A song about the woes of having a voice like Shane MacGowan's...


The Curse Of Shane MacGowan

While I was still in junior school
at the tender age of eight
they told me at the talent show
that backstage you must wait
Then I stepped into the limelight
and I struck that opening chord
but the second I began to sing
the audience all roared

Shane MacGowan!
Shane MacGowan!
He sounds like Shane MacGowan
when he sings
Shane MacGowan!
Shane MacGowan!
He sounds like Shane MacGowan
when he sings

I moved on to a collage
and joined the football team
I played defensive quarter back
my game was tough and mean
when we sang the national anthem
just before the game began
the crowd would hear my raspy voice
and the shit would hit the fan

Shane MacGowan!
Shane MacGowan!
He sounds like MacGowan
when he sings
Shane MacGowan!
Shane MacGowan!
He sounds like Shane MacGowan
when he sings

In this grimy bar in Dublin where
You can still smoke if you like
the beer was thin as water
but they had an open mic
So I had myself a Guinness
and I stepped onto the stage
but as I started singing
this one guy began to rage

Holy Moses!
Holy Moses!
he sounds exactly like me
when he sings
Holy Moses!
Holy Moses!
he sounds exactly like me
when he sings

From the table in the corner
a ragged man appeared
he threw himself around my neck
while bursting into tears
"I always thought I was alone
but I was clearly wrong
c'mon, lets sing a duet
cause the whiskey won't last long"

Shane MacGowan!
Shane MacGowan!
We sound like Shane MacGowan
when we sing
Shane MacGowan!
Shane MacGowan!
We sound like Shane MacGowan
when we sing

the first song on my new station needs to be this lively one. Very charming, it put a smile on my face! He plays defensive quarterback? :)
