This past summer I didn't...
Paint my toenails red,
I didn't laze around in bed.
This summer I didn't
Run a marathon,
I didn't even re-seed the lawn.
I failed to have coffee beside the Nile;
Not a soul in Peru saw my smile.
I didn't dance the tango
beneath the stars,
or mop the deck of a pirate ship
flying to mars.
If you were in England having tea,
there is no possible way that
you would have seen me.
I wasn't at the circus, the zoo or the fair.
I didn't have Elvis' barber cut my hair.
Summer is over,
Fall winds are blowing;
I'm daydreaming about all the places
I'm not going.
