In our annual homage to the season, we have included this lovely Latin piece. The happy, upbeat rhythm and melody are easy to read and learn and help reinforce your study of syncopation. The melody begins as a unison line during the verse. At the chorus, the line splits into an optional divisi. If you only wish to use one part there, the top line is the melody.

Some people love fall, especially in places where the autumn foliage explodes into a rhapsody of reds and oranges. Others lament the passing of long, summer days and warm, sunny weather. Some of the poets I read in school equated the coming of autumn, cold weather, and snow with impending death. Interestingly, many English variations of the lyrics exist as loose translations of the original poem. Somehow, the French version sung by Yves Montand has always struck me as darker and sadder. Oh I would like you so much to remember The joyful days when we were friends. At that time, life was more beautiful And the sun burned more than it does today. Fallen leaves can be picked up by the shovelful.
