The Rest of Your Life
The new year is about to begin and it is time to ask the important question:
What are you doing the rest of your life
North and South and
East and West of your life
I have only one request of your life
All the seasons and the times of your days
Are the nickels and the dimes of your days
Let the reasons and the rhymes of your days
Through all of my life
Summer, winter, spring and fall of my life
All I ever will recall of my life
Is all my life with you

The lyrics were by the prolific team of Marilyn and Alan Bergman. Music was by Michel Legrand. In 1973 Legrand won a Grammy for the Musical Arrangement of the song for the vocal by Sarah Vaughan, second above.
Remember Playboy After Dark? Legrand performed his composition with Hugh Hefner and other stars looking on. Of the three above, who performed it best?
