Mad Dog Woman
(Brendan "Brush" Shiels)

I think today, don't let the light shine in.
Because I don't know where I'm goin',
but it's some place I ain't been.
And I don't wanna see the faces
of the people in the streets.
I wanna get out of town,
baby, let the man chase ingognito.
I'm having such a bad time,
almost losing my mind,
trying to shake off this crazy woman of mine.

She's a mad dog woman
with distemper in her mouth.
Well, she must have seen me coming,
'cause I'm here and I can't get out.
And she knows I've tried to leave her
and she's out to get me back.
Don't put me, got to believe
it's not the courage that I lack.
I'm having such a bad time,
almost losing my mind,
trying to shake off this crazy woman of mine.

Mad dog on the loose.
Mad dog on the loose.
Mad dog on the loose.
Mad dog on the loose.

Mad dog on the loose.
Mad dog loose.
Mad dog on the loose.
Mad dog.
Mad dog on the loose,
mad.

Mad dog on the loose.
Mad dog on the loose.
Mad dog on the,
mad dog on,
mad dog.

Mad dog on the loose,
hands are wearing other mens gloves.
She got a face like an angel,
sapphire foxy nose.
She's got two legs instead of four,
hands instead of paws.
No harm by her flashy nails.
Vengeance quicker than pulse.
I'm having such a bad time,
almost losing my mind,
trying to shake off this crazy woman of mine.

Virgo's Daughter
(Brendan "Brush" Shiels)

I'll tell you what are your lucky numbers,
two, three, four and five.
I'll tell you what star you were born under,
I've checked with the sky.
I know you've thought about destiny
long before today.
What you believed in before you met me,
it's not hard to say.

Since we met, I'd like to bet,
it was written in the stars.
Now you're here, it's all so clear,
about Jupiter and Mars.
Hold out your hand,
let me look at your palm,
so I can see the line.
You're still pure, of that I'm sure.
Now I have learned your sign.

(Tonight is the night of the moon's eclipse.)
Tonight is the night of the moon's eclipse.
(With a little luck I get to kiss your lips.)
With a little luck I get to kiss your lips.
(Everything is lucky now.)
Everything is lucky now.
(Pins on you to my rabbit's foot.)
Pins on you to my rabbit's foot.

Heading Home Again
(Brendan "Brush" Shiels)

I'm goin' away till tomorrow comes.
I wanna see what the new day's brung.
And if the weather's favorable
and it don't look like rain,
I'm gonna pack my bags and head home again.

I wanna be where that green grass grows.
I wanna see the face I love the most.
Where they know very little
about sorrow and pain.
I'm gonna pack my bags and head home again.

I'm gonna soak in all those familiar faces,
pull myself together as we gaze upon each other.
I'll tell them all about those far away places.
Tell my sister and tell my brother,
laugh with my faffy and cry with my mother.

I'm getting tired of all this hanging 'round.
And just as soon as first I'm settled down,
I'm gonna swallow up my pride,
bury down my shame.
I'm gonna pack my bags and head home again.

An Awful Lot Of Woman
(Brendan "Brush" Shiels)

This whole thing about her just drives me wild.
Everything she do, she do with style.
Walk and talk, it keeps you on the ball.
An awful lot of woman is my woman child.
Makes you wanna shout "Show wee".
Only thing she knows is love.
There ain't no doubt, she belongs to me.
She's the only woman I'm thinkin' of.

She's all heart, she got a sweet disposition.
She makes love in any position.
She's much more than just a pretty smile.
An awful lot of woman is my woman child.
Makes you wanna shout "Show wee".
Only thing she knows is love.
There is no doubt, she belongs to me.
She's the only woman I'm thinkin' of.

Something about her just drives me wild.
Everything she do, she do with style.

Only thing she knows is love.
There is no doubt, she belongs to me.
She's the only woman I'm thinkin' of.
She's the only woman I'm thinkin' of.
The one and only woman I'm thinkin' of.

Unco-Up Showband Blues
(Brendan "Brush" Shiels/Noel Bridgeman/Gary Moore)

Want to tell all you pretty girls.
All you pretty girls
with your pretty faces.
Yeah, I wanna tell all you pretty girls.
All you pretty girls
with your pretty faces.
You know if you ever meet these girls, yeah.
But I say nothing, made no mistakes.

I got a job in a showband.
Working like a slave
six nights and every Sunday.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby.
You know they've put me,
put me on a weekly wage.
But I said nothing, oh,
made, made no mistakes.

I got a job in a showband.
Oh, working like a slave

Yes, yes, yes, yeah, baby,

Yes, baby, but I say nothing, oh,
never made, never made my big mistake.

For Those Who Do
(Brendan "Brush" Shiels/Noel Bridgeman/Gary Moore)

If you should change your mind,
I won't be sleeping.
If you show the world,
I'll stay awake all night.
I'm easy if you are.
I'm easy if you are.

If you show the world,
the light is in the window.
If you show the world,
the key is in the door.
I'm easy if you are.
I'm easy if you are.
I'm easy if you are.

I'm the one who will be heard,
'cause you lied with every kiss.
Never would I speak a word
to anyone of this.
Never would I say to you, "Go"
"Go, and don't come back."
No one ever loved as you, believe me.
Hey, hey, that's a fact.

Well, it's no easier,
trying to hide my pain.
And it's no easier,
waiting for you to come back again.
And it's no easier, it's no easier,
it's no easier, no.

I'm the one who will be heard,
'cause you lied with every kiss.
Never would I speak a word
to anyone of this.
Never would I say to you "Go home",
"Go and don't come back."
No one ever loved as you, believe me.
Hey, hey, that's a fact.

But, it's no easier,
trying to hide my pain.
And it's no easier,
waiting for you to come back again.
And it's no easier, it's no easier,
it's no easier, no.

After I'm Gone
(Brendan "Brush" Shiels)

After I'm gone, you'll be so sorry.
For putting me on, you will worry.
Won't be around when you finally realize,
I was the only one who loved you for yourself.

Who's gonna hold you when the night comes creepin'?
Who's gonna dry your eyes when you're weepin'?
Baby, when all is said and done,
you're gonna miss me after I'm gone.

After I'm gone, you'll be so sorry.
For putting me on, you will worry.
Won't be around when you finally realize,
I was the only one who loved you for yourself.

The Man Who Never Was
(Brendan "Brush" Shiels/Noel Bridgeman/Gary Moore)

Once, early on a crystal morning.
A punch at her hus's,
it came without a warning.
The man who never was
and who never will be.
His horse is slightly shored,
number two score and three.

I spotted him unpaled
against a frightened cloud.
Knew from the way he was coming,
he was heading south.
The man who never was
and who never will be,
racing through the air
in preferance to land or sea.

The man who never was
was the man who never is.
And the man who never was or is
would always feel like this.
And if I was the man
who never was or is,
I would always feel there was something
I had missed or lost.

Shouting to a steedge
as they spread across the sky.
Picking up spin
as the clouds began to dry.
The man who never was
and who never will be,
tracing the weary path of his infinity.

Felicity
(Gary Moore)

Felicity, you and me,
could we make it three
if we only had the time?
Imagine our friends man and wife
would be as yours and yours as mine.
Never mind the weather, birds of a feather,
we'll stick together won't we, Felicity?

When on the roads, drive carefully.
Remember you belong to me,
don't take chances in the sea.
We'll sit and watch the sunshine charge
and maybe tuck our eyes,
tell the man to turn the power off the TV.

But still you're just a dream.

Mervyn Aldrige
(Brendan "Brush" Shiels)

Mervyn Aldrige who eats greengage
has never thought about his age.
And he's gettin' on.
He would never hurt a fly
no more than he'd hurt you or I.
He knows right from wrong.

Absent friends have made him think.
Now, for the first time he feels alone.
Standing near the kitchen sink,
his thoughts drift back to his first home.

Esther and he were both so happy,
never a worry or care.
Both he and she had spoiled the baby
with overaffection and care.

It seems like only yesterday
and now both of those have gone.
And he eats another greengage
and his thoughts drift on
and on and on and on and on
and on and on and on and on, aah.

Mervyn Aldrige who eats greengage
has never thought about his age.
And he's gettin' on.
Maybe you can tell me why
Mervyn lives just to die.
He knows right from wrong.
He knows right from wrong.

He knows right from wrong.
He knows right from wrong.
He knows right from wrong.
He knows right from wrong.

He knows right from wrong.
He knows right from wrong.
He knows right from wrong.
He knows right from wrong.

He knows right from wrong.
He knows right from wrong.
He knows, he knows,
he knows right from wrong, yeah.

He knows right from wrong.
He knows right from wrong.
