Hazy Shade of Winter Lyrics

      While the number of hits on my blog for the MMBT's "The Impression That I Get" is impressive, I've also been getting a number of people searching for the lyrics to A Hazy Shade of Winter.   (But they don't seem to know that's the title... I've seen leaves are brown and time time time see what's become of me.)

     The song was done originally by Simon and Garfunkel and was redone in the 80s by the Bangles.   To help those searchers out, here are the lyrics:

Time, time, time, see whats 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, its bound to be a better ride
Than what youve got planned
Carry your cup in your hand
And look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hang on to your hopes, my friend
Thats 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, its the springtime of my life

Ahhh, seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Wont you stop and remember me
At any convenient time
Funny how my memory slips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime

But look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Look around, leaves are brown
Theres a patch of snow on the ground...

I get hits from folks looking for poetry. For whatever reason, I get people looking for Khubla Khan several times a week. Who knew Coleridge would be so popular?

Thanks for posting the lyrics to that gorgeous song.
