When I was a young man a-courtin' the girls,
I played me a waitin' game;
If a maid refused me with a toss of her curls, 
I'd let the ol' world take a couple of twirls,
And I'd ply her with tears instead of pearls,
And as time came around she came my way,
As time came around, she came.

(Refrain:)
But it's a long, long time from May to December,
And 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.

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.

(Verse 2:)
When you meet with the young men in the early Spring
They'll count you with wine and with song
They'll woo you with words and a clover ring
But if you examine the goods that they bring
They have little to offer but the songs that they sing
And a plentiful waste of time of day
A plentiful waste of time

(Repeat Refrain)
