Tomorrow when you wake up and you don't remember how this feels,
Just remember that our deal is still intact.
'Cause I know that you won't forget,
And you know I'm a Virgo, don't you know.
And I'm a dog and I can't let it go-go-go.
So some day when you wake up, and you want to try, and make it fact,
Skip September, boy, and go get in the act.
I'm trying to touch that sound. Its buzzing without a ground.
One-hundred and fifty-five pounds.
And every Fall I get down with my knees on the ground,
The Untouchable sound is one year older.
And every September, Lord I remember how to get it together when I'm over.
I'm trying to touch that sound. It's nothing without a ground.
One-hundred and forty-nine pounds.

    General CommentI don't want to get very into examining the song, but I do know Ted Leo was born on September 11th, and he mentions September and being a Virgo (Dog) a lot in this song.
