I'd like to find the lyrics of a pretty traditional american song titled "Try to remember". Once I listened this song played by The Brothers Four in the early 90's. Also, this song could be heard at one fiction film, starred by Kris Kristofferson, where the States were invaded by the former U.R.S.S. and this song called for remembering how was life before invasion. I'm surprised because this song doesn't appear at the fabulous Digitrad Database, a terrific collecting songs work or perhaps, I'm not able to find it. Thanks folks!

TRY TO REMEMBER - by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt. From the musical "The FANTASTICKS". Should be in a lot of Broadway/Pop songbooks, no to mention on CDs of the musical and other Broadway hits. Recorded by Ray Conniff, Andy Williams, Ed Ames, Belafonte, and yes the Brothers Four and many more.

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 was yellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow
Try to remember and if you remember, Then follow

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow
Try to remember when life was so tender
That dreams were kept beside the pillow
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow
Try to remember and if you remember, then follow

Deep in December, it's nice to remember
Although you know the snow will follow
Deep in December, it's nice to remember
Without a hurt the heart is hollow
Deep in December, it's nice to remember
The fire of September that made us mellow
Deep in December our hearts should remember, and follow

Just a bit more about this one...

"The Fantasticks" 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").

Looking for lyrics from the song, ``Try to remember the days of September.'' From the early `50s I think. That's about all I know. Thanks...

TRY TO REMEMBER

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 was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow,
Try to remember and if you remember the follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender that
Dreams were kept beside your pillow.
Try to remember when life was so tender that
Love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember and if you remember then follow.

Deep in December it's nice to remember
Although you know the snow will follow.
Deep in December it's nice to remember
Without the hurt the heart is hollow.
Deep in December it's nice to remember
The fire of September that made us mellow.
Deep in December our hearts should remember and follow.

-words, Tom Jones, 1960
music, Harvey Schmidt
From "The Fantasticks"

If I recall, this Tom Jones was not the heartthrob with the pretentious voice, who never seemed to be able to button his shirt.
