09/02/17 - NNHS Newsletter - September Song

“Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling.”

William Wordsworth, September
(07 April 1770 - 23 April 1850)

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_Song:

"September Song" is an American pop standard composed by Kurt Weill, with lyrics by Maxwell Anderson. It was introduced by Walter Huston in the 1938 Broadway musical Knickerbocker Holiday, which enjoyed only moderate success and closed after six months. The song has since been recorded by numerous singers and instrumentalists. It was used in the 1950 film September Affair, and the popularity of the film caused Huston's recording to hit the top of the 1950 hit parade.[1] It was used as the music for the credits in the television series May to December (a quote from the opening line of the song).

It originated from Walter Huston's request that he should have one solo song in Knickerbocker Holiday, if he was going to play the role of the aged dictator Peter Stuyvesant. Anderson and Weill wrote the song specifically for Huston's gruff voice and limited vocal range, in a couple of hours.[2] The musical closed in April 1939 after six months, but the song quickly became established as a modern standard.....

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 09/01/17:

Wife’s dairy: We had plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping all day with my friends. Later he was acting weird. I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late. He was silent at the restaurant too and didn’t eat much. While going to bed, he was looking serious. I quietly lied down. I felt that his thoughts were somewhere else. I had lost him. What to do now?

Husband’s diary: My car didn’t start this morning. Wondering what could have happened to it. Had nice dinner with the wife.

September Song

Music by Kurt Weill, 1938
(02 Mar 1900 - 03 Apr 1950)

Lyrics by
Maxwell Anderson
(15 Dec 1888 - 28 Feb 1959)

 

When I was a young man courting the girls
I played me a waiting game
If a maid refused me with tossing curls
I'd let the old Earth make a couple of whirls
While I plied her with tears in lieu of pearls
And as time came around she came my way
As time came around, she came

When you meet with the young girls early in the Spring
You court them in song and rhyme
They answer with words and a clover ring
But if you could examine the goods they bring
They have little to offer but the songs they sing
And the plentiful waste of time of day
A plentiful waste of time

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

Oh, the days dwindle down
To a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days
I'll spend with you
These precious days
I'll spend with you
