"All Four Seasons" as written by and Gordon Sumner....
With her smile as sweet as a warm wind in summer
She's got me flying like a bird in a bright June sky
And then just when she thinks that I've got her number
Brings me down to the ground with her wintry eye
That's my baby
She can be all four seasons in one day

And when the nighttime comes with no interference
To our warm summer love with all its charms
But like a thoroughbred horse she can turn on a sixpence
And I find that I'm back in Mistress Winter's arms
That's my baby
She can be all four seasons in one day

How will I know?
How can I tell?
Which side of the bed she takes when the day begins
She can be kind
She can be cruel
She's got me guessing like a game show fool

She can change her mind like she changes her sweaters
From one minute to the next it's hard to tell
She blows hot and cold just like stormy weather
She's my gift from the Lord or a fiend from hell
That's my baby
She can be all four seasons in one day

Watching the weatherman's been no good at all
Winter, spring, summer, I'm bound for a fall
There are no long term predictions for my baby
She can be all four seasons in one day

How will I know?
How can I tell?
Which side of the bed she takes when the day begins
She can be kind
She can be cruel
She's got me guessing like a game show fool

If it's a sunny day I take my umbrella
Just in case the raindrops start to fall
You could say that I'm just a cautious fellow
I don't want to be caught in a sudden squall
That's my baby
She can be all four seasons in one day
That's my baby
She can be all four seasons in one day

    General CommentIt's not about his daughter: "And when the nighttime comes with no interference
    To our warm summer love with all its charms
    But like a thoroughbred horse"... What the hell is wrong with you? It's about a girl he's infatuated with, probably his wife.

    General CommentWell I dismissively believed for years that he wrote it for EP, the boisterous Lilac, but the fiend from hell, the need for an umbrella ... oh well. Let's hope he didn't write this about his sweet Trudie. It's not that flattering. Sounds more like at the time, he had my wild number because as I recall, like a whirling dervish, I was sprinting through more than a few emotional bases. Wonder when I was cruel, though. Must have been but I don't recall any particulars. I'll try to remember that love is blind and perspective is everything. And who's to say you didn't inspire this all?
    Not me. I bring out the best in you.
    Which is?
    Perspective, as you say, is everything.

    General CommentI quarreled with my brother
    I don’t know what about
    One thing led to another
    And somehow, we fell out
    He runs around in rings
    But why, we cannot tell
    With sideways leaps—he springs
    At things invisible

    But where is the lady in the pretty gown?
    Where is the baby—who used to crow and frown?
    Like a pink rose—round she goes
    On tip toes
    With the pony under
    And then—oh wonder!

    Who knows why I stand and bay at her?
    Who know what I have to say to her?

    Up with you, lazybones
    Over the brink
    Don’t stop to pick up heart
    Don’t stop to think

    Of all the horrid breakfasts
    This breakfast’s the worst
    Who tumbled out of his bed
    Wrong leg first?

    Oh dear—what shall I do?
    Nothing lasts more than a moment or two.
