Released: 1968

Time, time, time
See what’s become of me
While I looked around for my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hear the Salvation Army band
Down by the riverside’s
Bound to be a better ride
Than what you’ve got planned
Carry your cup in your hand
And look around you
Leaves are brown, now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hang on to your hopes, my friend
That’s an easy thing to say
But if your hopes should pass away
Simply pretend
That you can build them again
Look around
The grass is high
The fields are ripe
It’s the springtime of my life

Seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won’t you stop and remember me
At any convenient time?
Funny how my memory skips
Looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime
I look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
Look around
Leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground
Look around
Leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground

Sometimes I just have to stop the RP stream and let the last tune resonate in my head a bit longer before listening to whatever's next.   Of course, a Play It Again button could help with this problem ;)

One of my faves from these youngsters.

Is it blasphemy to say that I like the Bangles version a lot more?
s'alright dude. I'm with you. Now I knew that S&G wrote this song, but I'd never heard it 'til now. Was that Garfunkle singing? I mean, I'd always imagined it'd be Paul Simon singing that Bangles song, but I thought this was ANOTHER cover of the song until the name and artist popped up...

No. And I agree. So I guess I'll see ya at the torture-fest, eh? :cheers: 8O

I like them both, although I noticed that the Bangles remake leaves out a lyric or two... the "vodka and lime", for instance... :?:

If it is, I'm a blasphemer too. I definitely like their version better.
ok, I am musically impaired: Is this the original? Not the Bangles-version? /me scratches head
All S&G is "godlike." Great selection!

I love Bookends and this is my fave song from it. Listening to my folks tunes via headphones, under the dining room table. Ahhh.
I officially feel totally clueless ---> I had no idea this was Simon & Garfunkel!

Duh. And I thought someone else did the original. What was I thinking. That era is a bit hazy for me some times. :oops:

I find it even more enjoyable that Lionel Ritchie and Stevie Wonder are tagging along on the 'recommended album' list. =)
Damn. Where'd this come from? I've never heard this version. I like it, though. I just love Bill's little surprises.
