm not gonna take the summer
Summer is such a bummer
But I am taking the fall
'Cause if I ain't got you I got nothing at all
Thru' the 4 seasons
I'm searching for reasons
Vivaldi, The 4 Seasons
It seems to me to be a theme of love
With no variations of aggravations
Spring, summer, winter and fall
Spring, summer, winter and fall
Spring, summer, winter and fall
If I ain't got you I got nothing at all



Gordon Gano: vocal, guitar
Brian Ritchie: acoustic bass guitar, vocal
Guy Hoffman: snare, tranceaphone, vocal

Recorded and Mixed by David Vartanian at DV's Perversion Room, Milwuakee, WI
