I remember the first time I fell in love
You asked me to go on a spree
Well, I lost my head, completely mad
I thought what will be will be

And then I went to my mama, but she said:
"No, no, 'cause you're still too young to be free"
But we cut and run, with lots of fun,
together, you and me

Those were the days, my love, we're dreaming of,
the memories we share
But now you're back where you belong, so carry on

Let's sing "Hilee Hilay, what a sunny day!"
Now's the time we've been waiting for
Oh baby, you and me on a blue, blue sea, like the summer of '64

Let's sing "Hilee Hilay, what a sunny day!"
Now's the time we've been waiting for
We'll never tell mama, baby, ooh la la, 'bout the summer of '64

I played truant to meet you on summer days
Together we walked in the sun,
and we sailed the sea, oh you and me
We loved to be on the run

Those were the days, my love, we're dreaming of,
the memories we share
But now you're back where you belong, so carry on

Let's sing "Hilee Hilay, what a sunny day!"
Now's the time we've been waiting for
Oh baby, you and me on a blue, blue sea, like the summer of '64

Let's sing "Hilee Hilay, what a sunny day!"
Now's the time we've been waiting for
We'll never tell mama, baby, ooh la la, 'bout the summer of '64

Let's sing "Hilee Hilay, what a sunny day!"
Now's the time we've been waiting for
Well baby, you and me on a blue, blue sea, like the summer of '64
We'll never tell mama, baby, ooh la la, 'bout the summer of '64
