"Summer Wind" is an adult contemporary song written by Johnny Mercer in 1966. The song was first recorded Wayne Newton and later by Frank Sinatra, and even later by several others including Michael Bublé and the song's writer, Johnny Mercer.

The Sinatra cover, at a time ranked number one on the Easy Listening chart, has become the most famous version of "Summer Wind", used in commercials, films, and television shows.

Along with Julio Iglesias, Sinatra rerecorded this song under Capitol Records for his 1993 album, Duets.

Lyrics Edit

The summer wind, came blowin' in, from across the sea
It lingered there, to touch your hair, and walk with me
All summer long, we sang a song, and then we strolled that golden sand
Two sweethearts, and the summer wind

Like painted kites, those days and nights, they went flyin' by
The world was new, beneath a blue, umbrella sky
Then softer than, a piper man, one day it called to you
I lost you, I lost you to the summer wind

The autumn wind, and the winter winds, they have come and gone
And still the days, those lonely days, they go on and on
And guess who sighs his lullabies, through nights that never end
My fickle friend, the summer wind
The summer wind warm summer wind
Mmm the summer wind
