September Song
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


For it's a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
And the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
And I haven't got time for the waiting game

And 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

And 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

I have come to appreciate this song more now that I am entering the September of MY years at the age of 66. Thanks for posting this lovely and poignant song by Mr. Sinatra, the "King of Sing".

Interesting that now many would feel one’s sixties are their September. Back then, this was more in line with one’s forties. That’s a good thing, I think, how our lives have lengthened expectations. I hope your autumn and winter are long and cozy!

Yes…as I age, it rings all the more truer….

Wisdom, somehow, as a protective "mechanism" seems to trick us, only come in flashes throughout our youth (especially if one is handsome and popular) that invincibility was not genetically pre-programmed for us humans who must grow old (those that are "lucky"?) and die..........Actually, the key to a successful old age, as any Buddhist may tell you, is to be as "in the present" as much as we can................but even then there's a lot of caveats in such sayings....

I, too, am 66 and agree totally with you about "the September of our years"!

Mr. Ramfan

The first half is all bravado; the second half all regret and sorrow....

as a professional singer (opera and oratorio) I can, I hope, comment: diction - perfect; musical line - excellent; use od dynamics perfect. What a vocal lesson! And beautiful song, too!
