For my better half...A beautiful one.

Shane MacGowan (S.M.) and Kirsty MacCall (K.M.)

S.M. 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

K.M. 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 he first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

K.M. You were handsome
S.M. You were pretty
Queen of New York City
K.M. S.M. 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

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

K.M. S.M. The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas Day

S.M. I could have been someone
K.M. Well, so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
S.M. 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

K.M. S.M. The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells are ringing out
For Christmas Day

I can live everywhere in the world, but it must be near an airport -and a pharmacy, I would add.

Δεν είναι ο ύπνος της λογικής που γεννάει τέρατα, αλλά ο άγρυπνος ορθολογισμός που πάσχει από αϋπνίες.

Υπέροχο, όπως και ό,τι σχεδόν έχουν κάνει οι τρομεροί Ιρλανδοί. Το συγκεκριμένο πάντως είναι από τα πολύ αγαπημένα μου.

Επιφυλάσσομαι για τη συνέχεια...

Σήμερα μπορώ. :-)

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
And I wish that all this raining 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 bitches' bastards whore

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

I recall 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 that place without a penny or fuck all

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

And its 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 mai lei 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 of 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
