Dublin Town Lyrics

Dublin Town Bright lights all around All the different sounds Concrete surrounds You need a few pounds or there's nothing to do No muns, no fun in the foggy dew I be signing on, off Gardiner street See all the people struggling just to make ends meet The more unfortunate ones be begging at your feet We'll have to send a warning to the socially elite And I repeat, if you keep a people down In any old town Or country They'll rise don't you see It's the will to survive That keeps them alive And they're starting to see through all the lies That they've contrived, so I say to you all To educate yourself, become well read And start to use the head Contemplate your own situation Find the true enemy and stop banging heads With the victims of its greed Am I getting too serious? Well this was meant to be a love song Well it is a love song because I love my people

Not so long ago, back in the good old days I dreamed of Irish laws and Irish ways And saw that the present days weren't so good And the only thing I could think about them that was good Was most of the people that surrounded me But still I call them good old days because of the craic That we had We refused to stay sad If you have your own around you and also possess your health At the end of the day you'll discover that that is the most Essential wealth I throw my mind back And recall the days I used to have the craic

Back in Dublin town Getting down to the Irish and Jamaican sounds listenin' and learning about life Helping me make it through the strife Suckin on a big fat spliff full of rocky Flagon in my hand Be makin me feel grand Discussing this and that And thinking about the now Thinking about the future, making myself a vow I wasn't going to waste my life But I was going to live and love Do the best that I could I was going to bring some music to the people and tell them that they were equal But some of them wouldn't listen And this is what is pissin' The rest of us off You would wanna start listening to us, you would Coz to you we aren't going to be good forever Yeh maybe even here, in the Dublin Town Things could get turned upside down
