Anka, Paul - Summer's Gone Lyrics




Summer's gone and no songbirds are singing
Because you're gone, gone from my arms
Gone from my lips but you're still in my heart

What to do? Oh, I'm left here just crying
Over you, oh, I'm so blue
What can I do now that you're gone?

The days, they prolong now that you're gone
My nights, they leave me blue (you're so blue)
I don't know why there are tears in my eyes
Can it be that I'm still in love with you?

Summer's gone and no songbirds are singing
Because you're gone, gone from my arms (from my arms)
Gone from my lips (from my lips) but still in my heart
(Still in my heart, still in my heart)

Summer's gone and no songbirds are singing
Because you're gone, gone from my arms
Gone from my lips but still in my heart
(Summer's gone but you're still in my heart)

Anka, Paul Summer's Gone Comments
  1. Jorge Mario Rodas

    Good song from the past. Paul Anka sang it with such feeling he makes me remember how sensitive I was when I was a teenager. He compares the end of summer with the end of a love affair. Very good really.

  2. Clau b

    Love Paul Anka's music, it reminds me of my mom

  3. Thomas Melchiorre

    Wildwood By The Sea Labor Day means Summer's Gone and it feels like the end of the world for the yon and beyond teens

  4. Darren Haynes

    Anyone who knows, knows. Was listening to this when I was 15 ❤️

  5. Clyde P

    Debuted on 26 Sep 1960. Topped out at #11 on 31 Oct 1960, the middle of its 11-week stay.

    Summer's gone and no songbirds are singing
    Because you're gone, gone from my arms
    Gone from my lips but you're still in my heart
    What to do? Oh, I'm left here just crying
    Over you, oh, I'm so blue
    What can I do now that you're gone?
    The days, they prolong now that you're gone
    My nights, they leave me blue (you're so blue)
    I don't know why there are tears in my eyes
    Can it be that I'm still in love with you?
    Summer's gone and no songbirds are singing
    Because you're gone, gone from my arms (from my arms)
    Gone from my lips (from my lips) but still in my heart
    (Still in my heart, still in my heart)
    Summer's gone and no songbirds are singing
    Because you're gone, gone from my arms
    Gone from my lips but still in my heart
    (Summer's gone but you're still in my heart)

    At the time his "Summer's Gone" was at #61 on Billboard's Top 100, that would also be it's eleven and final week on the chart, five weeks earlier it had peaked at #11 {for 1 week}...
    It reached #29 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart...

    Summer's gone and no songbirds are singing
    Because you're gone, gone from my arms
    Gone from my lips but you're still in my heart

    What to do? Oh, I'm left here just crying
    Over you, oh, I'm so blue
    What can I do now that you're gone?

    The days, they prolong now that you're gone
    My nights, they leave me blue (you're so blue)
    I don't know why there are tears in my eyes
    Can it be that I'm still in love with you?

    Summer's gone and no songbirds are singing
    Because you're gone, gone from my arms (from my arms)
    Gone from my lips (from my lips) but still in my heart
    (Still in my heart, still in my heart)

    Summer's gone and no songbirds are singing
    Because you're gone, gone from my arms
    Gone from my lips but still in my heart

  34. Robert Carter

    Yes summers gone and with it went you !!!

  35. pedro daruna

    One of the most beautiful songs ever..... Guines 1962

  36. Ignacio Altuna

    Uno de los grandes fervores desde 1957 a los '60: Paul Anka, su particular voz, su modo de vocalizar, los sentimentales temas que creaba y ese toque magistral de Don Costa y los siguientes directores que lo acompañaron, como Sid Feller y Stan Applebaum. Paul anka, y su equipo, tuvieron un singular talento para elegir los temas que más podían llegar a las jóvenes almitas adolescentes de aquellos tiempos, contando situaciones triviales, aunque mus cercanas a los juveniles espíritus de tan lejanas épocas, impactando con sus hits, regularmente, cada dos meses, con una nueva canción magnetizando a su devoto público. Otro de los nombres de fama para la enorme galería de astros y estrellas del S. XX.

    Chau! Desde BA, Nacho!

    wad44

    Verdaderamente un gran talento y todavía canta tambien.

    luistakumi

    Paul anka lo escucho desde q tenía 16 años y ahora tengo 30. Me encanta sus canciones y está canción q tengo entendido es una canción de jazz. Gran cantante Paul

    fantastica canzone come tutte le sue canzoni grande p .Anka!!!!

  38. Robert Carter

    I remember so well that karen was gone that summer of 1960///

  39. Edith S. Najarian

    Use too love slow dancing to this song. The excitment of your partners strong hands as your thighs touch in accidental anticipation. Oh the smell of that special-boy his scent lingering strong embrace. That was enough back then. So innocent the times and Paul Anka was the best.

    walkingthec0w

    Love this comment. What year were you born?

  40. Tiger Anatolian

  44. Jorge Mario Rodas

    Great romantic song. I liked it so much when it was released more than fifty years ago and still like it. I was fourteen then,  I recall all my classmates specially the girls liked this song. 

  45. dewey44

    Remember this song very well. Anka was a great crooner. Thank you for posting.

    @benozzo1942 è lo stesso per me questo è il motivo per cui a pochi anni fa ho creato il fan gruppo paulankathebest.groupbox dove si possono trovare tutte le notizie su Paul Anka

  50. Mr Casper

    anyone know that song and who sings it? the lyrics are like "I need someone.. someone to love me! someone to hold me!"

    Dale Trevors

    Maybe "Lonely Boy" by Paul Anka?

  59. Caryl McDermott

    @aghnifrid you are perfectly right he was and is still the greatest. You will be surprised to read generally unknown facts about his music about his life on my multiply site "paulankathebest" any Paul Anka fan is welcome. Just follow the link from my profile.

  64. wad44

    Gracias Sofy

  65. Sofía Ventura София

    Gracias por esa informacion.....Hermosaaaa cancionn Paul por siempre un idolo,heroe....

  66. wad44

    @jnm100kph It happened the same with me, but I kept collecting his songs and at this moment I have almost every officially released song by Paul Anka. Surely you will enjoy many of them on my Multiply website.

  67. jnm100kph

    First time I heard PA was when I was in Grade 4. He was singing Diana. It was love at first "hear". I devoured all his subsequent compositions. On vacation with my aunt in summer of '61, I brought with me my Paul Anka LP (I think it was titled 21 Greatest Hits) and fell in love with "Summer's Gone". I regret having neglected to save my 45s and LPs of Paul Anka. Now I have to scramble for CDs and remixes. Verboten is also a favorite.

  68. wad44

    @ermusngi1 Hi check out my videos, Les Filles De Paris was already uploaded. Thanks for your comment

    @jhvandehey , yes it's the ABC Paramount version, always preferred by me. Those were the days!! We are lucky to lived in those years of true feelings and really talented artists. No doubts, these days there are talented people too, but they are hard to found, great talent nowadays is not enough for success.

  75. CHOLITACHULA

    @wad44 Hi, I agree

  76. wad44

    @maryev1 the answer is simple, that time the music was made by enthusiast talented young people, today is made by computer aided technicians.

  77. wad44

    you are right, but let's hope always for something better

  78. wad44

    an end is the beginning of something new, and that new can be better than what we left behind,

    Summer 1960, senior year coming and I moved from Detroit to Los Angeles. Big mistake. Bright lights and big city not for "Greaseball Jr". I sure miss that old gang of mine(Guys I hung with). I am just a "Blue Collar" Motown kind of fella. Paul Anka said it best. Summer is gone. I wax poetic. Beautiful song and Anka is nothing but great.

  95. felixbautista

    Thanks for posting- this is one of my faves among Paul's ballads

  96. Jose Salame

    Wow! I graduated from high school in the U.S. in 1957 as a foreign student. This song brings back fond memories. My heart pounded again after 51 years remembering my sweet 17 year old girl then. Her name was Karen. If she reads this she'll remember how much we enjoyed it together and will surely know who I am. I wish her the best!!!
