It's all the same to me what time it is
When I'm with you; I don't care if it snows.
It's nice to get up early in the morning
And listen to the birds that beat you to it.
It gives you quite a kick to see the sun
Light up the landscape, chasing off the dew.
And then again there's nothing like the smell
Of fresh, damp earth after a spot of rain.
I like the way that twilight settles down,
And all at once it's night; there goes an owl,

And there's the moon, with all the blinking stars.
Yet somehow, honey, the soft morning air,
The dew, the birdies singing fit to bust,
Sunshine and shower, morning, noon and night —
To cut it short, the programme as before,
When you are not around, just leaves me flat.
