My name is Double Danny and
I always do things twice.
I’m completely double-jointed
and I’m double doggone nice.

When I see a double feature,
I prefer to double date.
I arrive there double early
and I leave there double late.

I like double talking, double-time,
and doing double takes.
I wear double-breasted jackets,
and eat double-layered cakes.

When it comes to doing homework though,
I’m not a double dunce.
For I’ve got a double standard,
and I only do it once.
