If ever I would leave you, it wouldn't be in summer
Seeing you in summer, I never would go
Your hair streaked with sunlight, your lips red as flame
Your face with a luster that puts gold to shame
But if I'd ever leave you, how could it be in autumn
How I'd leave in autumn, I never will know
I've seen how you sparkle when fall nips the air
I know you in autumn and I must be there
And could I leave you running merrily through the snow
Or on a wintry evening when you catch the fire's glow?
If ever I would leave you, how could it be in springtime?
Knowing how in spring I'm bewitched by you so
Oh, no, not in springtime, summer, winter, or fall
No, never could I leave you at all
