edit for headphones. the official 1967 release is mono, source file of this edit is from the album "something else by the kinks" (2011 2cd deluxe edition), listed on cd 2 as "autumn almanac [stereo bonus track]". a #3 hit in the uk, #5 germany, #13 canada, #17 in (shame on) holland. oh, and #73 in some part of the world, think it’s the united somewhat of somewhere... why should it have reached a higher position anyway, as some have placed this and other davies compositions in the pastoral-romantic tradition of the poetry of wordsworth, among others...

the album stereo version is ten seconds longer the the official mono single release and features more "psychedelic" audio effects such as a tape loop during the fadeout. well, those ten seconds are caused by an eight seconds silence at the end of the song, reason why i extended the intro from two to eight seconds, just for peace’s sake...

ray davies said the song was inspired by a local hunch-backed gardener in his native muswell hill neighbourhood of north london.

AUTUMN ALMANAC
(Ray Davies)

From the dew-soaked hedge creeps a crawly caterpillar,
When the dawn begins to crack.
It’s all part of my autumn almanac.
Breeze blows leaves of a musty-coloured yellow,
So I sweep them in my sack.
Yes, yes, yes, it’s my autumn almanac.

Friday evenings, people get together,
Hiding from the weather.
Tea and toasted, buttered currant buns
Can’t compensate for lack of sun,
Because the summer’s all gone.

La-la-la-la
Oh, my poor rheumatic back
Yes, yes, yes, it’s my autumn almanac.
La-la-la-la
Oh, my autumn almanac
Yes, yes, yes, it’s my autumn almanac.

I like my football on a Saturday,
Roast beef on Sundays, all right.
I go to Blackpool for my holidays,
Sit in the open sunlight.

This is my street, and I’m never gonna to leave it,
And I’m always gonna to stay here
If I live to be ninety-nine,
’Cause all the people I meet
Seem to come from my street
And I can’t get away,
Because it’s calling me, (come on home)
Hear it calling me, (come on home)

La-la-la-la
Oh, my autumn Armagnac
Yes, yes, yes, it’s my autumn almanac.
La-la-la-la
Oh, my autumn almanac
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

Bop-bop-bopm-bop-bop, whoa!
Bop-bop-bopm-bop-bop, whoa!
