1) It is the springtime of my loving,  The second season I am to know...
2) Slight variation with mellotron see below
3)It is the summer of my smiles       Flee from me keepers of the gloom
4) These are the seasons of emotion And like the winds they rise and
fall

You are the sunlight in my growing,    So little warmth I've felt before
Mellotron solo
Speak to me only with your eyes ohhhh  It is to you I give this tune
This is the wonder of devotion         I see the torch we all must hold

It isn't hard to feel Me Glowing        I watched the fire that Grew so
mellatron solo
It isn't hard to recognize These things are clear from all from time to
This is the mistery of the quotient.quotient Upon us all a little rain
must fall
