Bottle of smoke Lyrics

Bottle of smoke by Pogues  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Bottle of smoke Thanks and praises
Thanks to Jesus
I bet on the Bottle of Smoke
I went to hell
And to the races
To bet on the Bottle of Smoke

The day being clear
The sky being bright
He came up on the left
Like a streak of light
Like a drunken f**k
On a Saturday night
Up came the Bottle of Smoke

Twenty f**king five to one
Me gambling days are done
I bet on a horse called the Bottle of Smoke
And my horse won

Stewards inquiries
Swift and fiery
I had the Bottle of Smoke
Inquisitions and suppositions
I had the Bottle of Smoke

f**k the stewards
A trip to Lourdes
Might give the old f**kers
The power of sight
Screaming springers and stoppers
And call out coppers
But the money still gleams in my hand like a light

Bookies cursing
Cars reversing
I had the Bottle of Smoke
Glasses steaming
Vessels bursting
I had the Bottle of Smoke
Slip a fifty to the wife
And for each brat a crisp new five
To give me a break on a Saturday night
When I had the Bottle of Smoke
Priests and maidens
Drunk as pagans
They had the Bottle of Smoke
Sins forgiven and celebrations
They had the Bottle of Smoke

f**k the Yanks
And drink their wives
The moon is clear
The sky is bright
I'm happy as the horse's sh*te
Up came the Bottle of Smoke
