01. We Will Be Strong

Lyrics by Phil Lynott
Pity the fool
It's hard but he broke a rule
And that isn't done
Somehow, someday, brother will use a gun
Just walking the town
Just painting it sad
It's bringing me down
It's driving me mad
Woman is away from me

We will be strong, we will be strong
I know we have the strength to carry on
We have the strength
I know my rights from wrong
I know you've lost I've won
We will be stronger
We will be strong
And getting stronger every day
Believe me when I say it
There is no other way to convey it

No other way you clown
Your thoughtfulness has brought us down
And that isn't right
That we should walk alone on the streets at night
Just checking the time
Walking that very fine line
The humour is black
The plan is attack
Now woman is away from me
But we will be strong

We will be strong, we will be strong
I know we have the strength to carry on
We have the strength
I know my rights from wrong
I know you've lost I've won
We will be stronger
We will be strong
And getting stronger every day
Believe me when I say it
There is no other way to convey it

Down on your luck
The shock it has struck
The weak ones will die
The questions are why? why?
Does anybody hear?
Does anybody understand?
Let me make it clear
Now's the time to take a stand
Now woman is away from me
But we will make it strong

We will be strong, we will be strong
I know we have the strength to carry on
We have the strength
I know my rights from wrong
I know you've lost I've won
We will be stronger
We will be strong
And getting stronger every day
Believe me when I say it
There is no other way to convey it

We will be strong
We will
We will be strong
We will be
We will be strong
We will
We will be strong
We
We will
We
We will be
We
We will
We will be strong
We will be strong


02. Chinatown

Lyrics by Brian Downey, Scott Gorham, Lynott, Snowy White
Living and dying
In chinatown
Yes they're living and dying down in old chinatown
You better look around
Man, you don't stand a chance if you go down in chinatown
Man, you don't stand a chance if you go down in chinatown

Laughing and crying you know it's a fact
They're not laughing they are crying
'cause they won't be back
Oh no you don't come back
Not from chinatown
Man, you don't stand a chance if you go down in chinatown
Man, you don't stand a chance if you go down in chinatown

Chinatown, it's a different scene
There are people there, they are so obscene
If you see what I mean
Then they've sold you the dream
Down in chinatown
What goes up it must come down

Living and dying
There is no release
Living and dying
There is no relief
There is no beliefs
Not in chinatown
Man, you don't stand a chance if you go down in chinatown
Man, you don't stand a chance if you go down in chinatown


03. Sweetheart

Lyrics by Phil Lynott
If I was to stand in a general election
Would you tell me about your close inspection
And how I never stood for detection
Or would you take another man?
If I told you I had the solution to starvation
All the nations would be their own salvation
And those that lead us lead us not into temptation
Or they pick another man?

Sweetheart
It's affecting me
Sweetheart
It's so effective
Sweetheart
Do you detect in me
A sacred sweetheart

If I told you about my plan would you believe me?
This is my body, my blood, would you receive me?
Or would you be the first to deceive me
And take another man

If I told you that I'm not the man to worry
Would you believe me when I said I was really sorry?
Or would you rush off in a hurry to take another man?

Sweetheart
Disconnect from me
Sweetheart
You have got no respect for me
Sweetheart
It's affecting me
My sacred sweetheart

And when you're troubled and when you're ill
You know I'll help, I always will
And when you're troubled and really down
You know I'll always be around
And when you're troubled and really broke
There is hope, there's hope, there's hope

Sweetheart
It's affecting me
Sweetheart
You've got no respect for me
Sweetheart
It's so effective
My sacred sweetheart
Sweetheart
Disconnect
Sweetheart
It's so effective
Sweetheart
It's affecting me
My sacred sweetheart
Sweetheart
Sweetheart
Sweetheart


04. Sugar Blues

Lyrics by Downey, Gorham, Lynott, White
Now I'm not the type to worry
Especially if it's concerning my health
Oh no, I'd never worry
I'd much rather do something else
I'm changing my point of view
Ever since I caught me the sugar blues

Oh that sugar
It adds a little sweetness in your life
Oh sugar
Won't you add a little sweetness to my life
You see I'm changing my point of view
Ever since I caught me the sugar blues

See I'm changing my point of view
Ever since I caught me the sugar blues
Yes, I'm changing my point of view
Ever since I got me the sugar blues
You see I'm changing my point of view
Ever since I caught me,
Ever since I caught me the sugar blues
Oh yes
I need me a sugar beet
I'm not the type that would complain
Just give me sugar cane
Give me
Gimme
Gimme
Gimme
Sugar


05. Killer On The Loose

Lyrics by Phil Lynott
Some people they call me jack
Some people they call me insane
I'm looking for somebody
And I don't even know her name
I might be looking for you
Wherever you may be
For there is something I've got to do to you honey
And it's between you and me
Now you might think it's funny
Or maybe it's a joke
But you've got plenty of reason to worry honey
'cause you wouldn't stand a hope

There's a killer on the loose again
A killer on the loose
There's a killer on the loose again
A ladykiller on the loose

Now I'm not trying to be nasty
Or I'm not trying to make you scared
But there's a killer on the loose
Or haven't you heard
He'll be walking around this town
Just about midnight
Yes, that's chinatown
That's right
That's right

Now you might think I'm messing
Or he don't exist
But honey I'm confessing
I'm a mad sexual rapist

There's a killer on the loose again
A killer on the loose
There's a killer on the loose again
A ladykiller on the loose

I'll be standing in the shadows of love
Waiting for you
Don't unzip your zipper
'cause you know I'm jack the ripper
Now don't wail, don't...

There's a killer on the loose again
Standing in the shadows
A killer on the loose
There's a killer on the loose again
Coming to get you
A ladykiller on the loose
There's a killer on the loose again
Standing in the shadows of love

A killer on the loose
There's a killer on the loose again
That's right jack
A ladykiller on the loose
There's a killer on the loose again
Standing in the shadow
A killer on the loose again, of love
There's a killer on the loose again
Oooh
You better watch out
A killer on the loose
Play that back
Check it back


06. Having A Good Time

Lyrics by Lynott, White
Me and my buddies we're going to get drunk
We're going to go out on the town
We'll be checking it out, slipping it in
And stepping out of line
You know everybody likes to get a little crazy
In their own particular way
But my buddies and I we go over the top
And we're going over again today

We'll be having a good time
Passing the by-line
Having a good time
You know it's a rock and roll pastime

It might be typical, topical or maybe tropical
That doesn't mean anything
If you're political, practical
Then it's improbable, that you do anything
But me and my buddies we like to go crazy
We like to go over the hill
Hey, woman will you be there, because my buddies and I will

Having a good time
Passing the by-line
We'll be having a good time
It's a rock and roll pastime

Hey, snowy...play a bit for me
That was snowy white
And he likes err...it in the night
The next to play
I must say, is scott gorham
And away...

We'll be having a good time
Passing the by-line
Having a good time
It's a rock and roll pastime

Let's play that one more time
Hit me with that drum brian
Hit me as hard as you can
Oh yes, that's they way I like it
Do it again, do it again, let's do it again

Having a good time
Oh yes I like this
Having a good time
Typical, topical, who cares?
Having a good time
Political, practical, impossible
Having a good time

Don't ask me why jack?
Having a good time
Ho! ho! ho! ho! ho!
Having a good time
Having a wild time
Having a good time
I'm slipping on the inside
Having a good time
That's fine having a good time
Having a good time
Drinking beaujolais
No that doesn't rhyme
Having a good time
I'm talking from the top of my head
Having a good time
To the bottom of your soul


07. Genocide

Lyrics by Phil Lynott
When they try to tell you knowledge is a dangerous thing
It's such a dangerous thing
The people that have it are the people that sin
And the people that need it are the people that can never win
They can never win
Let me get you out of here little broken wing

There are people round here that are right
There are people round here that like to sleep at night
There are people round here that go slow
There are people round here that don't kindly to the killing of the buffalo

When they tear up all the treaties and break up all the plans
They break up all the plans
Did you do your duty and kill on command?
Did you know the redman used to roam this land?
He used to roam this land
Now the souls of lost warriors blow across the sands

People round here they get it right
People round here we like to sleep at night
There are people round here that go slow
People round here that don't take kindly to the killing of the buffalo, oh no

So listen to my story and listen to it well
You better listen well
Listen to the glory of the gory details of the tale I tell
Did you know the redman very well?
I used to know him well
Did you know the hunting ground before it became a hell?

There are people round here that are right
There are people round here that like to sleep at night
There are people round here I don't know
There are people round here that don't take kindly to the killing of the buffalo

The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o

The killing
The killing of the
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing
The killing

So listen to my story of genocide
How they were hunted and slaughtered till there was no place left to hide
Did you know the redman used to hold his head with pride?
Till every man, woman and child were destroyed

There are people round here that get it right
There are people round here that couldn't sleep at night
There are people round here I don't know
There are people round here that don't take kindly to the killing of the buffalo

There are people round here that understand
There are people round here that couldn't give a damn
There are people round here that go slow
There are people round here that don't take too kindly to the killing of the buffalo

The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing
The killing of the
They're killing all the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing
They're killing all the
They're killing all the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing of the buffala-o
The killing
The killing
The killing of the buffala-o

(repeat at random)


08. Didn't I

Lyrics by Phil Lynott
Well I thought I could make you cry
Oh didn't i?
I didn't think that I would miss you
Ah did you, did you true?
And I told you before
When you walked out that door
That I wouldn't love you any more
I cannot cope any more

Well I thought you'd never lie
Why didn't i?
I didn't think that you'd be untrue
Well did you, did you too?
And I've told you before
When you'd walk out that door
That I would no cope any more
I do not have you any more

I thought I could make you cry
And I tried now didn't i?
I didn't think that I would miss you
But it wasn't true, I do
And I told you before
A million times or more
That when you'd walk out that door
I would no love you any more
I do not love you any more

I lied now didn't i?
Oh didn't i?

There are people in this town
That say I don't give a damn
But the people in this town
They never could understand
Oh they never could understand

I thought I could make you cry
And I tried, now didn't i? didn't I try, didn't i?
I didn't think that I would miss you
But it wasn't true, I do, I do
And I told you before
That you'd open up my sores
And you'd leave me here with scars
I cannot take it any more
Oh don't hurt me no more

I cried and I cried, now didn't i?
Why didn't I try? why didn't i?


09. Hey You

Lyrics by Downey, Lynott
You're living in a small town
The people there are cold
Just living in a small town
Just doing as you're told
You move up to the jungle
You find that it's a hell
When you slip, you fall, you stumble
They lock you in a cell

Hey you, you've got it made
Hey you, you've got it made
Hey you, you've got it made
Hey you, all your friends told you in your small town
Hey you, you've got it made

Just living in your home town
Sometimes it's kinda cruel
Living in your home town
Where they treat you like a fool
You move up to the city
You find that it's tough
And it doesn't seem very pretty
Now you're sleeping in the rough

Hey you, you've got it made
Hey you, you've got it made
Hey you
You've got it made
Hey you
You're heading for the big time
Hey you, you've got it made
You're headed for a life of crime

Living in this jungle
It's like living in a hell
When you slip, you fall, you stumble
They lock you in a cell
You move out to the country
For something you have done
You're living in the country
Why don't you go back to where you come from?

Hey you, you've got it made
Hey you, you've got it made
Hey you, you've got it made
Hey you, you've got it made
Hey you, you've got it made

Forget all these backslappers
You don't stand a chance
Why don't you go home?
Go right back to where you come from
Don't get involved in this masquerade
This big city is going to eat you up
All the backslapping
Hey you, you've got it made
