The answer is:
Because each line represents:
The first letters of words (plus the punctuation) in the opening line of a song by Swedish pop superstars, ABBA. The number is the year the song was released.

My, my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender = WATERLOO (1974)
They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell = EAGLE (1977)
Oh, you can dance, you can jive = DANCING QUEEN (1976)
You hate, you scream, you swear = ELAINE (1980)
Every day in [the] morning on her way to the office = NINA, PRETTY BALLERINA (1973)
One final step:
