I downloaded the PDF, but alas it disappeared---or something. (edit: this time it worked. It's at bottom)

It was my very first real song with lyric, and 'Fatha' Francis Reilly contributed perhaps 3 strong lines.

Here's the lyric:


NOT A BAD NOVEMBER By Joel Fass
(c) 2003 Exemplar (ASCAP)

Verse (rubato):

When September leaves her chill
Though it be a bitter pill
Never curse September, or the luck you've got
For when new love comes one day
That's the time for us to say:
'It's not over---and there's one more thing it's not':

(Ballad tempo)
A1:
It's not a bad November
After that chill in early Fall
No, it's not a bad November---at all

A2:
It was a dreary, dark September
(S)he left, and I heard winter's call
around the bend---the end---December
What a Fall!

B:
October came with greener view
Bringing promise, bringing you
We found love
And a song our hearts could sing

Now it's November, all is new
I have found my strength in you
When we love---we turn
Autumn into Spring

C:
All told, it's
Not a bad November
in fact since you came my way
It's May---each day's our first

So come on in, December
Do your worst! (2nd x: to coda)

(Instr. solo from 'Now it's November...';vcl. re-entry at: 'All told, it's...'

Coda (over repeated instr. figure):

November
November!
