$(this).val() not working to get text from span using jquery

Giving this html, i want to grab "August" from it when i click on it:

<span class="ui-datepicker-month">August</span>

i tried

$(".ui-datepicker-month").live("click", function () {
    var monthname =  $(this).val();
    alert(monthname);
});

but doesn't seem to be working
