"September Girls" as written by and Alex Chilton....
September girls
Do so much
And for so long
'Til we touched
I love you, boy
Never mind
I've been crying
All the time
December boys got it bad
December boys got it bad
September girls
I don't know why
How can I deny
What's inside
Even though I
Keep away
They will love
All our days
December boys got it bad
December boys got it bad
When I get to bed
Late at night
That's the time he
Makes things right
Ooh when he makes
Love to me

    General CommentThis is spelled incorrectly. It is Gurls, not Girls. The Bangles did this one well. Sometimes I can't decide whether I prefer Big Star's original ramshackle version or the Bangles' more polished version. They're both good.

    The Bangles, of course, had to change all of the "gurls" (except for the title song phrase) to "boys" here. And "I was your butch" morphed into "And for so long."

    My InterpretationAs the Bangles sang it: It's about an affair with an older man... I could read more into it - but I'll leave that up to everyone else to savor. A typical Bangles spin on the May-December kind of romance..only they're September girls!
