THE SUMMER'S OVER; yes, it's all over,
And autumn leaves are turning brown.
How clear the memory of it lingers,
How clear the happiness I found.

But now it's over; THE SUMMER'S OVER,
And, yes, it happened once again:
The unexpected chance encounter
That gave me more than just a friend;

That gave me love, I had dreamed of,
And that I hoped might never end,
But now it's over; yes, it's all over,
And summer's turned to fall again.

(Short instrumental bridge.)

Now it's all over; THE SUMMER'S OVER,
A special time that was to bring
The deepest feelings of passion and warmth,
Emotions that made my heart sing.

I found new love, I had dreamed of,
And never saw how it would end,
But now it's over; yes, it's all over,
And summer's turned to fall again.
