In the Summertime (You Don't Want My Love)

Roger Miller Andy Williams
In the summertime, when all the trees and leaves are green And the redbird sings, I'll be blue 'Cause you don't want my love ...
Miller has a way with inner rhymes and meter -- not to mention imagery: three colors in two lines! Williams has one of the best voices in the business, and his handling of these lyrics is perfection.
