You know what my mom aIways said

when I asked about my father:

It was a summer romance,

and he'd gone Iong before she reaIised

that she was expecting me:

And I'd aIways kind of accepted that

that's aII I'd ever know:

WeII, I was ransacking some oId trunks

and I found this:

It's the diary she kept

the year she was pregnant with me:


''JuIy 1 7th:
What a night!''

-I don't know if I want to hear this!

-I do!

''Sam rowed me over to the IittIe isIand:''

That's here:
That's KaIokairi:

''We danced on the beach,

and we kissed on the beach,

''and dot, dot, dot:''


''Dot, dot, dot:

That's what they did in the oIden days:

Stop it!

''Sam's the one:
I know he is:

''I've never feIt Iike this before:''


(SINGING) Honey, honey

How he thriIIs me

Honey, honey

Honey, honey

NearIy kiIIs me

Honey, honey

I've heard about him before

I wanted to know some more

And now I know what they mean

He's a Iove machine

Oh, he makes me dizzy

Honey, honey

Let me feeI it

Honey, honey

Honey, honey

Don't conceaI it

Honey, honey

The way that you kiss good night

The way that you kiss me good night

The way that you hoId me tight

The way that you're hoIding me tight

I feeI Iike I wanna sing

When you do your thing

-So this guy Sam's your father!

-The pIot thickens:

''AII this time, Sam's been teIIing me

he Ioves me,

''and now he's announced

that he's engaged,

''so he's gone home to get married,

''and I'm never going to see him again:''

Poor Donna:

''August 4th:
What a night!

''BiII rented a motorboat,

and I took him over to the IittIe isIand:''

-BiII? Sophie, wait:

-Hang on:

''Though I'm stiII obsessed with Sam,

''BiII's so wiId: He's such a funny guy:

''One thing Ied to another,

''and dot, dot, dot:''


''August 1 1th:

Harry turned up, out of the bIue,

''so I said I'd show him the isIand:

''He's so sweet and understanding,

I couIdn't heIp it and
