Do not ask me how I’ve been doing, I wouldn’t even know where to begin with, It was many moons ago that the shit hit the fan, Then the domino effect had the upper hand A good old fashionned redundancy, Quite a money shortage and gone was the wifey By the time you figure out you’ve hit rock bottom, Around the corner comes another problem ‘cause Nothing is going my way / Misfortune seems here to stay Nothing is going my way / A penny or two might save the day Nothing goes my way / Nothing goes my way The cobblestoned pavement is where I stray Nothing goes my way / Nothing goes my way It’s been going that way for the past decade Ev’ry step I take leads to a mistake, Ev’ry option I choose sees me more confused, The future I’m sure still has plenty in store, The only question is : ‘is there room for more’ Call it karma, a spell or just bad timing, Whatever it’s called let me tell you one thing If this trend carries on like it’s been doing, It will put the last nail onto my coffin ‘cause

Gin is my sin and it’s always been Gin is my sin Poor me some more that’s what I’m thinking I’ll drink one for breakfest, I’ll drink one for you When we visit the in laws, I’ll surely need two Fits ev’ry occasion, and all of your moods This special elixir, each day, helps me through Pink Gins in the evening they take off the edge Before I can meet you, a screwdriver’s best Gotta give my surroundings a new perspective Did you know that my Gin makes you more attractive? Yeah! I hang out at Gordon’s, and Hendrick’s there too We’ve been getting along, since you played the fool My tastes have improved, don’t ask me to choose My friends pick me up and with them I can’t lose I’d pray for redemption, but I’m bound for hell God’s closed heaven’s Gin bar and rang the last bell I am who I am and, I won’t fight my fate It seems I’m to guzzle, all the Gin that’s been made I love it, I love it, I love it to death I want it, I want it, ‘til I draw my last breath Gin most likely will , be the end of me But at least it’s a reason for lemon to be Gin is my sin and it’s always been Gin is my sin Poor me some more that’s what I’m thinking Poor me some more time to start drinking Poor me some more Gin’s what I’m drinking yeah!

In the streets of Northbridge, ev’ry soul’s a runaway From a broken past where, felony did not pay In the streets of Northbridge, the sun’s rising on a new day Cutting off the drag of, former balls and chains In the streets of Northbridge, people tell that common tale ‘bout the revenge they took, on a marvellous escape To the streets of Northbridge, under a different name And took up their future, a few thousands miles away In the streets of Northbridge / Whatever you did The rocks are made of gold In the streets of Northbridge / Whatever you did In the streets of Northbridge / Whatever you did At last you got a home In the streets of Northbridge / Whatever you did In the streets of Northbridge, opportunities prevail It is worth having dreams, upon landing in this place In the streets of Northbridge, one can turn the page Do or make whatever, get a fresh start on the way

March On 04:07
One man parked in a camp, among a thousands more Far from his mother land, crushed by years of war He’s witnessed the horror, in the duty of battle Fighting for a system, killing folks like cattle So one fine summer day, he fired his last shot Dropped the pistol at hand, willing to reach Europe Through mountains and borders, a life changing journey Haunted by the nightmares, of human’s savag’ry Well in those times, there is no room for failure It’s do or die, and no way to surrender March on, March on, Troubled young man march on Of course his promised one, he had to leave her behind Shattered wedding dreams, without a last goodbye The man’s standing tall back, from the frontline’s fury With a twinckle in the eye, he tells you ‘c’est la vie’ Well in those times, there is no room for grieving It’s do or die, gambling on all-or-nothing

My dear Sailor Jerry Let’s again sail away To this state of grace of which you hold the key Oh please my dear Sailor Jerry Against the storms and the foggy morns We have stood side by side It is so pleasant through out rough moments To count on a loyal old pal From Barbados to the Belfast docks ‘gardless where I wind up We have always been as thick as thieves And more when my dander got up The one team mate that’s got what it takes To make me feel alive Whether hell breaks loose or during curfews Together at all times we thrive

Mad World 02:56
All around me are familiar faces Worn out places, worn out faces Bright and early for their daily races Going nowhere, going nowhere Their tears are filling up their glasses No expression, no expression Hide my head, I want to drown my sorrow No tomorrow, no tomorrow And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take When people run in circles it's a very very Mad world, mad world Children waiting for the day, they feel good Happy birthday, happy birthday Made to feel the way that every child should Sit and listen, sit and listen Went to school and I was very nervous No one knew me, no one knew me Hello teacher, tell me what's my lesson Look right through me, look right through me

Liffey Song 02:49
When missus O’Riley from county Wicklow To keep her groom away from hitting the bottle Took his barrels of grog in the river to throw So the grog n Mister O’Riley had to go with the flow As the barrels hit the shore of the Dublin Bay Not for very long in the water they stayed The dried out dockers wouldn’t let ‘em cast away But drunk’em ‘til they all passed out for the rest of the day What falls into the stream of the river Liffey Will end up in the harbour of Dublin City As soon as came the day when Mister O’Riley Was in the early morn just going cold turkey Exceeded by the mishap he carried his lady From the bridge into the river he dumped missus O’Riley As the colleen hit the shore of the Dublin Bay Not for very long in the water she stayed The single dockers wouldn’t let her cast away But made her advances n she never said nay

There’s nothing like as when game is on And all those hearts are beating as one There’s nothing like a cheering grandstand Singing anthems as loud as it can There’s nothing like the thrill of a goal As opponents are taking a blow Bodies and souls really come alive This our kick and this our drive We will always give it all For victory When it comes down to football For the goal We will always give it all Give it all give it all When it comes down to football There’s nothing like our good old boys Dressed up alike from the head to the toes With ambition set in solid stone No matter how the score will unfold There’s nothing like the game of football To truly blow passions off the wall Bodies and souls really come alive This our kick and this our drive One team, one pride, one blazon, to stand by One flag, to wave, our colors and our name

I’ve traveled the world / from Cape Town to India Been down to the Falklands / then up to Alaska But when our ways crossed / suddenly I’d found The treasure of gold this journey was about Like a pioneer I left / with none in my pocket But the will to get rich / Somewhere on this planet How was I to know / much more’s coming ‘round A treasure of gold I’d end up digging out My one and only rose You’re my one and only rose Each day is complete merely just because You’re my one and only rose Well I had my share of girls / and a few women too Without a single one / loving me like you do Womanizers like me / can cry it out loud A treasure of gold you dam are with no doubt The ones of a kind / is some money can’t buy Regarding that matter / the blue ribbon is mine You’re just more than I / could ever dream about A treasure of gold I cherish day in day out
