Do You Remember Dancing In September?

Whenever I hear the song September by Earth, Wind and Fire, I can’t help but sing along!  That groovy song raises my spirits and just makes me feel like dancing!

But do you know the lyrics?  I looked them up along with the youtube video because I realized I really didn’t know them.  It came out in 1978 – such a long time ago.  But for me, there’s something in this song that makes me come alive when I hear it!  Come on!  Get up and dance with me because it’s the 21st Night of September!

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
Hey hey hey
Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day
Ba duda, ba duda, ba duda, badu
Ba duda, badu, ba duda, badu
Ba duda, badu, ba duda
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
Hey hey hey
Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day
There was a
Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, golden dreams were shiny days
The bell was ringing
Our souls were singing
Do you remember, never a cloudy day
There was a
Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, never was a cloudy day
There was a
Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, golden dreams were shiny 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

    Since I am very much a mover when it comes to music, there is absolutely zero way I would be able to sit still through this (and probably thousands of others as well). I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had impromptu dance parties here when I’ve been listening to a particularly good song. This one fits in nicely to all I’ve been listening to today!
