Lyrics

Head in the clouds
And a mouth full of pie
Head in a blouse
Everybody loves him
I see why

Dagenham Dave, Dagenham Dave
Oh, Dagenham Dave
Dagenham Dave, Dagenham Dave
Oh, Dagenham Dave

I love Karen, I love Sharon
On the window screen
With never the need to fight
Or to question
A single thing

Dagenham Dave, Dagenham Dave
Oh, Dagenham Dave
Dagenham Dave, Dagenham Dave
Oh, Dagenham Dave

Dagenham Dave, Dagenham Dave
Oh, Dagenham Dave
Dagenham Dave, Dagenham Dave
Dagenham Dave

He'd love to touch
He's afraid that he might self-combust
I could say more
But you get the general idea

Dagenham Dave
Dagenham Dave

"Dagenham Dave" is a song by Morrissey, released as a single in August 1995, a week prior to the release of Southpaw Grammar. It was Morrissey's first release on RCA, the label he had signed to after leaving EMI. This was the second Morrissey solo single not to feature the singer on the cover, instead English football coach and former player Terry Venables is pictured sticking out his tongue. Venables was born in Dagenham.The promotional video for the single featured former Grange Hill actor Mark Savage as the titular Dave.The single reached number 26 on the UK Singles Chart.It is not related to the song of the same name by The Stranglers, from their 1977 album No More Heroes. "Dagenham Dave" is also naval slang for someone who is somewhat unstable or crazy, Dagenham being close to Barking ("barking mad").
