On The First Day of March It Was Raining - Pogues

It was raining worse than anything that I have ever seen
I drank ten pints of beer and I cursed all the people there
And I wish that all this raining would stop falling down on me

And it?s lend me ten pounds, I?ll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

At the time I was working for a landlord
And he was the meanest bastard that you have ever seen
And to lose a single penny would grieve him awful sore
And he was a miserable bollocks and a b_tch?s bastard?s whore

And it?s lend me ten pounds, I?ll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

I recall we took care of him one sunday
We got him out the back and we broke his f_cking balls
And maybe that was dreaming and maybe that was real
But all I know is I left that place without a penny or f_ck all

And it?s lend me ten pounds, I?ll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

But now I?ve the most charming of verandahs
I sit and watch the junkies, the drunks, the pimps, the whores
Five green bottles sitting on the floor
I wish to christ, I wish to christ
That I had fifteen more

And it?s lend me ten pounds, I?ll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

And it?s lend me ten pounds, I?ll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

The boys and me are drunk and looking for you
We?ll eat your frigging entrails and we won?t give a damn
Me daddy was a blue shirt and my mother a madam
And my brother earned his medals at mai lei in vietnam

And it?s lend me ten pounds and I?ll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

On the first day of march it was raining
It was raining worse than anything that I have ever seen
Stay on the other side of the road
?cause you can never tell
We?ve a thirst like a gang of devils
We?re the boys of the county hell

And it?s lend me ten pounds and I?ll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

And it?s lend me ten pounds and I?ll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning
