lyrics

Lemon 7s

Smoking Lemon 7s through a broken bottle neck
Smoking Lemon 7s through a broken bottle neck.
Pills ground down like powder, 'til your problems are no louder than
A little infant whimpering for Ma to come & help

Passed out in a dark & damp, romantic alleyway
A stranger whispered in your ear & carried you away
Nodding to the revving, top deck of the 67 to
A college town in Kildare where the love affair began

Here’s' me head, me arse is coming down the Straffan road
Bag o cans in hand & red haired lover boy in tow
The locals think you’re shady but you, you are a lady with
A love so fine & genuine that only few should know

Sleeping in a 2 man tent beside the Royal canal
Sleeping in the harbour filed with all your traveller pals
You'd love a country cottage but you haven't got a sausage so
You're sleeping in a 2 man tent beside the Royal Canal

But love won't stop the winter when you're on the bottom rung
The cider got his liver & the cold got in his lungs
You pretend you didn't notice with your bandage & your poultice but
His sores they got infected & the cold got in his lungs

They treated you like vagrants & they said the ward was full
There upon the floor of James Connolly Memorial
You prince slept for a thousand years & you, you wept a puddle of tears
As you threw his few belongings off a cold Bull Island pier

All along the North Strand with no lover boy in tow
Back in to the city to the only life you know
You needed one to kill the pain
& love like this it knows no shame
Met an old friend in a lonely lane, rekindled an old flame
Smoking Lemon 7s through a broken bottle neck
Smoking Lemon 7s through a broken bottle neck
Pills ground down like powder, 'til your problems are no louder than
A little infant whimpering for Ma to come & help
