Summertime
Please Go Away

I watched a leaf gliding to the ground
The first one I've seen turning brown
Maybe soon more brown leaves will appear
And autumn will arrive earlier this year

Summertime you're nice, but please surrender
To autumn's colorful  delightful splendor
Our time to visit mountains scenic sights
  Hoping colors will peak during our first night.

Next morning we'll walk mountain trails
Both hoping to hear singing nightingales
If we do, we'll squeeze each other's hand tight
Our way of saying, everything is all right.

Summertime, please can't you understand
We'll welcome you back next year again
But summertime please leave earlier this year
And allow an early autumn season to appear.

Summertime Please Go Away.....
