Sweet 17 in summertime
Drunk on elderberry wine
Laughing in the cornfields
And taking our sweet time

The world was ours together
And all the things we had
Were cast up in the future baby
How could things turn out bad?

Now I ain't waiting for
Those days to return
You showed me what love was
I had such a lot to learn

Hey baby
I never knew a love so fine (When you were mine)
Sweet darling
When you were mine (When you were mine)

7 Days a week
365 a year
We tripped the wild fantastic edge
The truth was always clear

They could never tame our wild hearts
Or stop us making love
We were so inseparable
We could never get enough

And it seems like only yesterday
You made my world turn
And these days I think about ya
The fire still burns

Hey baby
I never knew a better time (When you were mine)
Sweet darling
When you were mine (When you were mine)

Alright
Everything we had was so complete
And all our young hearts wanted was to be swept off our feet
Yeah

When you were mine
In summertime
I know there's no sense in looking back
But everytime I think of it baby

I just have to laugh
Yeah well maybe just sometimes
On my own
Looking at my watch and thinking how time's flown

Come back baby
Like summer time
And we can break a bottle of that elderberry wine
Hey baby

I never knew a better time (When you were mine)
Sweet darling yeah
When you were mine (When you were mine)
Hey darling

Come back to me one more time (When you were mine)
Sweet darling
When you were mine (When you were mine)
Everything was good

Everything was fine
When you were mine (When you were mine)
When you were mine baby (When you were mine)
Come back just like summertime

In the summertime
