Music & Lyrics: "Time of the Season" by The Zombies (Odessey and Oracle, 1968)

 

 

The Zombies




~~*~~



It's the time of the season
When love runs high
In this time
Give it to me easy
And let me try with pleasured hands

To take you in the sun
To promised lands
To show you every one
It's the time of the season for loving

What's your name?
Who's your daddy?
Is he rich like me?
Has he taken
Any time
To show you what you need to live?

Tell it to me slowly
Tell you what
I really want to know
It's the time of the season for loving

What's your name?
Who's your daddy?
Is he rich like me?
Has he taken any time
To show you what you need to live?

Tell it to me slowly
Tell you what
I really want to know
It's the time of the season for loving


~~*~~
This timeless classic has been on my radar
since I first heard it more than half a century ago.
It's sexy, counterculture, rebellious,
flirtatious, and evokes
powerful memories for me,
but ones rooted between reality
and imagination,
between hoped-for outcomes
and realized summers
"when love ran high."
It is indeed
the time of the season.
