I've been looking for this song too, its impossible to find! I really liked it in Junior High... More Lyrics



She's hanging her clothes on the line,....laying by the river. She's got him on her mind, it's making her shiver. Summer didn't last that long....

I have been looking as well, thanks for the answer! I can add some of the lyrics:



She's hanging her clothes on the line

He's laying by the river

He still got her on his mind (I think!)

It's makin' him shiver

Summer days don't last that long

But now it's September

And you must remember to leave the porch light on.



Boys will be boys

But whatever happened to the boys of autumn?

Boys will be boys

But you must remember to leave the porch light on.



That's it, I can't remember the rest. I hope this helps

I l o v e this song... One of the best forgotten songs out there.

Was able to put together s o m e lyrics, not sure if exact though, will appreciate if someone improves on them:



She's hanging the clothes on the line

You're laying by the river

You've still got THEM {clothes, possibly underwear!;)} on your mind

It's making you shiver



The summer didn't last that long

Cos now it's September

But you must remember leave the porch light on



Boys will be boys

But whatever happens to the boys of autumn

Boys will be boys

And you won't forget those boys of autumn



You painted the leaves in July

That's when you had a reason

Now you watch as they fall from the sky

They're touching down for the season



{The next stanza is where I'm getting tripped over:}



Deep inside you always realize

What you saw was never ???in your eyes???

But you can't ???begin???. Those ???hard lessons last???



Boys will be boys

But whatever happens to the boys of autumn

Boys will be boys

And you won't forget those boys of autumn



As you get a little longer

It gets a little colder

But when the winter's over

They become the boys of summer again
