Happy Leyendecker Baby New Year 2008!

J.C. Leyendecker New Years Babies Saturday Evening Post Covers
As I mentioned in my Happy Leyendecker Baby New Year! post from last year, master illustrator J.C. Leyendecker is responsible for initiating the tradition of representing the New Year visually as a baby.

Here are a few more of his wonderful New Years babies from the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. Their archive is here and here.

Happy New Year!

    It’ll Never Be the Same Old Lang Syne

    It’ll Never be the same Auld Lang Syne

    the paper said that you were dead
    that you had slipped away
    and the snow that fell upon the pages
    soon “turned into rain”

    chorus:
    and I realized
    it would never be the Same Auld Lang Syne
    and I realized
    that every year
    you’ll be missed
    and Christmastime

    December 19th
    just a day
    before my Starbucks show
    I heard the news
    and wrote this song
    about the songs you sewed
    your tender songs
    were sewn into our hearts
    and in our souls
    and Auld Lang Syne
    won’t be the same
    without your rock n roll

    and I realized
    it would never be the Same Auld Lang Syne
    and I realized
    that every year
    you’ll be missed
    and Christmastime

    time slips away
    and so did you
    you slipped away too soon
    and every year at Christmastime
    we’ll sing your Christmas tune

    and I realized
    it would never be the Same Auld Lang Syne
    and I realized
    that every year
    you’ll be missed
    and Christmastime
