    Lyrics:

    It was Christmas Eve, babe
    In the drunk tank
    An old man said to me
    Won't see another one
    And then he sang a song
    'The Rare Old Mountain Dew'
    I turned my face away
    And dreamed about you

    Got on a lucky one
    Came in eighteen-to-one
    I've got a feeling
    This year's for me and you
    So, Happy Christmas
    I love you, baby
    I can see a better time
    When all our dreams come true

    They've got cars big as bars
    They've got rivers of gold
    But the wind goes right through you;
    It's no place for the old
    When you first took my hand
    On a cold Christmas Eve
    You promised me Broadway
    Was waiting for me

    You were handsome! You were pretty
    Queen of New York City
    When the band finished playing
    They howled out for more
    Sinatra was swinging
    All the drunks, they were singing
    We kissed on a corner
    Then danced through the night

    The boys of the NYPD choir
    Were singing 'Galway Bay'
    And the bells were ringing out
    For Christmas day

    You're a bum, you're a punk
    You're an old slut on junk
    Lying there almost dead
    On a drip in that bed
    You scumbag, you maggot
    You cheap lousy faggot
    Happy Christmas, your arse
    I pray God it's our last

    The boys of the NYPD choir
    Still singing Galway Bay
    And the bells are ringing out
    For Christmas day

    I could have been someone
    Well, so could anyone
    You took my dreams from me
    When I first found you
    I kept them with me, babe
    I put them with my own
    Can't make it all alone
    I've built my dreams around you

    The boys of the NYPD choir
    Still singing Galway Bay
    And the bells are ringing out
    For Christmas day

    Music Video with Lyrics attached.

    Lyrics:-

    I met my love by the gas works wall
    Dreamed a dream by the old canal
    I kissed my girl by the factory wall
    Dirty old town
    Dirty old town
    Clouds a drifting across the moon
    Cats a prowling on their beat
    Spring's a girl in the street at night
    Dirty old town
    Dirty old town
    Heard a siren from the docks
    Saw a train set the night on fire
    Smelled the spring on the smokey wind
    Dirty old town
    Dirty old town
    I'm going to make a good sharp axe
    Shining steel tempered in the fire
    Will chop you down like an old dead tree
    Dirty old town
    Dirty old town
    I met my love by the gas works wall
    Dreamed a dream by the old canal
    I kissed my girl by the factory wall
    Dirty old town
    Dirty old town

  • The Pogues - The Body of an American Lyrics

    4:49

    This is the forth in a series of simple music videos that include the lyrics to some of the best Pogues songs. The Pogues play traditional Irish music with influences from punk rock. While the actual sound of this music is outstanding, the lyrics are normally incredible and the work of a genius, Shane MacGowan. However many people, particularly those from outside of Ireland, sometimes struggle to make out these excellent lyrics. This series of videos aims to provide these lyrics and hopefully enhance everyones enjoyment of this superb music even further.

    The Pogues' live set from Self Aid, at Dublin's RDS, in its entirety. Introduced on-stage by the late great Ronnie Drew. A lively fifteen minutes followed; tracks include The Sick Bed Of Cúchulainn, Body Of An American, Dirty Old Town and Sally MacLennane.

    Self Aid was a concert organised to tackle the growing problem of unemployment and emigration in Ireland, heavily leaning on the success of Live Aid the previous year. The Pogues, along with a welter of Irish music's finest, certainly made it a day to remember.

    Here´s a good song from the Pogues´ album If I Should Fall From Grace With God.


    In South Australia I was born, heave away, haul away
    In South Australia, 'round Cape Horn, were bound for South Australia

    Haul away your rolling king, heave away, haul away
    Haul away, youll hear me sing, were bound for South Australia

    As I walked out one morning fair, heave away, haul away
    'Twas there I met Miss Nancy Blair, were bound for South Australia

    There's just one thing that's on my mind, heave away, haul away
    That's leaving Nancy Blair behind, were bound for South Australia

    And as we wallop round Cape Horn, heave away, haul away
    You'll wish to God you've never been born, were bound for South Australia

    In South Australia I was born, heave away, haul away
    In South Australia, 'round Cape Horn, were bound for South Australia

    I'm a man you don't meet every day

    I have acres of land
    I have men at command
    I have always a shilling to spare
    So be easy and free
    when you're drinking with me
    I'm a man you don't meet every day

    So come fill up your glasses
    of brandy and wine
    Whatever it costs I will pay
    So be easy and free
    when you're drinking with me
    I'm a man you don't meet every day

    Well I took out my dog
    and him I did shoot
    All down in the county Kildare
    So be easy and free
    when you're drinking with me
    I'm a man you don't meet every day

    3:13

    Fare thee well to you, my own true love,
    There were many fare thee wells
    I am bound for California,
    A place that I know right well

    So fare thee well, my own true love,
    For when I return, united we will be
    It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
    But my darling when I think of thee

    I am bound on a Yankee clipper ship,
    Davy Crockett is her name,
    And her Captain's name it is Burgess,
    And they say that she's a floating hell

    So fare thee well, my own true love,
    For when I return, united we will be
    It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
    But my darling when I think of thee

    Oh I've sailed with Burgess once before
    And I think I know him well
    If a man's a sailor he will get along
    If he's not then he's sure to tell

    So fare thee well, my own true love,
    For when I return, united we will be
    It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
    But my darling when I think of thee

    Oh the sun is on the harbour, love,
    And I wish that I could remain,
    For I know that it will be a long, long time,
    Before I see you again

    So fare thee well, my own true love,
    For when I return, united we will be
    It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me,
    But my darling when I think of thee

  • The Pogues - Thousands Are Sailing

    5:29

    The island it is silent now
    But the ghosts still haunt the waves
    And the torch lights up a famished man
    Who fortune could not save

    Did you work upon the railroad
    Did you rid the streets of crime
    Were your dollars from the white house
    Were they from the five and dime

    Did the old songs taunt or cheer you
    And did they still make you cry
    Did you count the months and years
    Or did your teardrops quickly dry

    Ah, No, says he 'twas not to be
    On a coffin ship I came here
    And I never even got so far
    That they could change my name

    Thousands are sailing
    Across the Western Ocean
    To a land of opportunity
    That some of them will never see
    Fortune prevailing
    Across the Western Ocean
    Their bellies full
    And their spirits free
    They'll break the chains of poverty
    And they'll dance

    In Manhattan's desert twilight
    In the death of afternoon
    We stepped hand in hand on Broadway
    Like the first man on the moon

    And The Blackbird broke the silence
    As you whistled it so sweet
    And in Brendan Behan's footsteps
    I danced up and down the street

    Then we said goodnight to Broadway
    Giving it our best regards
    Tipped our hats to Mister Cohan
    Dear old Times Square's favourite bard

    Then we raised a glass to J.F.K.
    And a dozen more besides
    When I got back to my empty room
    I suppose I must have cried

    Thousands are sailing
    Again across the ocean
    Where the hand of opportunity
    Draws tickets in a lottery
    Postcards we're mailing
    Of sky-blue skies and oceans
    From rooms the daylight never sees
    Where lights don't glow on Christmas trees
    But we dance to the music
    And we dance

    Thousands are sailing
    Across the Western Ocean
    Where the hand of opportunity
    Draws tickets in a lottery
    Where e'er we go, we celebrate
    The land that makes us refugees
    From fear of Priests with empty plates
    From guilt and weeping effigies
    Now we dance to the music
    And we dance

    On the first day of March it was raining
    It was raining worse than anything that I have ever seen
    I drank ten pints of beer and I cursed all the people there
    I wish that all this rain would stop falling down on me

    And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
    And mother wake me early in the morning

    At the time I was working for a landlord
    And he was the meanest bastard that you have ever seen
    And to lose a single penny would grieve him awful sore
    And he was a miserable bollocks and a bitch's bastard's whore

    And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
    And mother wake me early in the morning

    I recall that we took care of him one Sunday
    We got him out the back and we broke his fucking balls
    And maybe that was dreaming and maybe that was real
    But all I know is I left the place without a penny or fuckall

    And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
    And mother wake me early in the morning

    But now I've the most charming of verandahs
    I sit and watch the junkies, the drunks, the pimps, the whores
    Five green bottles sitting on the floor
    I wish to Christ, I wish to Christ
    That I had fifteen more

    And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
    And mother wake me early in the morning

    The boys and me are drunk and looking for you
    We'll eat your frigging entrails and we won't give a damn
    Me daddy was a blue shirt and my mother a madam
    And my brother earned his medals at My Lai in Vietnam

    And it's lend me ten pounds and I'll buy you a drink
    And mother wake me early in the morning

    On the first day of March it was raining
    It was raining worse than anything that I have ever seen
    Stay on the other side of the road
    'Cause you can never tell
    We've a thirst like a gang of devils
    We're the boys from the county hell

    And it's lend me ten pounds and I'll buy you a drink
    And mother wake me early in the morning

    And it's lend me ten pounds and I'll buy you a drink
    And mother wake me early in the morning
