Welcome to the September back-to-school edition of the quiz.  (Maybe it's just
me, but those back-to-school ads still inspire dread, decades after my
formal education ended!)

A couple of minor themes are embedded this time around.  Enjoy!

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing forever more
You are all that I long for
All I worship and adore

But every now and then, I feel so insecure
I know that I just need you like
I've never done before

My darling, if this is goodbye
I just know I'm gonna cry

There's a girl in my heart
Whose heart I've stolen

I know that I
Meant every sigh
When you hugged me the way you hugged me
And you kissed me the way you kissed me

It's that itchy-twitchy feeling that I have inside
Something overwhelming that I just can't hide
I wanna know, woh yeah, woh tell me

It's just the way the stars shine
And it really isn't love at all

Under the trees, out where it's breezy
Nobody here but me and you
We'll do the things we've meant to do
Sit back, relax, and take it easy

Never thought I'd find a girl like you
Now I have, I know I'll never be blue

I told you he was a fool
He'll break your heart
He'll tear it apart
So you better get smart

Always you, always me
Won't you take me along to be with you

Church full of singing, out of tune

But every time I see them, I pray
And if my prayer can cross the sea

And if you're quick enough to rise
You'll catch the fleeting glimpse of someone's fading shadow

Baby, yes, I need your love
But I'm not gonna get this low
Don't you think that I can tell
When you've got no place else to go

First, it's up
And then it's down
It changes so fast
Never hits the ground

The kind of a man the West would need
To tame a troubled land

Just won't let me be
Wake up restless nights
Lord, and I can't even sleep

Times that are happy are times that are few
And once I was happy when I had you
The days have come and gone since you were here
Nights are twice as long without you near

And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothing seems to fit

When you find your fascination in the arms of other guys
You must know my reputation comes to nothing in their eyes
Still you take off in a hurry anytime it pleases you
And you only start to worry when I say I'm leaving you

Please say you'll be mine
Love me or leave me
I'll go out of my mind

Warmer than May, her tender sighs
Love was ours

I can hardly wait for the day when we say "I do"
It's a day I've dreamed of so long, now it's coming true

There's a certain sound
Always follows me around
When you're close to me
You will hear it


Uh oh, uh oh, I gotta turn the corner, man!
Gotta turn the corner!

I woke up last night
Half past four
Fifteen women knockin' at my door
