i know the face
but i've misplaced the name
along with my car keys 
and that song that goes
la di da di da
you know the one 
c'mon help me out here

hey, how about the time 
we bought apples at the Acme
i couldn't get over how delicious
was it September?
i'm trying to remember
don't all the best apples happen
in September?

your father liked September
back to school with Robert Hall
new jackets
shoes and socks
and don't forget 
pencil cases and book covers
what a damn racket

the cup goes in the cupboard
that's how i remember
neat trick, huh?
i like tricks
just like a kid
otherwise i'd go in circles all day
looking for corners
