Science fact: You cannot possibly get sick of 'September' by Earth, Wind and Fire

Posted By on Wed, Sep 9, 2015 at 11:38 AM

We've all heard this song hundreds of thousands of times. And does it still sound awesome? Damn right, it does. This is one earworm you won't mind bouncing around inside your skull for days on end, or even twenty-one more days, when the month ends. (It sure beats that emo Big Star song all your friends posted on their Facebook feeds last week, sheesh.)
Bonus for you — here are the lyrics to the song. That's right — there are actual words to it aside from "Do you remember, dancing in September, blah blah bawwwdeaa deee all deeeyall deee yayyyyyy."

These come straight from Google, so they have to be legit:



Do you remember the 21st night of September?
Love was changing the minds of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away

Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing.
As we danced in the night,
Remember how the stars stole the night away

Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day

Ba de ya de ya de ya
Ba de ya de ya de ya
Ba de ya de ya de ya de ya

My thoughts are with you
Holding hands with your heart to see you
Only blue talk and love,
Remember how we knew love was here to stay

Now December found the love that we shared in September.
Only blue talk and love,
Remember the true love we share today

Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day

Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, golden dreams were shinny days

Love bells was ringing
Our souls were singing
Do you remember, never a cloudy day

Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day

Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, golden dreams were shinny days

Ba de ya de ya de ya
Ba de ya de ya de ya
Ba de ya de ya de ya de ya

Ba de ya de ya de ya
Ba de ya de ya de ya
Ba de ya de ya de ya de ya
