Thin Lizzy

Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Two of the founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist/vocalist Phil Lynott, met while still in school. Lynott assumed the role of frontman and led them throughout their recording career of twelve studio albums. Thin Lizzy are best known for their songs "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" and "The Boys Are Back in Town", all major international hits still played regularly on hard rock and classic rock radio stations. After Lynott's death in 1986, various incarnations of the band have emerged over the years based around guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes, though Sykes left the band in 2009. more »

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
