​In the Summertime

This song is by Bill Anderson and appears on the album I Love You Drops (1966).

In the summertime when all
The trees and leaves're 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, 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.

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 guy
Is takin' 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, 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...
