refr.:
Di-di-diana hoe kon ik weten dat je stapel op me was
En dat je al mijn brieven zoveel keren las
k Wist niet beter, want ik was zo groen als gras
Di-di-diana, ik weet niet goed meer wat ik hier nog aan kan doen
Daarom zing ik nu maar dit lied, misschien vergeet je je verdriet

Daar zat ik dan, ik wist niet wat er mij gebeuren zou
De band ging aan het was me wat, ineens daar zag ik jou
Je stelde mij die ene vraag, mijn antwoord dat was nee
Geloof me toch mag ik je graag, al ging ik niet met je mee

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Frans Bauer's song Diana describe the confusion and regret one feels after realizing that someone they were close to had romantic feelings for them but they were oblivious to it at the time. The refrain repeats the name Diana, the person who was interested in the singer, and expresses the singer's surprise and regret that they didn't realize her feelings sooner. The second half of the refrain suggests that the singer is unsure about what to do now and hopes that, perhaps, singing this song will help Diana forget her sadness.


The verses provide some more context for the situation. The singer describes being at some sort of event, perhaps a party or club, where a band is playing. Suddenly, he sees Diana and she asks him a question to which he responds negatively. He later says that he likes her very much, despite not going with her wherever she wanted to go that night. The song ends with another repetition of the refrain, emphasizing the singer's confusion and sadness in the situation.
