Try to Remember

Try to Remember
(Tom Jones & Harvey Schmidt)

Try to remember the kind of September
     When Life was slow & oh so mellow
     When grass was green & grain was yellow
     When you were a tender & callow fellow
Try to remember & if you remember, Then follow
Try to remember when life was so tender
     That no one wept except the willow
     That dreams were kept beside the pillow
     That love was an ember about to billow
Try to remember & if you remember, then follow

Deep in December, it's nice to remember
     Although you know the snow will follow
     Without a hurt the heart is hollow
     The fire of September that made us mellow
Deep in December our hearts should remember, and follow
"Just a bit more about this one...
From "The Fantasticks", an off-Broadway musical that has been playing
in New York since George Washington slept there (actually, since 1960),
and is full of great songs. "Try To Remember" was sung by Jerry Orbach,
who now plays a TV cop (""Law and Order""). RB
