Lyrics

(Source: Faith and Courage)

I was born in Dublin town,
Where there was no too much going down
For girls whose only hope
Was not to find a man who could piss in a pot.
So early I heard my first guitar,
And I knew I wanted to be a big star,
And I told my poor, worried father,
Said, "I ain't gonna go to school no more,
Cuz see I wanna look cool and I wanna look good,
With my hair slicked back and my black leather boots.
Wanna stand up tall with my boobs upright,
And feel real hot when the makeup's nice.
I get sexy underneath the lights,
Like I wanna **** fuck every man in sight.
Baby, come home with me tonight.
Make you feel good, make you feel all right."
I'm going away to London.
I got myself a big fat plan.
Gonna be a singer in a rock 'n' roll band,
And I'm gonna change everything I can.
Sorry to be disappointing;
Wasn't born for no marrying.
Wanna make my own living singing,
Strong, independent pagan woman singing.
And I feel real cool and I feel real good.
Got my hair shaved off and my black thigh boots.
I stand up tall, with my pride upright,
And I feel real hot when my makeup's nice.
I get sexy undernearth them lights,
Like I wanna **** fuck every man in sight.
Baby, come home with me tonight.
Make you feel good, make you feel all right.
I'm glad I came here to London.
I've had myself some big fat, fun.
And I have even made some mon.'
I got the most angelic son.
My baby daughter is golden.
And I do what I like for fun,
And I am happy in my prime.
Daddy, I'm fine, Daddy, I'm fine, Daddy, I'm fine,
Daddy, I'm fine, and Daddy, I love you.
