Michael Jackson - Farewell My Summer Love (Original Mix)

*Composed By Keni St. Lewis

This was recorded by Michael on 31st August 1973 (at the age of 15) - the same day he also recorded Don't Let It Get You Down and Girl You're So Together.

This remained unreleased until May 1984, when it was one of nine previously unheard songs remixed and included on a 'new' Motown album, Farewell My Summer Love 1984 (the '1984' was quickly dropped).

This title track preceded the album as a single, and surpassed all expectations, charting at no.7 in the UK, no.37 on the R&B chart and no.38 on the Hot 100 in the US.

Original recording is now available on Hello World (The Motown Solo Collection)


Farewell My Summer Love - Lyrics

Oooh,
Farewell my summer love, farewell
Girl I won't forget you,
Farewell, my summer love, farewell, ooh

I found my happiest days,
When you came to see your grandma in may
I bumped into you by the corner store
I told you that you sure looked good, now

Your grandma's house was next to mine
We were together most of the time
But summer's gotten away from us
Time's moving too fast for us
(Bye, bye)

Don't turn around
'Cause you might see me cry
Farewell my summer love, farewell
Girl I won't forget you
Farewell, my summer love, farewell, ooh, yeah

When you return to your hometown
And you discuss your trip
Will I be the guy that you put down
Or someone that you don't forget, no?

I'll never forget you
And maybe next year
When you're out of school
You'll return, but until you do, baby
(Bye, bye)

Don't turn around
You might see me cry
Farewell my summer love, farewell
Girl I won't forget you
Farewell, my summer love, farewell, yeah

Oooh
Farewell, farewell
Oooh,
Farewell, farewell

If you remember my name,
(Drop a line)
Drop a line sometime, yeah
Yeah, ooh
Girl I won't forget you
Farewell my summer love, farewell
Girl I won't forget you

When you return to your hometown
And you discuss your trip
Will I be the guy that you put down
Or someone that you don't forget, no?

I'll never forget you
And maybe next year
When you're out of school
You'll return, but until you do, baby
(Bye, bye)

Don't turn around
You might see me cry
Farewell, my summer love, farewell, oohh, yeah
Farewell, my summer love, farewell

(Repeat to fade)
