Danger In The Summer Moon Above

Summer died that night.  I drove her to the train station so she could spend the summer up in New Hampshire with her Aunt.  We said our goodbyes and I was filled with the usual school’s out excitement, but still suffering from the angst that I might lose her to someone that she could meet while she was away from me.  We promised to write to each other every day and when the summer ended, September would roll around and we would be together again.  I would be alone till then, but I wanted her to have a good time and tell me all about her summer when she came back to me.  I was heartbroken when I got her last letter, as she told me that she was not coming back in September.  She had met a life guard while she was swimming at the lake and she was going to finish up her last year of High School up in New Hampshire.  I hope it snows like hell on her!

I’ll be alone each and every night
While you’re away, don’t forget to write
Bye-bye, so long, farewell
Bye-bye, so long

See you in September
See you when the summer’s through
Here we are (bye, baby, goodbye)
Saying goodbye at the station (bye, baby, goodbye)
Summer vacation (bye, baby bye, baby)
Is taking you away (bye, baby, goodbye)

Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September
Or lose you to a summer love
(counting the days ‘til I’ll be with you)
(counting the hours and the minutes, too)

Bye, baby, goodbye
Bye, baby, goodbye
Bye, baby, goodbye (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
Bye, baby, goodbye (bye-bye, so long)

Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September
Or lose you to a summer love

(I’ll be alone each and every night)
(While you’re away, don’t forget to write)
See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
I’m hopin’ I’ll
See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
Well, maybe I’ll
See you (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
In September (bye-bye, so long, farewell)
