Summer's almost over, soon the leaves will start to fly
A few more days and then I'm leavin'. I had to come and say goodbye.
We both knew this day would come, dear; I warned you right from the start.
I've got the heart of a rambler, and soon we'll be miles apart.
I'm going away for a while dear, but I promise I'll see you again.
When the roses bloom, I will be there, and I'll remember you until then.
I never intended to stay dear, I meant to stay just a while.
But that was before I met you, with those eyes and that beautiful smile.
So don't forget me while we're apart, dear. To your memory I will be true.
I'll return when the roses are bloomin' and my heart will belong to you.
