    Lyrics

    When I was a young man courting the girls
    I played me a waiting game
    If a maid refused me with tossing curls
    I'd let the old Earth make a couple of whirls
    While I plied her with tears in lieu of pearls
    And as time came around she came my way
    As time came around, she came

    Oh, it's a long long while from May to December
    But the days grow short when you reach September
    When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
    And you ain't got time for waiting game

    When days dwindle down to a precious few
    September November,
    And these few golden days I'd share with you
    Those golden days I share with you

    When you meet with the young girls early in the Spring
    You court them in song and rhyme
    They answer with words and a clover ring
    But if you could examine the goods they bring
    They have little to offer but the songs they sing
    And the plentiful waste of time of day
    A plentiful waste of time

    Oh, it's a long, long while from May to December
    But the days grow short when you reach September
    When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
    One hasn't got time for the waiting game

    Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
    September, November
    And these few precious days I'll spend with you
    These precious days I'll spend with you
