lyrics (scroll down)

Though we’ve got to say goodbye for the summer
Darling, I promise you this
I’ll send you all my love everyday in a letter

Sealed with a kiss
Yes it’s gonna be a cold, lonely summer
But I’ll fill the emptiness
I’ll send you all my dreams everyday in a letter
Sealed with a kiss

I’ll see you in the sunlight
I’ll hear your voice everywhere
I’ll run to tenderly hold you
But darling you won’t be there
I don’t want to say goodbye for the summer
Knowing the love we’ll miss

Oh, let us make a pledge to meet in September

And seal it with a kiss

Save your heart for me, which was released by Brian Hyland, but became a hit (number two at the end of 1965) for Gary Lewis and the Playboys, and….

Walk along the lake with someone new
Have yourself a summer fling or two
But remember I’m in love with you and
Save your heart for me

When the summer moon is on the rise
And you’re dancin’ under starlit skies
Please don’t let stars get in your eyes, just
Save your heart for me

 

When you’re all alone, far away from home
Someone’s gonna flirt with you-ou
I won’t think it’s wrong if you play along
Just don’t fall for someone new

When the autumn winds begin to blow
And the summertime is long ago
You’ll be in my arms again I know, so
Save your heart for me
Darlin’, save your heart for me

and 1965’s “This Diamond Ring” (chords and lyrics here) recorded first by Sammy Ambrose, but made a number one hit by “Gary and the Playboys” (it competed on the hit parade with other great songs of that era such as “I Feel Fine” “You’ve Got that Loving Feeling” “How Sweet it is to be Loved by You”  “My Girl” and “Downtown”).

Who wants to buy this diamond ring?
She took it off her finger, now it doesn’t mean a thing
This diamond ring doesn’t shine for me anymore
And this diamond ring doesn’t mean what it meant before
So if you’ve got someone whose love is true
Let it shine for you

 

This stone is genuine like love should be
And if your baby’s truer than my baby was to me
This diamond ring can mean something beautiful
And this diamond ring can mean dreams that are coming true
And then your heart won’t have to break like mine did
If there’s love behind it

Songwriters: Al Kooper / Bob Brass / Irwin Levine
