Hopscotch, skip and run
A playground in the LA sun, I remember
Chapel time, sing a hymn
Swingin’ on the jungle gym, I can see her

Jet black, hair and eyes
First grade held a surprise, for me
What I felt too young to name
But I felt it all the same, for Natalie

Finding Natalie, and tell her of, the place I have in my heart
Finding Natalie, for all the love, I’ve had for her from the start
Finding Natalie, how has she been, so long that we’ve been apart
Finding Natalie, the first to win my heart

Another grade, came and went
Then one more and more she meant, to me
One day, much to my dismay
Her mother asked if I liked Natalie

Pretended not to hear
Though my heart called I ran in fear, oh youth
That year, I would leave
Never to tell Natalie, the truth

Finding Natalie, and tell her of, the place I have in my heart
Finding Natalie, for all the love, I’ve had for her from the start
Finding Natalie, how has she been, so long that we’ve been apart
Finding Natalie, the first to win, my heart

Hey, Hey, Hey!

Never did find Natalie
No second chance for me, to tell her
Lesson learned the hardest way
If my heart calls again one day
I’m gonna answer

Finding Natalie, and tell her of, the place I have in my heart
Finding Natalie, for all the love, I’ve had for her from the start
Finding Natalie, how has she been, so long that we’ve been apart
Finding Natalie, the first to win, my heart

Finding Natalie, and tell her of, the place I have in my heart
Finding Natalie, for all the love, I’ve had for her from the start
Finding Natalie, how has she been, so long that we’ve been apart
Finding Natalie, the first to win, my heart
