Rockin' The Bronx

by 47 Black. Buy album CD: Fire Of Freedom

I got a job in a band called Black 47
I was doin' nothin' special after 11
Oh we learned some tunes and wrote some songs
And we bought ourselves a drum machine to keep the beat strong

Well we bought the Irish People, the Echo and the Voice
And we rang a few bars, said "We got a new noise
And it would please us greatly to come on uptown
And show you paddies how we get on down"

One o'clock, two o'clock, give us a chance
All we wanna do is be rockin' the Bronx
3 o'clock, 4 o'clock what does she want?
The girl in black leather wants to
Rock in the, rock in the Bronx

Oh we got a gig in the Village Pub
But the regulars there all said that we sucked
Then Big John Flynn, said "Oh, no no
You'll be causin' a riot if I don't let you go"

Then a flintstone from the Phoenix gave us a call
When he heard the beat, he was quite appalled
"D'yez not know nothin' by Christy Moore?"
The next thing you be wantin' is Danny Boy!

Chris is chillin' on the uileann but he isn't alone
Here comes Freddy on the slide trombone
Add a little guitar, Geoff Blythe on the sax
Gonna shoot you full of our New York fix

Then we went into the studio and made a tape
Frank Murray from the Pogues said "I think that it's great"
Galigula said "It could be a hit,
And if it falls on its face, who gives a shit!"

Now everywhere we go we cause a fuss
Coz we play what we like and our sound is us
It's got a whole lot of hell and a little bit of heaven
That's the story so far of Black '47
