The lyrics begin:

Do you remember, the 21st night of September
Love was changing the minds
Pretender, while chasing the clouds away
Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing
As we danced in the night,
Remember how the stars stole the night away
Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya- never was a cloudy day
