Sweet 17 in summertime
Drunk on Elderberry wine
Laughing in the cornfields
And taking our sweet time

The world was ours together
And all the things we had
Were cast up in the future baby
How could things turn out bad?

Now I ain't waiting for
Those days to return
You showed me what love was
I had such a lot to learn

Hey baby
I never knew a love so fine
(When you were mine)
Sweet darling
When you were mine
(When you were mine)

7 days a week, 365 a year
We tripped the wild fantastic edge
The truth was always clear

They could never tame our wild hearts
Or stop us making love
We were so inseparable
We could never get enough

And it seems like only yesterday
You made my world turn
And these days I think about ya
The fire still burns

Hey baby
I never knew a better time
(When you were mine)
Sweet darling
When you were mine
(When you were mine)
Alright

Everything we had was so complete
And all our young hearts wanted
Was to be swept off our feet, yeah
When you were mine in summertime

I know there's no sense in looking back
But everytime I think of it baby
I just have to laugh

Yeah, well maybe just sometimes, on my own
Looking at my watch and thinking how time's flown
Come back baby, like summer time
And we can break a bottle of that Elderberry wine

Hey baby
I never knew a better time
(When you were mine)
Sweet darling yeah
When you were mine
(When you were mine)

Hey darling
Come back to me one more time
(When you were mine)
Sweet darling
When you were mine
(When you were mine)
Everything was good
Everything was fine

When you were mine
(When you were mine)
When you were mine baby
(When you were mine)
Come back just like summertime, summertime
