the eyes o' josephine

chorus
a pint er two in belfast
 burns the eyes o' josephine
an irish girl forever curls
 around your heart o' glass

shattered blowin' into town
 shattered goin' back
the nightshift calls your council
 a pitence in your pockets

the wretched poor o' poison blood
 the government the hospital
they snitch and laugh and never smile
 straight jackets for the crooked mile

chorus

i walk and stagger to your eyes
 the phenobarbital at night
we locked you up and shut the door
 your brain is scattered on the floor

quick to turn the hollow spurns
 a gapin' hole o' lonesome
a pint er two in belfast burns
 the eyes o' josephine

chorus

when darkness breaks the northern lights
and rapsody is killin' time
a brazen bastard blessed be
burns the eyes of josephine

chorus
