  • Well we were born within one 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
    We never did it, although often I thought of it

    Oh Deborah, do you recall?
    Your house was very small
    With wood chip on the wall
    When I came around to call
    You didn't notice me at all

    And I said let's all meet up in the year 2000
    Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown
    Be there 2 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
    On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago

    You were the first girl at school to get breasts
    Martyn said that you were the best
    The boys all loved you, but I was a mess
    I had to watch them trying to get you undressed
    We were friends, that was as far as it went
    I used to walk you home sometimes but it meant
    Oh, it meant nothing to you,
    'Cause you were so popular

    Deborah do you recall?
    Your house was very small
    With woodchip on the wall
    When I came around to call
    You didn't notice me at all

    I said let's all meet up in the year 2000
    Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown
    Be there 2 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
    On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago

    Oh yeah,
    Oh yeah

    Ah do you recall?
    Your house was very small
    With wood chip on the wall
    When I came around to call
    You didn't notice me at all

    And I said let's all meet up in the year 2000
    Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown
    Be there 2 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
    On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago

    Oh what are you doing Sunday baby
    Would you like to come and meet me maybe?
    You can even bring your baby
    Ohhh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh ooh
    What are you doing Sunday baby
    Would you like to come and meet me maybe?
    You can even bring your baby
    Ooh ooh oh Ooh ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh ooh Ooh
