Lyrics: First verse Ah loves a man who's name is Dan but he's mean as mean can be, He buys things on instalment plan den ""stalls"" them off on me I asked him for a diamond ring a dress and hat as well He said ""no more"" just slammed the door Farewell to Danuel Chorus Dan, Dan, Danuel won't you come home to your babe once mo' I'm waiting honey inn de rain fo' you to come home once again Dan, Dan, Danuel how I love you why no one can tell Why hon, don't leave or else I'll grieve, but comeback to me Danuel Second verse Some black man called and loudly bawled ""yes"" at me with all his might, Says he ""I'll break what I can't take, if you don't pay dis night"" I asked him please to wait for Dan the rest I hates to tell To my surprise in strangedisguise Dat man was Danuel. (Chorus)
