Lyrics

On the first day of March
It was raining
It was raining worse than anything
That I have ever seen
I drank ten pints of beer
And I cursed all the people there
And I wish that all this raining
Would stop falling down on me

And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

At the time
I was working for a landlord
And he was the meanest bastard
That you have ever seen
And to lose a single penny
Would grieve him awful sore
And he was a miserable bollocks
And a bitch's bastard's whore

And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

I recall we took care of him
One Sunday
We got him out the back
And we broke his fucking balls
And maybe that was dreaming
And maybe that was real
But all I know is I left that place
Without a penny or fuck all

And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

But now I've the most charming
Of verandahs
I sit and watch the junkies
The drunks, the pimps, the whores
Five green bottles
Sitting on the floor
I wish to Christ, I wish to Christ
That I had fifteen more

And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

And it's lend me ten pounds, I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

The boys and me are drunk
And looking for you
We'll eat your frigging entrails
And we won't give a damn
Me daddy was a blue shirt
And my mother a madam
And my brother earned his medals
At Mai Lei in Vietnam

And it's lend me ten pounds and I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

On the first day of March
It was raining
It was raining worse than anything
That I have ever seen
Stay on the other side of the road
'Cause you can never tell
We've a thirst like a gang of devils
We're the boys of the county hell

And it's lend me ten pounds and I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning

And it's lend me ten pounds and I'll buy you a drink
And mother wake me early in the morning
