Marty Robbins', "Jolie Girl"
The Lyrics:
Aw, we walked the streets of Greenwich Village,
Holdin' hands like school kids in the summer August sun,
Smilin' at the passing strangers on their way,
And wishin' the end would never come.
Why:
Greenwich Village is a neighborhood in New York City, New York. Incidentally, since the location clearly indicates a setting in the Northern Hemisphere, the reference to "the summer August sun" is a redundancy. In the Northern Hemisphere, summer is the only season in which August can come.
