April Come She Will
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


April, come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain
May, she will stay
Resting in my arms again
June she'll change her tune
In restless walks she'll prowl the night

July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight
August, die she must
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold
September, I remember
A love once new has now grown old

It’s based of The Cuckoo Nursery Rhyme. Simon switched some words in the first phrases and added the Second phrase to each line. Its lyrics use the changing nature of the seasons as a metaphor for a girl's changing moods. The inspiration for the song was a girl that Simon met and the nursery rhyme she used to recite, "Cuckoo".. Paul Simon is a lyrical and musical genius. On of my faves of all time. I was lucky enough the see and hear him perform solo, along with him and Garfunkel. Also, was able to hear and see Garfunkel backed up by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra about 20 years ago. All great times!!

Nursery Rhyme
In April,
Come he will.
In May,
He sings all day.
In June,
He changes his tune.
In July,
He prepares to fly.
In August,
Go he must.

April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;
May, she will stay,
Resting in my arms again.

June, she'll change her tune,
In restless walks she'll prowl the night;
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold;
September I'll remember
A love once new has now grown old.

April, comes she will,
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain.
May, she will stay,
Resting in my arms again.

June, she'll change her tune.
In restless walks she'll prowl the night.
July, she will fly,
And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must.
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold.
September, I'll remember.
A love once new has now grown old.

“I guess I kinda hate most things, but I never really seemed to hate you, so I want to spend the rest of my life with you”

idk if anyone else has this relationship with... life... and music.
but there is a certain level of conscientiousness and depth of consideration present with the extreme excellence of certain musicians and the gifts they give you, that does, indeed, tend to make you irritated with most other crass, superficial, unnuanced, harsh, intrusive, inconsiderate aspects of existence you arte fored to put up with in life (especially social ones).

Its soft perfection invites you to be sensitive so that you can appreciate its uncannily nuanced, detailed, enchanting touch. everything else seems like nails on a chalkboard after communing with such earnest expressions of soul.

(the types of influences I'm talking about are those such as James Tayor, Simon and Gartfunkel (my gosh, Garfunkel's voice leaves my jaw dropped every time I hear him... I usually have to stop chewing if I'm eating))

Gods above, I hate you Ethan. Which of course I mean I love you.

@Toni Zotter I don't mean to be that person on the internet who contradicts everything but I'll throw out my morals to say that I highly doubt that a five month old could have a favourite band. How much music do you listen to to know that your child loves a specific band more than others? I just find it to be a very internet thing to say just to get likes but I am also curious what your child would do when Simon and Garfunkel plays.

Great quote.😉🤍

all simon and garfunkel songs has this certain melancholic sound that makes me nostalgic for an era that was long gone before my time

You can always live again anew the same spirit, if you will, make it live again, certain things are timeless, come and go, but you can bring them back anew in your time

I was probably 6 when they started out but was a big fan from age 14, their music fitted so well with teenage angst and notions of love, such beautiful lyrics and melodies, still fills me with nostalgia, and yes it was a magical time despite the inequality, sexism, awful stereotypical tv programmes!
