"Debbie Loves Joey" as written by and Helen Jones....
They met in nineteen-eighty at the school disco
He kissed her for the first time on the last bus home
he said 'you be dirty Harry, I'll be Joey Ramone

She saw shooting stars flash by
The moon exploded in the sky
Her heart flipped when they kissed
Star dust on her lips
Special pact in the dark
Getting pissed in the park
She's in love
She's in love

And when they walked downtown all the people would stare
They used to laugh at her clothes and the color of their hair
She was seventeen and she didn't care
'Cause baby's gonna take her everywhere

'Cause he said they'd live in New York
And the stars would be their own
She was dirty harry and he was Joey Ramone
Yeah he said they'd live in New York
And the stars would be their own
She was dirty harry and he was Joey
He was Joey Ramone

When she met him she was standing in a pure white light
He said do you like the Sex Pistols
Have you got a light?
And all the stars were shining on a perfect saturday night
Holding him tight
Kissing him in the dark
In the back of daddy's car
Have a drink
Have a laugh
Do you want my autograph
No school
Summer's out
Make me wanna twist and shout
Down on the beaches lookin' at the peaches

And when they walked downtown all the people would stare
They used to laugh at her clothes and the color of their hair
She was seventeen and she didn't care
'Cause baby's gonna take her everywhere
'Cause he said they'd live in New York
And the stars would be their own
She was dirty harry and he was Joey Ramone
yeah he said they'd live in New York
And the stars would be their own
She was dirty harry and he was joey
He was Joey Ramone

'Cause he said they'd live in New York
And the stars would be their own
She was dirty harry and he was Joey Ramone
yeah he said they'd live in New York
And the stars would be their own
She was dirty harry and he was Joey
He was Joey Ramone

    General CommentThis song is so cute.

    But it's Debbie Harry (Blondie) not Dirty Harry. Even though it's funnier as Dirty.

    Lyric CorrectionIt's Debbie Harry, not Dirty Harry, which is obvious from
    a)The title
    b)The reference
    c)The song

    General CommentShe met him 1980 in a school disco
    He kissed her for the first time on the last bus home
    He said "You be DEBBIE HARRY, I'll be JOEY RAMONE"

    She saw shooting stars flash by
    The moon exploded in the sky
    Her heart flipped when they kissed
    Star dust on her lips
    Special vat in the dark
    Getting pissed in the park
    She's in love, she's in love

    And when they walked down town all the people would stare
    They used to laugh at her clothes and the colour of her hair
    She was 17 and she didn't care
    ‘Cos baby's gonna take her everywhere

    ‘Cos he said they'd live in New York
    And the stars would be their own
    She was DEBBIE HARRY
    He was JOEY RAMONE

    Yeah he said they'd live in New York
    And the stars would be their own
    ‘Cos she was DEBBIE HARRY
    He was JOEY, he was JOEY RAMONE

    When she met him she was standing in a pure white light
    He said "d'ya like the SEX PISTOLS, have you got a light?"
    And all the stars were shining on a perfect Saturday night
    Holding him tight

    Kissing him in the dark
    In the back of daddys car
    Have a drink have a laugh
    Do you want my autograph
    No school summers out
    Make me wanna twist and shout
    Down on the beaches looking at the peaches

    When they walked down town all the people would stare
    They used to laugh at her clothes and the colour of her hair
    She was 17 and she didn't care
    ‘Cos baby's gonna take her everywhere

    ‘Cos he said they'd live in New York
    And the stars would be their own
    She was DEBBIE HARRY
    He was JOEY RAMONE

    Yeah he said they'd live in New York
    And the stars would be their own
    ‘Cos she was DEBBIE HARRY
    He was JOEY, he was JOEY RAMONE

    ‘Cos he said they'd live in New York
    And the stars would be their own
    She was DEBBIE HARRY
    He was JOEY RAMONE

    Yeah he said they'd live in New York
    And the stars would be their own
    ‘Cos she was DEBBIE HARRY
    He was JOEY, he was JOEY RAMONE
