Christy Brown a clown around town
Now he's a man of renown from Dingle to Down
I type with me toes
Suck stout through me nose
And where it's gonna end
God only knows

Down all the days
The tap-tap-tapping
Of the typewriter pays
The gentle rattling
Of the drays
Down all the days

I have often had to depend upon
The kindness of strangers
But I've never been asked
And I never replied
If I supported Glasgow Rangers

Down all the days
The tap-tap-tapping
Of the typewriter pays
The gentle rattling
Of the drays
Down all the days

No, Count Rugen would claim that title. {#Cool}


That band makes me want to check my teeth!

Apparently not photoshopped, he really does have 6 fingers.

The Pogues dedicated this release "to the 95 people who died at Hillsborough Football Ground." On 15 April 1989, supporters of the Liverpool Football Club were crushed to death at a FA cup semi-final match against Nottingham when police opened a gate which allowed hundred of fans to pour through onto an already packed terrace. The official death total is now at 96 (95 died at the stadium, one later in hospital) with another 730 injured, and to date, British justice has been unable or unwilling to hold any authorities (police officials who ordered the gate opened, sports/stadium officials who organized the event, etc.) responsible for the deaths. Also, on the front cover photo, note the boxer's right hand (he's got six fingers). - copied from https://www.poguetry.com/pnl.htm - The Parting Glass.

That boxer on the cover probably had a wicked right—what with the six fingers and all.

He types a little better too, by the sound of it.

What?  Six fingers?  Well, I'll be!

I'll be damned. Right you are.
Great, Great, Great Pogues album...2nd only to If I Should Fall From Grace With God !!

Have seen them live many times...drunk or sober, Shane McGowan is a classic.

Bought this album when it came out and I was a young lad in Boston. Like a lot of Pogue songs, it's very rough around the edges but does relay a feeling of Ireland, its dirty streets but lovely green trees. Reminds me of Ireland when I visited my girlfriend living there. We hitch hiked around the country for 2 weeks. Great way to see the countryside but an even better way to meet the people, talk with them, understand what it IS to be Irish, not just an impression of the beautiful landscape.
