The s[Em]ummer smiles, the summer k[B+]nows,
And unas[Em7]hamed, she s[Em6]heds her clothes;
The s[Am]ummer smoothes the [Am+7]restless sky,
And l[Am7]ovingly she [F#m]warms the sand on[B7sus4] which you [B7]lie.
The s[E]ummer knows, the summer's [Am6]wise,
She [E]sees the doubts with[Bm7]in your eyes,
And s[Am7]o she takes her [Bbm7-5]summer time
Tells the [G#]moon to [C#m7]wait and the s[G#]un to l[D7]inger,
Twis[G]ts the wo[Cm7]rld 'round her s[G]ummer f[C#7]inger,
L[E]ets you see the w[F#m7]onder of it[B7sus4] all. [B7]
And i[E]f you've learned your [F#m]lesson well,
There's l[E]ittle more for [Am6]her to tell;
One l[Em]ast carress [B+]- it's [F#m7]time to dress [B7] for f[Em]all. [E+] [F#m7] [B7] [E9]
The summer smiles, the summer knows,
And unashamed, she sheds her clothes;
The summer smoothes the restless sky,
And lovingly she warms the sand on which you lie.
The summer knows, the summer's wise,
She sees the doubts within your eyes,
And so she takes her [Bbm7-5]summer time
Tells the moon to wait and the sun to linger,
Twists the world 'round her summer finger,
Lets you see the wonder of it all.
And if you've learned your lesson well,
There's little more for her to tell;
One last carress - it's time to dress for fall.
