Track Title: The Winters Go By, The Summers Fly
Prime Artist: Unknown
Lyrics by: Oscar Hammerstein II (O. Greeley Clendenning H. II)
Music by: Richard Rodgers
From the Show: Allegro 1947 (S)
The winters go by,
The summers fly,
And soon you're a student in "High"!
And now your clothes are spotlessly clean,
Your head is anointed with brilliantine. . .
You're brimming with hope
But can't quite cope
With problems that vex and perplex,
For you don't quite know how to treat
The bewild'ringly opposite sex.
What do you suppose Jenny would do if you kissed her?
Jenny is so innocent, so frail!
You could crush her in your strong, manly arms. . .
But that wouldn't be right.
Besides she might get sore~
Might yell, and wake up her old man!
The older you grow,
The harder it is to know
What to think,
What to do,
Where to go!)
Heigh-ho! It would be nice. . .
Think about it as you walk home.
Make believe you did it,
And make out she wasn't mad
When you kissed her.
Gee, wouldn't it be wonderful
If girls liked it too!
