Lyrics

Oh, 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 you

And they said that when we grew up
we'd get married, and never split up
Oh, we never did it
Although often I 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
Oh, 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
And Martyn said that you were the best
Oh, the boys all loved you but I was a mess
I had to watch them 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
Oh, 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 2000
Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown
Be there at 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

Do it

Oh yeah
Oh yeah

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 2000
Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown
Be there at 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
Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh

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

Notes on the lyrics

"The fountain down the road" probably refers to the Goodwin Fountain which stood at the end of Fargate in the centre of Sheffield. Anyone wanting to meet there in the year 2000 would have been disappointed because it was demolished by the City Council in 1998 and replaced by a new one in the Peace Gardens.
