Album: Different Class (1995, Island Records)


Oh, we were born within an hour of each other,
Our mothers said we could be sister and brother.
Your name is Deborah.
Deborah.
It never suited ya.
And they said that when we grew up,
We'd get married and never split up,
Oh, we never did it,
Although I often thought of it.

Oh, Deborah, do you recall,
Your house was very small,
With woodchip on the wall,
When I came round to call,
You didn't notice me at all.
And I said:

Let's all meet up in the year two thousand.
Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown?
Be there two o'clock by the fountain down the road.
I never knew that you'd get married,
I would be living down here on my own.
I'm not down for a moment.
Thursday, years ago,

You were the first girl at school to get breasts.
Our Marlene said that you were the best.
Oh! The boys all loved you,
but I was a mess.
I had to watch and try and get you undressed.
We were friends, that was as far as it went.
I used to walk you home sometimes but it meant,
Ah, it meant nothing to you,
'Cos you were so popular.

Deborah, do you recall,
Your house was very small,
With Woodchip on the wall,
When I came round to call,
You didn't notice me at all,
And I said:

Let's all meet up in the year two thousand.
Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown?
Be there two o'clock by the fountain down the road.
I never knew that you'd get married,
I would be living down here on my own.
I'm not down for a moment.
Thursday, years ago,

Oh yeah!
Oh yeah!

(spoken bit - not present on version for album "Pulp")


And now it's all over
You've paid your money and you've taken your choice
and I know we'll never meet again
But Deborah, I just wanted you to know I remember every single thing

Oh, Deborah, do you recall,
Your house was very small,
With Woodchip on the wall,
When I came round to call,
You didn't notice me at all.
And I said:

Let's all meet up in the year two thousand.
Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown?
Be there two o'clock by the fountain down the road.
I never knew that you'd get married,
I would be living down here on my own.
I'm not down for a moment.
Thursday, years ago,

What're you doing someday, baby?
Would you like to come and meet me maybe?
You can even bring your baby.
Ooooh___________.
What're you doing someday, baby?
Would you like to come and meet me maybe?
You can even bring your baby.
Ooooh___________.
