We come from the islands and burrows
We grew up on these streets round here
Me and My Brothers
Pat and Danny
Been putting out fires for years

Our old man and his father before him
Rode out when the siren screamed
Now we work out at the same place together
That’s Engine 19

We are boys from New York
Doing our Job
There’s times we get hurt
There’s those that we’ve lost
In the fire and the smoke
From the roof caving in
When there’s one less comes out
From Engine 19

I’ll admit when the summer’s get brutal
I see twisted steel in my dreams
And I hear the crack of old timber
And I know there’s a hell that I’ve seen
But we go round the corner on Friday
To this little old neighbourhood bar
Drink us some beers and shoot pool
Turn in a game, and play cards

We are boys from New York
Doing our Job
There’s times we get hurt
There’s those that we’ve lost
In the fire and the smoke
From the roof caving in
When there’s one less comes out
From Engine 19

We’re boys from New York
We’ll get on back up
And out of the shields in the ashes and dust
Every inch of that ladder
Every man on this team
They all ride out together
With Engine 19

Singing La Da Da Da Da, Engine 19

We’re the boys from New York
Engine 19

Feels good to be a part of something
The chain of commands
A brotherhood bound like a family
The strength of a wedding band
Every inch of that ladder
Every man on this team
They all ride out together

Our old man and our father before him
Rode out when the siren screamed
We are boys from New York
Doing our Job
There’s times we get hurt
There’s those that we’ve lost
In the fire and the smoke
From the roof caving in
When there’s one less comes out
From Engine 19

We’re boys from New York
We’ll get on back up
And out of the shields in the ashes and dust
Every inch of that ladder
Every man on this team
They all ride out together
With Engine 19

Singing La Da Da Da Da, Engine 19
Singing La Da Da Da Da, Engine 19
