Verse:
There's a time in each year that we al - ways hold dear:
Good Old Sum - mer Time.
With the birds and the trees - es and sweet scent - ed breez - es:
Good Old Sum - mer Time.
When your day's work is ov - er, then you are in clov - er,
And life is one beau - ti - ful rhyme.
No troub - le an - noy - ing, each one is en - joy - ing the
Good Old Sum - mer Time.
 
Chorus:
In The Good Old Sum - mer Time.
In The Good Old Sum - mer Time.
Stroll - ing down the sha - dy lanes
With your ba - by mine.
You hold her hand and she holds yours,
And that's a ve - ry good sign,
That she's your "Toot - sie Woot - sie" in the
Good Old Sum - mer Time.
