LIFE IN AN IRISH TOWN
(John Spillane)

Yes it rains, it rains a lot, you got to be grateful for what you've got,
Yes it rains, it rains on down, sometimes I worry, we'll all get drowned,
But when it shines, and it does shine, but when it shines;

It's the most beautiful island on God's green earth
The most beautiful island gave you birth,
That's life, life in an Irish town, just life, life in an Irish town,
One day you're up and the next you're down,
Life in an Irish town,
Put on your smile, don't wear your frown,
Life in an Irish town

Yes it rains, cats and dogs, soft day, thank God
Yes it rains, six inch nails, sometimes I worry, we'll be washed away,
But when it shines, and it does shine, but when it shines;

It's the most beautiful island on God's green earth
The most beautiful island gave you birth,
That's life, life in an Irish town, just life, life in an Irish town,
One day you're up and the next you're down,
Life in an Irish town,
Put on your smile, don't wear your frown,
Life in an Irish town

You gotta cool down, calm down, climb down, tone down
Life in an Irish town,
Back down, track down, wolf down, wash down,
Life in an Irish town,
Slow down, touch down, steady down, knuckle down,
Life in an Irish town,
Buckle down, write down, whittle down, settle down,
Life in an Irish town

- Opening song from John Spillane's latest album "Life in Irish Town" - an altogether very emotional and touching endeavour.

John sings a few lines differently in the video:

[In the first chorus:]
Put on your smile; don't wear no frown,

[In the second chorus:]
Put on your smile; don't drag me down,

[And in the coda:]
You gotta cool down, calm down, tone down, climb down,
Life in an Irish town.
Back down, track down, wolf down, wash down,
Life in an Irish town.
Steady down, touch down, slow down, buckle down,
Life in an Irish town,
Life in an Irish town.
