It is coming summer time, when we can enjoy a sunshine day,
And watch beneath the shady trees at the children play;
We can sit out on the porch at night in our easy chair and rock,
And listen to the striking of the old town clock.
When nights will be long coming, and cold winter days has gone,
All the boys and girls around the town will sing this little song:
Summer time is coming, lad,
Won't you feel so jolly and glad,
When we can rove around like a lark,
And chase all the girls around the park;
Yes, summer time is coming, lad,
Won't we feel so jolly and glad,
When the park police can make his spiel,
At the bloomer girls while out with their wheel.
It is coming summer time, and it won't be very long,
When the ice has left the rivers and lakes, and grass growing on the lawn;
When the cold winter days has passed away, and warmer days has come;
The boys will chase the girls around and enjoy lots of fun.
When summer days has come, and nights won't be so long,
All the birds up in the trees will sing this little song:-chorus.
