The Summer Knows (3:40)

Cover of What Matters Most Barbra Streisand Sings The Lyrics Of Alan & Marilyn Bergman

From What Matters Most Barbra Streisand Sings The Lyrics Of Alan & Marilyn Bergman and 4 other releases

“The Summer Knows” is composed by multiple Oscar and Grammy Award winner, French composer Michel Legrand, with lyrics by Marilyn and Alan Bergman.

This standard classic is from the 1971 American “coming-of-age” motion-picture, “Summer of ‘42”, a dramatization based on the memoirs of screenwriter Herman Raucher, which tells the story of the author as a boy in his early teens on his 1942 summer vacation on Nantucket Island, off the coast of New England, who embarked on a one-sided romance with a woman whose husband had gone off to fight in World War II.

The film’s soundtrack consists almost entirely of compositions by Legrand, many of which are variants of “The Summer Knows”, the movie’s main theme.

The summer smiles, the summer knows
And unashamed she sheds her clothes
The summer smoothes the restless sky
And lovingly she warms the sand, on which you lie
