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

"Try to Remember" is a song from the musical comedy The Fantasticks. It is the first song sung in the show, to get the audience to imagine what the sparse set suggests. Its lyrics, written by Tom Jones, famously rhyme "remember" with "September", "so tender", and "December", and repeat the sequence llow throughout the song: verse 1 contains "mellow", "yellow", and "callow fellow"; verse 2 contains "willow", "pillow", "billow"; verse 3 contains "follow", "hollow", "mellow"; and all verses end with "follow". Harvey Schmidt composed the music.

"Try to Remember" was originally sung by Jerry Orbach in the Original Off-Broadway production of The Fantasticks. "Try To Remember" made the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart three times in 1965 in versions by Ed Ames, Roger Williams and The Brothers Four.....

Try to Remember

Music by
Harvey Schmidt (b. 12 Sept 1929)

Lyrics by Tom Jones (b. 1928)

- The Fantasticks, 1960


Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow.

Try to remember and if you remember, then follow,
(echo) Follow, follow, follow, follow
Follow, follow, follow, follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That dreams were kept beside your pillow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow.

Try to remember and if you remember, then follow,
(echo) Follow, follow, follow, follow
Follow, follow, follow, follow.

Deep in December it's nice to remember it's nice
To remember altho' you know the snow will follow.
Deep in December it's nice to remember it's nice
To remember without a hurt the heart is hollow.
Deep in December it's nice to remember
The fire of September that made use mellow.

Try to remember and if you remember, then follow,
(echo) Follow, follow, follow, follow
Follow, follow, follow, follow.


Thanks to T. Roberts (marmoht@bellsouth.net)
