"September" as written by Anders Widmark, Wilhelm Stenhammar and Jens Peter Jacobsen....
La, la, la...
What was the name she gave herself?
They called her September.
She wasn't known for much except
Her legs and her temper.
He had enough money to get a date back in his place
She kept the lights low to avoid his face
He grabbed her arm a little too hard
He was rough when she pulled away
She started running for the stairs
He thought it was all a game
She'd rather die than be abused again
She broke his grip high now on adrenaline

She pulled a pistol from her purse,
Screamed the party was over.
Not the brightest man in the world
He reached for the revolver
She cocked the handle back and put one into his chest
And watched him fall down the stairs to his final rest
She thought it best,
She turned off all the lights and stereo
She sat in the morning breeze and watched the sun glow on the city below
She sang, "La-la-la...."
What was the name she gave herself
They called her September.

    General CommentAt first, I thought this song was about a prostitute, but then I realized, if it was a prostitute, she wouldnt have shot the guy.

    Kind of odd.. The music sounds happy and fairly upbeat.. but then you look at the lyrics. whoah.

    General CommentThis is definitely about a prostitute. The first stanza is pretty clear about this - she has a fake name, he needs money to get a date. When he gets too rough, she pulls a gun to end the date. He gets shot because he comes after her, anyway.

    I do agree with anna, though. It is a very upbeat song with very dark lyrics.
