September is the only month never to have been named in any of William Shakespeare’s plays. However this is more than made up for by the number of wonderful poems and songs dedicated to this beautiful month. Late summer turning into autumn winter is clearly a time of inspiration. Below you will find the lyrics from several September themed songs. I’ve given you the names of the writers, can you give me the names of the songs?

“Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh so mellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain so yellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a young and a callow fellow
Try to remember and if you remember
Then follow–follow, oh-oh.”
–  Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt


“I don’t wanna say goodbye for the summer
Knowing the love we’ll miss
Oh let us make a pledge to meet in September
And seal it with a kiss
Guess it’s gonna be a cold lonely summer
But I’ll fill the emptiness
I’ll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss.”
–  Bobby Vinton

“Do you remember how we danced that night away
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way.”
–   Neil Diamond and Gilbert Becaud

“The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall.”
–  Johnny Mercer and Jacques Prévert.
