Lyrics
If ever I would leave you, it wouldn’t be in summer
Seeing you in summer, I never would go
Your hair streaked with sunlight, your arms red as flame
Your face with a luster that puts gold to shame

And if I’d ever leave you, it couldn’t be in autumn
Just how I’d leave in autumn, I never, never would know
I’ve seen how you sparkle when fall nips the air
I know you in autumn and I must be there

Oh would I leave you running merrily, merrily, merrily through the snow?
Or on a wintry evening when you catch the fire’s glow?

If ever I would leave you, it wouldn’t be in springtime
Knowing how in springtime I’m bewitched, bewitched, bewitched by you so
Oh, no, no, not in springtime, summer, winter, or fall
If ever I would leave, leave you at all

Català – Si Mai Et Deixés
Si mai et deixés, no seria a l’estiu
En veure’t  a l’estiu, mai me n’aniria
Els teus cabells envetats pel sol, els teus braços vermells com el foc
La teva cara amb una brillantor que avergonyeix l’or

I si mai et deixés, no podria ser a la tardor
Com podria marxar a la tardor, mai, mai ho sabré
He vist com brilles quan la tardor pessiga l’aire
Sé com ets a la tardor i he de ser-hi

Oh, et deixaria corrent alegrement, alegrement, alegrement a través de la neu?
O en una tarda d’hivern quan agafes la resplendor del foc?

Si mai et deixés, no seria a la primavera
Sabent com a la primavera estic encisada, encisada, encisada per tu, per tant
Oh, no, no, no seria a la primavera, estiu, hivern o tardor
Si mai et deixès, deixès per sempre
