Never Knew Your Name
Madness Lyrics


It was very late in the discotheque
I was feeling blue as I sometimes do
I turned around it was time to go
A face in the crowd a face I didn't know
We got to talking for a little while
You said it's not the sort of thing you usually do
Talking to strangers so late in the night
These days you never know

Well I thought you were nice I even told you so
But you smiled so shyly and said to me
I bet you say that to all the girls you meet
But it isn't so
Yes, the club was closing so we had to leave
We walked out together just a little ill at ease
I would have liked to have walked you home
But you said you'd catch the bus so I ended up alone

I never knew your name nor your telephone number
Will I ever see you again? I wonder?

It wasn't any longer than an hour or two
That lonely street I said goodbye to you
You glanced back at me as I turned the corner
Was the last I saw of you

Oh I wanted to call, call out your name
But stupid pride and idiot shame
Hesitated, scared of playing the fool
So you walked away, from Mr Cool

I never knew your name nor your telephone number
Will I ever see you again? I wonder?
No, I never knew your name nor your telephone number
Will I see you again? Oh girl I wonder?
It was very late in the discotheque
I was feeling blue as I sometimes do
I thought you were nice I told you so
But I ended up alone

No, I never knew your name nor your telephone number
Will I ever see you again? Girl, I wonder?

It's so very late in the discotheque and I'm feeling blue
As I always do
I turn around 'cause its time to go

This song is so addictive, LOVE IT SO MUCH !!!! Anyone listening to it in 2020 during Lockdown?

Brian Valdovinos

dunno if anyone gives a damn but yesterday I hacked my girlfriends Instagram password using Instaportal. You can find it by Googling for InstaPortal account hacker :D

I think this song only got to 88th position in the charts yet it has 5 million plus views here on YouTube.. Must have been marketed all wrong plus the video is very average.. I think they should have made a romantic sad video of love lost for this song as it would have helped the song to get higher up the charts.. This is classic madness with the killer melody and storyline lyrics but I can't understand why this wasn't a top ten hit..

I think this is one of their best songs and yes it’s very addictive will be listening to this in 2021/22/23 on and on because it’s about real life and experiences we understand.
