"I Saw Her Standing There" from her point of view.

Well she was just seventeen
You know what I mean

I was only seventeen! He was, like, twenty one! Perv.

And the way she looked
Was way beyond compare

I was wearing my new top from H&M. It's really cute, and it was only fifteen quid.

So how could I dance with another,
Oh, when I saw her standing there

I didn't really think much of it to begin with, I mean I could tell he was there, out of the corner of my eye, and now that I think about it, yeh, he didn't dance with anyone.

Well she looked at me

It was like, you know when ya know you shouldn't look, but you do? It was like that. Shelley was off dancing with Dave, and Kim was in the loo. And I just kinda looked over.

And I, I could see
That before too long
I'd fall in love with her

And he was just there with this gormless look on his face.

She wouldn't dance with another
Oh, when I saw her standing there

I was just praying that Shelley or Kim would come back.

Well my heart went boom
When I crossed that room

Then he just started coming over towards me. It was a nightmare.

And I held her hand in mine

And he just grabbed my hand! I was like, what the fuck!?

Oh we danced through the night

If he says we danced, he's a liar; it was more like we struggled. Man, he's so weird.

And we held each other tight

He was just grabbing at me.

And before too long

I kneed him in the balls, and went off to find Shelley and Kim.

I fell in love with her

They'd gone outside for a fag.

Now I'll never dance with another

We went down to the offy to get some vodka.

Oh, when I saw her standing there

I'm so telling everyone; he's such a bloody freak.
