Well, the sun’s not so hot in the sky today
And you know I can see summertime slipping on away
A few more geese are gone, a few more leaves turning red
But the grass is as soft as a feather in a featherbed
So I’ll be king and you’ll be queen
Our kingdom’s gonna be this little patch of green

Won’t you lie down here right now
In this september grass
Won’t you lie down with me now
September grass

Oh the memory is like the sweetest pain
Yeah, I kissed the girl at a football game
I can still smell the sweat and the grass stains
We walked home together. I was never the same.

But that was a long time ago
And where is she now? I don’t know

Won’t you lie down here right now
In this september grass
Won’t you lie down with me now
September grass

Oh, september grass is the sweetest kind
It goes down easy like apple wine
Hope you don’t mind if I pour you some
Made that much sweeter by the winter to come

Do you see those ants dancing on a blade of grass?
Do you know what I know? that’s you and me, baby
We’re so small and the world’s so vast
We found each other down in the grass

Won’t you lie down with me right here
September grass
Won’t you lie down with me now
In this september grass

Lie down
Lie down
Lie down
Lie down

(repeat)

Won’t you lie down here right now
In this september grass
Won’t you lie down here now
In this september grass
