Today's song/'Tis Autumn

Old Father Time checked, so there'd be no doubt,
Called on the north wind to come on out,
Then cupped his hands, so proudly to shout,
"La-de-da, de-da-de-dum, 'tis Autumn!".

The trees say they're tired, they've born too much fruit,
Charmed all the wayside, there's no dispute,
Now shedding leaves, they don't give a hoot!
La-de-da, de-da-de-dum, 'tis Autumn!

Then the birds got together
To chirp about the weather,
After makin' their decision
With birdie-like precision,
Turned about and made a bee-line to the south.

My holding you close really is no crime,
Ask the birds, the trees, and Old Father Time,
It's just to help the mercury climb,
La-de-da, de-da-de-dum, 'tis Autumn!

It's just to help the mercury climb,
La-de-da, de-da-de-dum, 'tis Autumn!

  1. What a beautiful song. I have never heard it before. I had forgotten what a handsome voice Mr Cole had. It wraps you with warmth. Happy Autumn!!

    1. And to you! I do love Nat King Cole. I would say, The Very Thought of You is my most favorite.

  2. Ummm...yes...autumn is here - with a wink from me. Autumn is very much NOT here in our area. Still temps in the high 90's. Sigh. One day...

    1. When I hear about weather in other parts of the US, I think how very vast this country is. Every single area is different.
