When the fat old sun in the sky is falling
Summer's thunder time of year
Distant bells, new mown grass
By the river holding hands
And if you sit don't make a sound
And if you hear as the warm night falls
Sing to me, sing to me
Summer evenin' birds are calling
The last sunlight disappears
Pick your feet up off the ground
The silver sound from a time so strange
When that fat old sun in the sky is falling
