"Cheers Darlin'"
Альбом "O" (2005)


Cheers darlin'
Here's to you and your lover boy
Cheers darlin'
I got years to wait around for you
Cheers darlin'
I've got your wedding bells in my ear
Cheers darlin'
You gave me three cigarettes to smoke my tears away

And I die when you mention his name
And I lied, I should have kissed you
When we were runnin' in the rain

«I Shot The Sheriff»


I shot the sheriff but I did not shoot the deputy.
I shot the sheriff but I did not shoot the deputy.

All around in my home town
they're trying to track me down.
They say they want to bring me in guilty
for the killing of a deputy,
for the life of a deputy.
But I say

I shot the sheriff but I swear it was in self-defence.
I shot the sheriff and they say it is a capital offence.

Sheriff John Brown always hated me,
for what I don't know.
Every time that I plant a seed
he said, 'Kill it before it grows'.
He said, 'Kill it before it grows'.
But I say

I shot the sheriff but I swear it was in self-defence.
I shot the sheriff but I swear it was in self-defence.

Freedom came my way one day
and I started out of town.
All of a sudden I see sheriff John Brown
aiming to shoot me down
so I shot, I shot him down.
But I say

I shot the sheriff but I did not shoot the deputy.
I shot the sheriff but I did not shoot the deputy.

Reflexes got the better of me
and what is to be, must be.
Every day the bucket goes to well
but one day the bottom wuill drop out,
yes, one day the bottom will drop out.
But I say

I shot the sheriff but I did not shoot the deputy.
I shot the sheriff but I did not shoot the deputy.

«Mary's in India»

Danny is lonely
Mary's in India now
She said she'd call but that was three weeks ago
She left all her things well, her books and her letters from him
But as the sun rises on Mary sets on him
And just dance, and just drink
And just see the things I probably never get the chance to see
Danny's not eating, he's drinking and sleeping
I saw him last night at party, he's definitely thin
He says he's happy, look pretty good
But I think
That as the sun rises on Mary sets on him
And just dance, and just drink
And just see the things I probably never get the chance to say
Danny came over last night and I cooked for him
He talked about you Mary and how much we loved you still
He told me he's packed up your books and your letters and things
But as the sun sets on Mary, it's rising on him
And we danced, and we drank
And I've seen something you probably never got the chance to see
Don't worry, Mary
Cause I'm taking care of Danny
And he's taking care of me

«Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)»

I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down.

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play?"

Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down.

Music played, and people sang
Just for me, the church bells rang.

Now he's gone, I don't know why
And till this day, sometimes I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie.

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down...
