Autumn Leaves : Sunday Standard

Originally a french song. ‘Les Feuilles Mortes’ or as we know it: Autumn Leaves, has been a staples in the jazz songbook. Here is our take … at least one of them ;)


English Lyric (by Johnny Mercer):

Composer: Jacques Prevert

The falling leaves

Drift by my window

The autumn leaves

of red and gold

I see your lips

the summer kisses

the sunburned hands

I used to hold

Since you went away

the days grow long

and soon I'll hear

old winter song

but I miss you most of all

my darling

when autumn leaves start to fall
