If you've never heard Kurt Weill's September song, it starts like this:

 

 For it's a long long time between May and December,

but the days grow shorter when it's September!

 

It's a beatiful melonchonic song.

Landslide

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
'Til the landslide brought it down
Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changin' ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older, too
Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older, too
Oh, I'm getting older, too

I wrote a song called "Spring's Training" which seems to usually get a laugh and a nod from audiences. One of the verses goes

Everyday I force myself to walk

I'm drinking protein shakes like a jock

Bulking up around my wastelIne

Oh the jowls on this jawline

Why won't that spring spell work on me

Spring's training

I'm complaining

I'm being cut from the team

It would seem

Eddy Delbridge

"YOUNG AT HEART"  -  sung by Frank Sinatra  -  written by Johnny Richards.  I absolutely love the message of this song and I love the melody!

 

Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you
If you're young at heart


For it's hard, you will find, to be narrow of mind
If you're young at heart

 

You can go to extremes with impossible schemes
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams
And life gets more exciting with each passing day
And love is either in your heart or on your way

 

Don't you know that it's worth every treasure on Earth
To be young at heart


For as rich as you are it's much better by far
To be young at heart

 

And if you should survive to 105
Look at all you'll derive out of being alive
Then here is the best part
You have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart
