Refrain:
These are the Daves I know, I know
These are the Daves I know.
These are the Daves I know, I know
These are the Daves I know.

David Hoffner, he works in my dad's store
He's worked here for 12 years, he'll probably work here four more.

Refrain

Dave Gord, I've known him since I was six
In grade eight he broke his leg, so we got drunk and sick.

Refrain

Some of them are Davids...
"But most of us are Daves"
They all have their own hands
but they come from different moms.

Refrain

Dave Jadisky, man this cat can swing
He weighs almost 50 pounds and he delivers my paper on time.

Refrain

Dave Capisano, I hardly know him...
*pause*

Refrain

Daves: "We are the Daves he knows he knows,
We are the Daves he knows.
We are the Daves he knows he knows,
We are the Daves he knows.
Some of us are Davids, but most of us are Daves.
We all have our own hands but we come from different moms."

These are the Daves I know I know
"We are the Daves he knows he knows"
These are the...
"DAVES!"
