When I was a young man I wanted to change the world. Now that I am young no longer I want the world to change. When I was just back from serving in Korea I played with a dance band called The Silvertones. One of our most requested numbers from people of the “older generation” was a song called September Song. The old couples would come out on the dance floor and snuggle close. Here is the lyric.
“Oh, it’s a long, long time from May to December
But 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
Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
And these few precious days, I’ll spend with you
These precious days, I’ll spend with you,”
In this busy, troubled world it just might help if we’d all take a time out and snuggle and think about that lyric.
