Swagger
From what I heard the singer wrote this when he was drunk and he always sings it like he is

"Dont know where Im goin
where im goooooin, hey"

Thats it, make sure u sound drunk when you sing itback to top
Every Dog Has His Day
Well I’ve drunk to drown, on every ocean I’ve been 
Lake Tanganyika, where the crocodiles swim 
Halifax, Nova Scotia to Van Diemen’s land 
Well I drank with the Sultan, down the Suez Canal

Cause Every Dog Has Its Day 
Like every woman, she gets her own way 
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight 
I’ll captain that too, just to be there with you

Well there was old Jerry Rooney, who was mad as a mule 
Spillblood Maloney had a head like one too 
That night on the bridge, with my shovel in hand 
Well he threatened to kill me, for sure he picked the wrong man

Cause Every Dog Has Its Day 
Like every woman, she gets her own way 
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight 
I’ll captain that too, just to be there with you

Well there was mutiny in Lagos, aboard the mean ship Skondi 
Ten or twelve days in prison, till the bastards set me free 
McCloskey you’re free

Cause Every Dog Has Its Day 
Like every woman, she gets her own way 
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight 
I’ll captain that too, just to be there with you

Now I love the sea and she wants me back 
So I leave this ol’ harbor, with the wind at my back 
Goodbye mother Theresa, I hope the kids settle down 
I must head for the Chinas, pray to God I don’t drown

For Every Dog Has Its Day 
Like every woman, she gets her own way 
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight 
I’ll captain that too

Cause Every Dog Has Its Day 
Like every woman, she gets her own way 
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight 
I’ll captain that too, just to be there with you

Selfish Man
I Don't eat i just devour, everyone in every hour
All is me, is all i need and thats all that i care
Propelled through all this madness, by your beauty and my sadness
I'll never change or rearrange, till i've finished what i've started

Chorus:
And Life leads me here
It shows me, I have never really loved no one but me
Like the time, you slipped through my hands
I'll never understand why I'm such a Selfish Man

Walk around me not before me
I'll pretend not to ignore ye
But I'll compromise if I realize you can do something for me
I'm ugly and you know it, but you think that I'm a poet
So i'll keep the rhyme if i feel in time, it gets me where i'm going

Chorus:
And Life leads me here
It shows me, I have never really loved no one but me
Like the time, you slipped through my hands
I'll never understand why I'm such a Selfish Man

All i heard was an unearthly silence
Apart from the violence, explode in my head
Where all at once was this moment of beauty
No more since it slew me, no never again, again, again

No I'll never understand
No I'll never understand, why i'm such a Selfish Man...back to top
Never Met a Girl Like You Before
I would wrap the world in clover
But you make me see my way
And I would die for you tomorrow
Would you come to me today?
Sing a song of sadness about the girl with the happy face
And dance upon the water with a ripple or a trace

Love is here any cloud in the sky
Would you be my flushing bride?
I don't think so
But I never met a girl like,
I never met a girl like,
I never met a girl like you before

I'd climb the highest mountain
To the sunrise from your face
Light a million candles
To flicker to your name
Scream aloud with vengeance
With the wind beneath my breath
Do you understand the madness?
Do you recognize the grace?

Love is here any cloud in the sky
Would you be my flushing bride?
I don't think so
But I never met a girl like
I never met a girl like
I never met a girl like
I never met a girl like you before,

Oh no I never met a girl like you before
Oh no I never met a girl like you before

I'd surely die and liro
Waiting for your every call
Will I ever see your sunshine?
When I'm done playing it all

A boy with no companion
Lost for baby blue
Words more then mean it
When they count for one like you

Love is here any cloud in the sky
Would you be my flushing bride?
I don't think so
But I never met a girl like
I never met a girl like
I never met a girl like
I never met a girl like you before,

Oh I never met a girl like
Never met a girl like
Never met a girl like you before

Oh no I never met a girl like you before
Oh no I never met a girl like you before
Oh no I never met a girl like you beforeback to top
Laura
This next song is about a young lady called Laura
Who unfortunatley isn't with us anymore
But she's still called Laura
...Here we go...

Feel the words from my lips
To your harsh finger tips
Then you know where I come from
Cause I know, yes I know
Everything there is to know
Cause I lost everything I had
See, I Could have danced on the sun
But meh world came undone

(Laura)
Laura!!!!!!!!

There's no need for tears
Cause there's no need to cry
I look at you leave
..................
The pain in my head comes straight from the heart
.........Can touch who you are
So bow down, Laura
Cause no one could take your place
Bow down, Laura
Your beauty will never fade
...................
...................
And after this song, her spirit lives on
Though your not around you'll never be gone

So bow down, Laura
Cause no one can take your place
Bow down, Laura
Your beauty will never fade
And I... I could have danced on the sun
But my world came undone
Laura
Yeah, I... I could have danced on the sun
But my world came undone
Bye Bye Laura

So bow down, Laura
Cause no one could take your place
Your beauty will never fade
So bow down, Laura
Cause no one can take your place
Bow down, Laura
Your beauty will never fade

Yeah!back to top
If I Ever Leave This World Alive
If I ever leave this world alive
I'll thank for all the things you did in my life
If I ever leave this world alive
I'll come back down and sit beside your
Feet tonight
Wherever I am you'll always be
More than just a memory
If I ever leave this world alive

If I ever leave this world alive
I'll take on all the sadness
That I left behind
If I ever leave this world alive
The madness that you feel will soon subside
So in a word don't shed a tear
I'll be here when it all gets weird
If I ever leave this world alive

So when in doubt just call my name
Just before you go insane
If I ever leave this world
Hey I may never leave this world
But if I ever leave this world alive

She says I'm okay; I'm alright,
Though you have gone from my life
You said that it would,
Now everything should be all right

She says I'm okay; I'm alright,
Though you have gone from my life
You said that it would,
Now everything should be all right
Yeah should be alrightback to top
Black Friday Rule
I want to believe in myself once again
So I dream of a man whose hopes never end
To kiss with a girl who's as lovely as you
I'd give you my heart, if you gave me the truth

And for every tear that is lost from an eye
I'd dig me a well where no man could destroy
I want to believe in a freedom that's bold
But all I remember is the freedom of old

Well I lost me a wife, so I found me a plane
Flew all the way to California
This mess in my head is a mess getting out
Ya drink too much coffee, I drink too much stout

But after a while, when my mouth's not so dry
I'll dance up a storm, sure life's looking fine
But as darkness falls, I return to my bed
Don't ask me more questions, don't fuck with my head

I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
Like thousands of people, left standing in their shoe
I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
As thousands they grieve, as the Black Friday rule

The buildings they shake but my heart it beats still
Oh mother of Jesus, I feel pretty ill
I want to go home where my feet both feel safe
But there ain't no jobs in the old free state

So I must remain in my new adopted land
I'm doing the best, Hell I'm doin' all I can
So next time you see me, don't ask for my name
For I am the King and sure long may I reign

I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
Like thousands of people, left standing in their shoe
I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
As thousands they grieve, as the Black Friday rule

I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
Like thousands of people, left standing in their shoe
I've been down in this world, down and almost broken
As thousands they grieve, as the Black Friday ruleback to top
What Made Milwaukee Famous (Made a Loser Out of Me)
It's late and she is waiting, and I know I must go home,
But every time I start to leave, they play another song,
Then someone buys another round and whatever drinks are free,
What made Milwaukee famous has made a loser out of me.

Baby's begged me not to go, so many times before,
She said love and happiness can't live behind those swingin' doors,
Now she's gone and I'm to blame, too late I finally see,
What made Milwaukee famous has made a loser out of me.

Baby's begged me not to go, so many times before,
She said love and happiness can't live behind those swingin' doors,
Now she's gone and I'm to blame, too late I finally see,
What made Milwaukee famous has made a loser out of me.

What made Milwaukee famous has made a loser out of me,
What made Milwaukee famous has made a loser out of me.
What made Milwaukee famous has made a loser out of me.back to top
Between a Man and a Woman
1-2-3-4
Between a man and a woman
Life begins again
Between love and confusion
Lies only pain
Take my world, leave the soul, shake the prayer, do not let go
....
Between a man and a woman
It's everything or nothing at all
Everything or nothing at allback to top
