About Maybe September
“Maybe September” is from the only movie that Tony Bennett acted in (so far), The Oscar, where he played the good guy, an agent named Hymie Kelly. While the film received mixed reviews, this song is terrific and is beautifully sung by Tony Bennett.

Lyrics

Maybe September
I’ll love again
Maybe a rainbow
Will catch me then
This little boy lost
Will find his way once more
Just like before
When lips were tender

The shade of a willow
Where love was born
A face on a pillow
In early morn
I still see that golden world
In all it’s splendor
Maybe September
Love will come again

A taller tree, a sweeter log
A bluer morning sky above
And maybe come September
I’ll share these wonders
With my love
