    "Urge For Going" Lyrics

    Jody Miller

    I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town
    It hovered in a frozen sky then and gobbled summer down
    When the sun turns traitor cold and all the trees are
    shivering in a naked row
    I get the urge for going but I never seem to go
    I met a boy in summertime he had summer-colored skin
    Not another girl in town my darling's heart could win
    When the leaves fell trembling down
    Bully winds did push their faces in the snow
    He got the urge for going and I had to let him go
    He got the urge for going when the meadow grass was turning brown
    Summertime was falling down and winter's closing in

    Now the warriors of winter gave a cold triumphant shout
    And all that stays is dying all that lives is gettin' out
    See the geese in chevron flight flapping and racing on before the snow
    They got the urge for going they've got the wings to go
    I'd like to call back summertime and have her stay for just a month or so
    But she's got the urge for going so I guess she'll have to go
    And I get the urge for going when the meadow grass is turning brown
    Summertime is falling down and winter's closing in
