The Pogues

The Pogues are a Celtic punk band from London, formed in 1982 and fronted by Shane MacGowan. The band reached international prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. MacGowan left the band in 1991 due to drinking problems but the band continued first with Joe Strummer and then with Spider Stacy on vocals before breaking up in 1996. The band reformed in 2001, and has been playing regularly ever since, most notably on the US East Coast around St Patrick's Day and across the UK and Ireland every December. The group has yet to record any new music and, according to Spider Stacy on Pogues.com, has no inclination to do so. more »

I like to walk in the summer breeze 
Down Dalling Road by the dead old trees 
And drink with my friends 
In the Hammersmith Broadway 
Dear dirty delightful old drunken old days

Then the winter came down and I loved it so dearly 
The pubs and the bookies where you'd spend all your time 
And the old men that were singing 
When the roses bloom again 
And turn like the leaves 
To a new summertime

Now the winter comes down 
I can't stand the chill 
That comes to the streets around Christmas time 
And I'm buggered to damnation 
And I haven't got a penny 
To wander the dark streets of London

Every time that I look on the first day of summer 
Takes me back to the place where they gave ECT 
And the drugged up psychos 
With death in their eyes 
And how all of this really 
Means nothing to me

Now the winter comes down 
I can't stand the chill 
That comes to the streets around Christmas time 
And I'm buggered to damnation 
And I haven't got a penny 
To wander the dark streets of London

Every time that I look on the first day of summer 
Takes me back to the place where they gave ECT 
And the drugged up psychos 
With death in their eyes 
And how all of this really 
Means nothing to me

Now the winter comes down 
I can't stand the chill 
That comes to the streets around Christmas time 
And I'm buggered to damnation 
And I haven't got a penny 
To wander the dark streets of London 
To wander the dark streets of London 
To wander the dark streets of London
