Modern World – Pogues

On a stall in EC1 Tonight she’ll be out looking for some fun Her mate Gerry’s in the basement He hasn’t got a home But prides himself that he’s got most things done Meanwhile I’m up on the roof Waiting for the sun to shine I haven’t got an excuse So I’ll just keep my […]

Living In A World Without Her – Pogues

The Sick Bed Of Cuchulainn – Pogues

Lorca’s Novena – Pogues

A single red rose clutched in a dying hand The women wept to see their hero die And the big black birds gathered in the sky Mother of all our joys, mother of all our sorrows Intercede with him tonight For all of our tomorrows The years went by and then the killers came And […]

Blue Heaven – Pogues

And branches snap at your brain If I ever get through this swamp alive I’ll nevermore pray for rain This must be the place, and still Somehow it don’t seem right That something in the moon Could change these endless days To lonely nights I take a stroll down by the sea And walk along […]

Ya always draw the ace of spades How’s it when your best friend Brings you lillies on your birthday Hey how come, hey how come Well I ain’t superstitious, but well these things I see How come, how come I ain’t a superstitious fella, but it worries me How come when your local clergy calls […]

And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda – Pogues

Small Hours – Pogues

If I Should Fall From Grace With God – Pogues

Where no doctor can relieve me If I’m buried ‘neath the sod But the angels won’t receive me Let me go, boys Let me go, boys Let me go down in the mud Where the rivers all run dry This land was always ours Was the proud land of our fathers It belongs to us […]

Thousands Are Sailing – Pogues

Tosspint – Pogues

Sprung from a nightmare’s claw Thrice crows the dawn cock The mist is on the moor Tosspint cries from croaking gills Thank God I’m not forsaken From the hellish depths of sleep At last I am awaken Tosspint flushed his kidneys And rained a golden shower Pleased to piss a good pot full He shat […]

Greenland Whale Fisheries – Pogues

—————————————— In eighteen hundred and forty-six And of March the eighteenth day, We hoisted our colors to the top of the mast And for Greenland sailed away, brave boys, And for Greenland sailed away.

Young Ned Of The Hill – Pogues

And heard the curlews cry Or seen the raven black as night Upon a windswept sky To walk the purple heather And hear the westwind cry To know that’s where the rapparee must die Since Cromwell pushed us westward To live our lowly lives There’s some of us have deemed to fight From Tipperary mountains […]

Where the lights are low Cold dirty ground Where the rivers don’t flow Nothing’s gonna change so throw it all away In the big city Where the kids will come cheap And monsters prowl and never sleep Don’t cross the road if you haven’t got the time of day Well I lost my girl waiting […]

Dark Streets Of London – Pogues

Lullaby Of London – Pogues

One evening in the spring Heard a long gone song From days gone by Blown in on the great North wind Though there is no lonesome corncrake’s cry Of sorrow and delight You can hear the cars And the shouts from bars And the laughter and the fights May the ghosts that howled Round the […]

When The Ship Comes In – Pogues

Oretown – Pogues

Streams Of Whiskey – Pogues

The Sun And The Moon – Pogues

Gartloney Rats – Pogues

For a day on the rant with some music and more They’d drink porter in Maura’s way over in Fore And never get drunk but stay sober There was Harry the banjo and Dunne of the swan With whose bone from the wing he’d beat the bodhran And the song that he’d sing was of […]
