favourite Shane MacGowan songs/lyrics/albums etc
you could have put out vietnam"
When you pissed yourself in Frankfurt and got syph down in Cologne
And you heard the rattling death trains as you lay there all alone
Frank Ryan brought you whiskey in a brothel in Madrid
And you decked some fucking blackshirt who was cursing all the Yids
At the sick bed of Cuchulainn we'll kneel and say a prayer
And the ghosts are rattling at the door and the devil's in the chair
'Cause you can never tell
We've a thirst like a gang of devils
We're the boys of the county hell"
"you're the measure of my dreams"
