Song Author Paul Francis Webster og Hoagy Carmichael Performer: Perry Como og with Eddie Fisher Submitted by: jonagust


[Cdim]It's w     [G]ater[G/F#]melon w[Em7]eather,[A7] that [G6]summer k[D]ind of [Dm7]weather,
When p[G]eople [G/F#]get tog[Em7]ether [G/B] and s[A7]ing;   
[Em7]It's     [A7]the t[D]ime of y[Dm7]ear the s[D7]tars seem to d[D7/9]ance w     [D9]ith l[G]aughter, [G/F#]    
And the m[Em]oon's so [B+]big and r[Em7]ipe, it can h[Em6]ardly cl[A7]imb,   
B[G/B]right as a d[A7]ime. [Em7]    [A7]    

[Cdim] So w     [G]hy don't [G/F#]you me     [Em7]ander [A7] to y[G6]our best g[D]irl's ve[Dm7]randa,
And so[G]rta k[G/F#]inda h     [Em7]and her [G/B] the r[A7]ing?   
[G/B]For     [A7]it's the s[D]weetheart k[F#m]issin' s[B7]eason, [B7/F#]    
And all the w[G6]orld's[Cdim] in rh     [G]yme,
W[G5]hen    [A7]it's w[D]ater - m[B7]elon, sw[E7]eet    [Gdim]love t     [A7]ell - [G6]in' t[D]ime.

T[A7]his is the time to [Em7]sing this kind of p[A7]urdy l[Em7]ittle d[A7]itty   
A-w[D]alkin' along an' si[G]ngin' a song an' cl[D]inging to someone purdy,
The [Em7]type of a tune to [A7]go with the moon
Tha[Em7]t's sailin' al[Gdim]ong a     [Em7] way    [A] on high!

[Em7]Af - t[A7]er st[D]rollin' a while, for [F#m]maybe a mile,
Re[Bm]member to stop an'[Bm7/E] pop the q[E7]ues - t[B7]ion!   
[Edim]If your t[E]imin' is right, your [B+]future is bright,
As br[E]ight as a water - m[Bm7-5]elon sk      [A7]y!   
An' t[Em7]hen when you found a be[A7]nch for two,
Fou f[Em7]ound your cue to l[A7]inger
T[D]he chance you sought,[Em7] to show what you bought,

[D]You happi[Em7]ly thought[D] to bring her,
[G]To cinch the thing,[G/F#] you give her the ring,
You [Em7]purchased from the [G/B]five an' [A7]dime!
[Edim]Take her [D]in your arms an' wh[D7]isper that[Cdim] you are m[G6]ine    [Cdim]all      [Gdim]mine,     
W[G]ith [Edim]that l     [D]ine to sell, I'm h[B7]ere to tell,
That y[E]ou'll do[Bm7-5] well in[G/B] wa - ter - [A7]mel - on t[D]ime!

[G/B]For     [A7]it's the s[D]weetheart k[F#m]issin' s[B7]eason, [B7/F#]    
And all the w[G6]orld's[Cdim] in rh     [G]yme,
W[G5]hen    [A7]it's w[D]ater - m[B7]elon, sw[E7]eet    [Gdim]love t     [A7]ell - [G6]in' t[D]ime.

It's watermelon weather, that summer kind of weather,
When people get together and sing;
It's the time of year the stars seem to dance with laughter,
And the moon's so big and ripe, it can hardly climb,
Bright as a dime.

So why don't you meander to your best girl's veranda,
And sorta kinda hand her the ring?
For it's the sweetheart kissin' season,
And all the world's in rhyme,
When it's water - melon, sweet love tell - in' time.

This is the time to sing this kind of purdy little ditty
A-walkin' along an' singin' a song an' clinging to someone purdy,
The type of a tune to go with the moon
That's sailin' along a way on high!

Af - ter strollin' a while, for maybe a mile,
Remember to stop an' pop the ques - tion!
If your timin' is right, your future is bright,
As bright as a water - m[Bm7-5]elon sky!
An' then when you found a bench for two,
Fou found your cue to linger
The chance you sought, to show what you bought,

You happily thought to bring her,
To cinch the thing, you give her the ring,
You purchased from the five an' dime!
Take her in your arms an' whisper that you are mine all mine,
With that line to sell, I'm here to tell,
That you'll do[Bm7-5] well in wa - ter - mel - on time!

For it's the sweetheart kissin' season,
And all the world's in rhyme,
When it's water - melon, sweet love tell - in' time.
