The Endless Relay Race
The seasons run a relay race.
Iím not ready for spring to go,
Summer is heating up the place.
Seemed like yesterday there was snow
In the mountains and lakes up high.
Iím not ready for spring to go.
When itís so hot you want to die,
Many valley folk vacation
In the mountains and lakes up high.
Summerís reaching for the baton,
Leaning, stretching out hot fingers.
Many valley folk vacation.
I wished for spring to linger,
Triple digit tempsí a bummer,
Leaning stretching out hot fingers.
Spring has handed off to summer.
The seasons run a relay race,
Triple digit tempsí a bummer,
Summer is heating up the place.
