FLOGGING MOLLY


Every Dog Has Its Day Lyrics

Well I've drunk to drown on every ocean I've been
Lake Tanganyika, where the crocodiles swim
Halifax, Nova Scotia to Van Diemens 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 old harbor, with the wind at me 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, too, too, just to be there with you

Just to be there with you
