I've Got a Brand New Pair of Roller Skates – Melanie

I rode my bicycle past your window last night
I roller skated to your door at daylight
It almost seems like you're avoiding me
I'm okay alone but you got something I need
Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together
And try them out, you see

I've always thought this was a cute fun novelty song.   My innocence has been shaken a little since finding out that this song is supposed to be 'dirty'.  Beats me… I still don't see it.

If you want to see/hear for yourself, hop on over to this YouTube clip.


  1. I don’t see it either! I’m so happy we are still a bit innocent in this world!

  2. I use to go to the skating ring, every Fri and Sat night. This was on the jukebox playing all the time. Never once thought of it as a dirty song, and in my mind never will. Time does change doesn't it.

  3. I remember this song from years ago, and my husband who was always singing used to sing this from time to time. I don't see the dirty in it either.
