Walkin' along beneath the lights of that miracle mile
Me and Mary makin' our way into the night
You can hear the cries from the carnival rides, the pinball bells and the skee ball slots
Watchin' the summer sun fall out of sight

There’s a warm wind comin' in, from off of the ocean
Makin' its way past the hotel walls to fill the street
Mary is holdin', both of her shoes in her hand
Said she likes to feel the sand beneath her feet

And in the mornin' I’m leavin' makin' my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope, that I will do just fine
And I don’t see, how you could ever be
Anything but mine

There’s a local band playin', at the seaside pavilion
And I got just enough cash to get us in
And as we are dancin', Mary’s wrapping her arms around me
And I can feel the sting of summer on my skin

In the midst of the music, I tell her I love her
And we both laugh, 'cause we know it isn’t true
Oh but Mary there’s a summer drawin' to an end tonight
And there’s so much that I long to do to you

But in the mornin' I’m leaving, makin' my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope, that I will do just fine
And I don’t see, how you could ever be
Anything but mine

And in the mornin' I’m leavin' makin' my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope, that I will do just fine
And I don’t see, how you could ever be
Anything but mine

Mary I don’t see, how you could ever be
Anything but mine

In the mornin' I’m leavin' makin' my way back to Cleveland
So tonight I hope, that I will do just fine
Hey I don’t see, how you could ever be
Anything but mine
