One More September (to "Voi Che Sapete")
Saturday, September 25, 2004

One more September
One more lovely fall
The end of the vegetables
The start of football

Trees are turning Van Gogh colors
Here in St. Paul
Along the boulevards
People rake their leaves

Pack up lawn ornaments
Flamingoes and swans
Romantic evenings
Mon amour bon soir

A faint blue haze drifts by
The neighbors cigar
Orange and yellows shine among the green
Spirits in the bushes waiting for Halloween

This song is Mozart's
So graceful to our ears
He was Bergdorf Goodman
I am Sears

When he was my age
He had been dead twenty years
Nice to be a genius
But I'd rather be with you my dear.
