That Woman Is Wreckin' My Head
As I went ramblin' through Dublin town, Just to see what I might spy Who should I see but a girl so pretty, A sparklin look in her eye Rambled around, Dublin town, And this fine lookin' thing did I spy From the look in her eye, I'd be better off dead, God Help me, that woman is wreckin' my head I bought her a drink and I stood her a meal, Thinkin' maybe I'd manage a ride But have me she wouldn't, ne'er dream of it once, With a fella as dodgy as I A drink and a meal, beggin' to steal, Two minutes or more by her side As dodgy am I, I'd better off dead, God Help me, that woman is wreckin my head I pulled her up closer and attempted a kiss, Her lips, they casting a spell But she up and walked out in the spit of an eye, She damned this poor bastard to hell An attempt at a kiss, one soft little kiss, And shes gone in the spit of an eye She damned me to hell, I'd be better off dead, God Help me, that woman is wreckin my head I challenged my thirst to a gentleman's race, And I beat it in the last stretch Now this girl took on Goddess-like splendor to me, A drunken and pitiful wretch A gentleman's race, at a drinkin man's pace, And that woman brought beauty alive A pitiful drunk, I'd be better off dead, God Help me, that woman is wreckin my head To hell with ya woman, you've had your last chance, At a life with a man of my worth I threw down seven bob, and departed that place, And ascended to Heaven from Earth Had your last chance, no better man, Could take you as gently as I In Heaven and Earth, I'd be better off dead, God Help me, that woman is wreckin my head When the morning's hangover was piercing my sight, And my legs had me walking fair queer Not a memory remained of that pretty fine lass, In that haze of cheap liquor and beer Fair dues to you liquor, you did your job well, Thank you dear God, for you saved me from Hell Fair dues to you liquor, you did your job well, Thank you dear God, you saved me from Hell
