Verse:
There's a time in each year that we always hold dear:
Good Old Summer Time.
With the birds and the treeses and sweet scented breezes:
Good Old Summer Time.
When your day's work is over, then you are in clover,
And life is one beautiful rhyme.
No trouble annoying, each one is enjoying the
Good Old Summer Time.
 
Chorus:
In The Good Old Summer Time.
In The Good Old Summer Time.
Strolling down the shady lanes
With your baby mine.
You hold her hand and she holds yours,
And that's a very good sign,
That she's your "Tootsie Wootsie" in the
Good Old Summer Time.
