Oh, You September Morn

Sheet music and lyrics for the song, "Oh, You September Morn," from the Musical "September Morn." Music by Aubrey Stauffer and lyrics Arthur Gillespie.

VERSE:

There's a girlie caused a sensation,
Lately she's become the rage
She is known to every nation,
Now we've got her on the stage,

She don't care a bit for style,
In the Spring or Fall,
All she wears is just a smile,
Nothing else at all!

CHORUS:

Oh you beautiful September Morn,
Oh come love me, I'm all forlorn,
Oh I want to call you mine,
You splash me and I'll splash you, the water is fine!
No use waiting for a silv'ry moon,
If we're going to hug and kiss and spoon,
Be my little Venus, I'll be your Adonis,
Leaders of the fashion will have nothing on us,
Oh you September Morn.

VERSE:

When you came you had us all guessing,
Ev'ryone began to stare
But we soon were all confessing,
We could "see you" ev'rywhere,

Won't you take a chance with me?
Hear that music play!
Won't you come and dance with me,
A la cabaret?
