About "Spanish Train & Other Stories" album:
This page contains lyrics from the album
"Spanish Train & Other Stories" by Chris De Burgh, which was released in 1975 and consists of 4 songs.
The cold north wind they call "La Bise"
Is swirling round about my knees,
Trees are crying leaves into the river;
I'm huddled in this french cafe;
I never thought I'd see the day,
But winter's here and summer's really over,
Even the birds have packed up and gone,
They're flying south with their song,
Patricia The Stripper
Dennis is a menace with his "anyone for tennis?"
And beseeching me to come and keep the score...
And Maud saya "Oh Lord! I'm so terribly bored!"
I really can't stand it anymore...
I'm going out to dinner, with a gorgeous singer,
To a little place I've found down by the quay;
Her name is Patricia, she calls herself Delicia,
And the reason isn't very hard to see...
There's a Spanish train that runs between
Guadalquivir and old Saville,
And at dead of night the whistle blows,
And people hear she's running still...
And then they hush their children back to sleep,
Lock the doors, upstairs they creep,
For it is said that the souls of the dead
Fill that train ten thousand deep!!
This Song For You
Hello darling, this is the army,
I've just got the time to write,
Today we attack, there's no turning back,
The boys they're all ready for the fight.
Yes, I'm well but this place is like hell,
They call it Passchendaele,
In nineteen seventeen the war must be ending,
The General said this attack will not fail;
