A Fine Lass You Are - text
O where are you now my love of mine
I've had every drop of my brandy and wine
Until I am safe within your arms
My tears fill all of my days
O say that you won't leave me and say you won't deceive me.
It's a fine man you are, my God you have my heart.
Baby come to my uncles wake with me
At your brothers parlour up the street
And I'll take you away for a drink with me
And I will hold you close to me
Do you remember the first time we met my love
I was stunned at how pretty you are
I couldn't believe you would talk to me
I hung on every word.
Wine comes in at the mouth
Love comes in at the eye
I lift my glass to my mouth
I look at you and I sigh.
Well today have I told you, I love you
That there's no one else above you
It's a fine lass you are
Oh my God, you have my heart
I will break anyone's goddamn neck
If I hear that they've crossed you or broke your respect
From Bridgeport to Beverly all of the time
Chicago is yours now because it is mine.
Although our nights are empty my love
You still can see the stars
You are truly a light in this fucking dark
And endless world of ours.
On a Sunday mornin' for church early
With a kick my father would awaken me
Shouting some verbal abuse at me
Spewing drunk history, waving a gun at me
So come sit you down upon my knee
For I love how gentle you are
I know you know what it's like to be hurt
Hell I even love your dog, Palais.
I will break your goddamn neck
If I hear that you've crossed me or broke her respect
I'm not the friend you knew back then
You're now entering the world of men
The lights from the skyline reflect on the shore
Of my beautiful city and the town I adore
This city could crush you if you don't step aside
But this town will embrace you, because it is mine.
Chicago, it's where we were born and it's where we will go
All the pubs and the bookies that I call my home
Where warlords and con men like rats scurry home
But I walk these streets without a care all alone.
