FRIDAYS ARE FOR FRANK: “September Song”
“Oh, it’s a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn’t got time for the waiting game…”
“September Song” is an American pop standard by Kurt Weill, with clever lyrics by Maxwell Anderson that compare a year to a person’s life span from birth to death.
“Oh, It’s a long, long time…”
Frank Sinatra recorded it three times: in July 1946 on a single (Columbia Record 37161) on the album Point of No Return in (1962), and again for September of My Years (1965).
Enjoy the cooler weather.
