Cruel mistress Lyrics

Cruel mistress by Flogging Molly  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Cruel mistress Next time out to sea 
Bring enough soul to bury me 
For I don't want my final jig 
In the belly of a squid 
Take my trousers take my shirt 
Just give me that sweet dirt 
For the water's cold and grim 
And I never did learn to swim 
No her love never set me free 
So I set off for the ocean 
Now in my dreams she comes to me 
Whispering of peace 
But I've known since the day 
That we sailed for Santiago 
Her dry embrace would kiss my face 
No never, No more 

The sea is a cruel mistress 
The sea is a cruel mistress 

Many moons to the day 
That I threw her love away 
Now every whale spouts "go to hell" 
As the wind laughs in my face 
I've grown harder on the eyes 
And salty to the taste 
My pride has gone with the wake 
As I wait a cold wet grave 
I rose to the smell 
Of a wet desert hell 
And I thought to myself 
How'd I wind up in this jail 
Till a voice called to me 
From deep within the sea 
Dry your eyes my dear fisherman 
Your ass belongs to me 

The sea is a cruel mistress 
The sea is a cruel mistress 

The earth will rest my bones 
Lord I know, Lord I know 
But I'll see you when I get home 
From the cold, yeah from the cold 

No her love never set me free 
So I set out for the ocean 
Now in my dreams she comes to me 
Whispering of peace 
But I've known since the day 
That we sailed for Santiago 
Her dry embrace would kiss my face 
No never, no more 

The sea is a cruel mistress 
The sea is a cruel mistress 

Next time out to sea 
Bring enough soil to bury me 
For I don't want my final jig 
In the belly of a squid 

Next time out to sea 
Bring enough soil to bury me 
For in my dreams she comes to me 
Whispering of peace...
