Try to Remember (Tom Jones & Harvey Schmidt) Try to remember the kind of September When Life was slow & oh so mellow Try... When grass was green & grain was yellow Try... 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 Try... That dreams were kept beside the pillow Try... 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 Deep... Without a hurt the heart is hollow Deep... 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 RB OCT98
