I hated the sod for thirty three year,
We should never have married of that i'm quite clear,
He spent the housekeeping money on whiskey and beer and never lifted a finger.
So we'd fight and he'd swing and he rarely missed,
So i clobbered the sod when he couldn't resist, asleep you can't lift a finger,
He was air, he was water, he was breath, he was light,
And he would hold me there with all his might and it was bliss for an hour or so,
But then they called time to go, and in the morning we were sober.
Lie like a bairn, snore like a mule,
Rarely was sober pretty much was the rule and he never lifted a finger,
Women were women and men, they were men,
Seventeen, that was it,your life ended when you had a ring around your finger
And for a moment there my heart was aglow,
We had dust on our hair and nowhere to go,
But we were free for an hour or three,
From the people we had to be,
But in the morning, we were sober,
Well at least your grandad but then again you know best not to linger,
I had my chance well anyhow,
If i'd only know then what i know now,
I'd have given them all the finger.
And not give a shit,
Spin around and reel and love every bit,
And i'd dance alone and enjoy it, andi'd be me for and entire life,
Instead of somebody's wife,
And i never would be sober.
