Dropkick Murphys – Famous For Nothing lyrics

The barrel fire's fading
My pals are disappearing
Another night is passing but I won't go
It's 2AM at townie
And things are going my way
Three buds, a glove and a foot of snow
There's two little s***s
Selling joints on the hill
And the kids down the lot
Are burning cruisers for a thrill
See, we had each other
It was us against the world
Famous for nothing
Yeah, nothing was our world

[Chorus:]
Well these lies won't save me
Don't you know, don't you know
From the times that made me
Here we go, here we go

The courts are filling up
All the kids are coming down
For a head start on the troubles
Of a long night on the town
Yeah, thank God it's Saturday
And half my problems go away
Sure the big ones on the way
But I know how to handle them
9 to 3 on weekdays
On the hour Sundays
The good lord was calling me
But I wasn't up
From the convent to the rectory
And over in the sacristy
I'm a goddamn travesty
And that's just my luck

[Chorus:]

Here we go! (yeah)
Their gang went my way for basketball
My gang went their way for alcohol
When we met it wasn't pretty at all
Still the bells of St. Mary's kept ringing

9 to 3 on weekdays
On the hour Sundays
The Jesus Christ was calling me

Here we go (yeah)
Their gang went my way for basketball
My gang went their way for alcohol
When we met it wasn't pretty at all
Still the bells of St. Mary's kept ringing

Their gang went my way for basketball
My gang went their way for alcohol
When we met it wasn't pretty at all
Still the bells of St. Mary's were ringing
The bells of St. Mary's were ringing
