If ever I would leave you It wouldn't be in summer Seeing you in summer I never would go Your hair streaked with sun-light Your lips red as flame Your face with a lustre That puts gold to shame! But if I'd ever leave you It couldn't be in autumn How I'd leave in autumn I never would 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 spring-time? Knowing how in spring I'm bewitched by you so? Oh, no! Not in spring-time! Summer, Winter or Fall! No, never could I leave you at all!
