Our kingdom’s gonna be this little patch of green

Well, the sun’s not so hot in the sky today
And you know I can see summertime slipping on away
A few more geese are gone, a few more leaves turning red
But the grass is as soft as a feather in a featherbed
So I’ll be king and you’ll be queen
Our kingdom’s gonna be this little patch of green

Won’t you lie down here right now
In this September grass
Won’t you lie down with me now
September grass.

Oh the memory is like the sweetest pain
Yeah, I kissed the girl at a football game
I can still smell the sweat and the grass stains
We walked home together. I was never the same.

But that was a long time ago
And where is she now? I don’t know

Won’t you lie down here right now
In this September grass
Won’t you lie down with me now
September grass…

~ James Taylor, from “September Grass” (Album “October Road” 2002)

  5. Yesterday, our September grass got mowed – the first time since (probably) early July – it also has rained today the first time after a looooong dry spell over the past months. Not my style of music but kinda liked this song very much. Made me smile and sneeze 🙂

  7. Such a great representation of right now. I’ve always loved his voice; you know, he could sing the phone book (if we still used such ‘things’) and I’d be happy. Cher xo
