"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…
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
