Welcome to the September edition of the quiz.

Other than my usual Grim Reaper motif, there are no other themes this time.
The two tie-breakers are peripherally related (a pretty useless hint, I know).

They say he doesn't love me
But they don't know
He makes me feel so happy
When I'm feelin' low

Without going out of your door
You can know all things on earth
Without looking out of your window
You can know the ways of heaven

Gather 'round me, buddies,
Hold your glasses high

Sometimes we quarrel
And maybe we'll fight
But then we make up
The following night

We had a quarrel the other day
And I just let you walk away

Cheetah turns and says "Hey, Boy"
Give me rockin' stuff, man
The kind that makes me go

I'll pay my fare and ride the bumper car
Those funny cars won't make the teardrops start

Like him, I am doubtful
That your love is true
But if you decide to call on me

Turn off the tears, girl
I don't care anymore
You can save all your lies
'Cause I've heard them all before

Well, I never tell him that he is so unfair
'Cause he loves me and I know it
But he's just afraid to show it

Oh, it's easy to say to strangers
That we played a game from the start
It's easy to lie to strangers

And when I told her
Her kisses were not like before

She saves the world
There's no one bolder
She does all this
And never gets any older

Ah, twist them hips (twist them hips)
Let your backbone slip (let your backbone slip)
Now, move your feet (move your feet)
Get on the beat (get on the beat)

I know you're mad
'Cause I was wrong
But that's no reason
To say "so long"

I'm just as blue as a sad old song
Night and day, everything go wrong
There's only one thing left for me to do
Try not to think about you

I tried to take the chance
To feel the thrill of romance and love
And I let my foolish heart become enchanted by starlight above

And Mr. Baker, can you tell us why your secretary had to leave this town?

Didn't you know
It wouldn't be so easy
Letting you go

Come back baby, 'cause I'm all alone
Come back darlin', 'cause I-I need your love
Come back, 'cause I wanna love ya
Girl, I wanna love ya tonight

When you hold me in your arms so tight
You let me know everything's all right

Girl, why should it be
That you don't notice me
Can I dance with you?

Tell me you'll be true
If I should lose you
What could I do?

Now, you step to the left, baby
Step to the right, now

My alibi
Is tellin' people I don't care for you


You're actin' funny
Spendin' all my money
You're out there playin'
Your high-class games

Well, you may go to college
You may go to school
You may have a big Cadillac
But don't you be nobody's fool
