Have You Seen Dave Connolly, Brian [Standing in the Shadows]?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Twas Ruby Tuesday in the rain, the game was quite a belter,
Though sitting out there all exposed, I shouted “Gimme Shelter.”
The Last Time that we played the Turks, they beat us fair and square,
And my Nineteenth Nervous Breakdown happened when we went out there.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The game was quite a good one, Ireland did Not Fade Away,
Though at the end, those Tumbling Dice all landed Ireland’s way.
We were nearly Out of Time, when up stepped Richard Dunne,
Who’d Come On just before when Turkey thought they had it won.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Up till then, they’d beaten us, we watched As Tears went By,
Which goes to prove that I am just a stupid Fool To Cry,
Time was far from On our Side, till Dickie took his bow,
And then the referee blew up, saying “Its All Over Now.”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Don’t Start Me Up ‘bout our defence, we’ve problems at the back,
Although ‘twas just a friendly, and I’m loathe to Paint It Black,
I Can’t Get No Satisfaction from the draw, though goodness knows,
You Can’t Always Get What You Wanna, I suppose.

Notes

The Rolling Stones were playing the Point Depot last night too.
