Another September Song

Well, the summer’s just about over again once more and soon we’ll be welcoming the new academic year. I thought I’d mark the occasion of the First of September with the same song that I posted this time a couple of years ago. It’s quite a different version, though, this one featuring the luscious velvet voice of  Sarah Vaughan, not to mention the trumpet of Clifford Brown. Here they are with  September Song, by Kurt Weill:

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
And you ain’t got time for the waiting game

Oh the days days dwindle down to a precious few
September November,
And these few golden days I’d share with you
Those golden days I share with you
