In the summertime
When all the trees and leaves are green
And the redbird 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
You'd 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 redbird 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 walk with me but now you don't
'Cause you don't want my love

Some other guy
Is takin' up all your time
Now you don't have time for me
You don't want my love

You don't seem to care a thing about me
You'd 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 redbird sings, [Incomprehensible]
'Cause you don't want my love
