CornerView - September



September Song - Kurt Weill

Oh it’s a long, long while
from May ‘till December
And 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.

For 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.

When you meet with the young men
Early in Spring,
They court you in song and rhyme.
They woo you with songs and a clover ring,
But if you examine the goods they bring,
They have little to offer but the songs they sing
And a plentiful waste of time of day...
And a plentiful waste of time...

But it’s a long, long while
from May ‘till December

When the Autumn weather
Turns the leaves to flame

For 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!

great to have a little treat for the ears, too. i, of course, love nick cave and that farling pj harvey. when i was in school at nyu for musical theatre, we studied weill for part of a semester. it was always so operatic and dramatic and beautiful. you usually just hear three penny opera... this is a nice one!

happy september, daan! big hug!

sanneke zei

Rinke bedacht vanavond ineens waar de benaming 'lange zanger' vandaan kwam. De lange zanger die eerst een franse zanger was. :) Het leidde tot een hele avond lange zanger-filmpjes Youtuben en nu weet ik dus ineens hoe je stem klinkt! En kleine Elvis zag ik! En mini Rover! En jij als bruidje! Zo leuk!
Oh en ik moet zeggen dat ik lange lokken leuk vind staan bij de lange zanger, ik kon het nu nog even vergelijken met kort, en ja, lang is het leukst!

la ninja zei

there there, we may have found ourselves a cv soundtrack?
dankjewel!

malo zei

I heart Nick Cave!

Jeannette zei

Lekkere muziek!
Ik kende al het van Ute Lemper maar deze nog niet. Nick Cave en Elvis Costello die September Songs zingen....de dag kan niet stuk!
Zo, nu eerst eens even op mijn gemak de rest van je blog lezen, ik heb heel wat gemist de afgelopen maanden.
Koffie...blogje...ik is happy! ;)
♥ Jeannette
