I remember seeing you for the first time
In grade one
You had your hair in pigtails
Mine was cut with a basin
It was Saint Patrick's on the hill
Our parents did enlist
When you first spoke to me
I nearly choked on my jam sandwich

You were the dux and I was the dunce
I thought all my little-lunches
Had come at once

Danielle, Danielle
Our conversations were dictated by the bell

We did the progressive barn dance
At the primary school ball
Armed with two clammy hands and a pair of left feet
I circled the science hall
The chance for me to ask you to be
My friend would soon be gone
By the time I plucked up my courage
I heard a voice say "Pass your partners on"

I'm now inclined to say
That like my asthma, you took my breath away

Danielle, Danielle
My palms were as sweaty as hell

But I guess in those days
You had to be careful of getting girl germs
If a girl tried to hold my hand I'd probably panic
And give her a Chinese burn

And so the years rolled by and didn't seem to stop
Our milk containers were exchanged for bottles of Passion Pop
Our friends would help us drink them down the park in the trees
Our nights at the Railway Hotel are still so clear in my memory

Memory, memory

And I remember your birthday, 21 years
I didn't turn up just because I heard your dad
Was putting on free beer
We gathered there your friends and me to sing
To sing

Danielle, Danielle
We wish you well

21 years, 21 years
