Autumn Morning

(J. Jongeling)

 

On a bright autumn morning

She took her life so they say

Without any warning

She decided not to stay

 

It always seemed she could cope with

The brutal facts of every day

But there must have been some reason

That forced her anyway

 

Refrein

Farewell dear friend

Wish I could still touch your hand

Farewell good friend

We’ll meet again in the end

 

She often cursed the future

Though it seemed she had nothing to blame

She only stood on that threshold

But backed off all the same

 

She once told me she could never

Choose for to break or bend

She was here now she’s gone

And she won’t come again

 

Refrein

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Donegal Girl

(J. Jongeling)

 

The sun lightened up her flaming red curles

And showed me in a second the joy of this world

Struck by this beauty I sank on my knees

Wishing to be the prey of this girl

 

Refrein

Yeah this Donegal girl

Steeling flowers from Donegal’s earth

Yeah this Donegal girl

Made my world

 

Yeah pick me lassie and cuddle me tight

Take me home to stay for the night

Feed me right put me in your vase

In the morning you’ll see my full colours bright

Refrein

 

The sun lightened up flaming red curles

Intensively showing the joy of my world

She gave to me the most beautiful smile

Straight from her heart and her amber green eyes

 

Refrein(2x)

Common Man

(J. Jongeling)

 

He’s just a common man

With common needs and common plans

Wasn’t born to make a stand

Or things to proclaim

 

He stood for nothing and

No one really knew this man

Didn’t even have a friend

For his feelings to share

 

Refrein

Yet he lived his life with dignity

With a certain kind of charity

No matter what, he’ll always be

Just a common man

 

Whenever someone talked with him

It wasn’t worth remembering

His thoughts and words just faded in

The haze of the morn

 

He never seemed unhappy though

Appeared to be a content soul

His one and only certain goal

Was the fact that he was born

 

Refrein (3x)

 

He’s just a common man

With common needs and common plans

Wasn’t born to make a stand……..

 

 

Dreadful Cliché

(J. Jongeling)

 

I wish I didn’t smoke

But the fag keeps burning

I wish I didn’t drink

But my glass is always full

I wish I didn’t think that much

But my head is full of fuzzing

Keeps on happening every day

Keeps on happening every day

 

I wish I didn’t love you

But I’m your full time addict

I wish you didn’t thrill me so

But you really freak me out

I wish I could avoid mistakes

But here I go again

Keeps on happening every day

Keeps on happening every day

 

Refrein

It’s a dreadful cliché

Repeating and repeating

It keeps coming my way

Repeating and repeating

 

I wish I’d never lose

But I’m lost again

Forever stuck in a maze

Of which there’s no way out my friend

Far away from the truth

That maybe could have showed me

Keeps on happening every day

Keeps on happening every day

 

Refrein (2x)

B.C. Diamond

(J. Jongeling)

 

He hit the town bout a month ago

In his awful big limousine

His name is Diamond and he’s got a style

We ain’t never seen

He hangs around in local bars

Gambles, drinks and plays

Never seems to work a single day

 

Refrein:

I wish I was B.C. Diamond

I’d take you riding in my brand new Chevrolet

If I was B.C. Diamond

I was just killing my time and all my bills were payed

 

All the girls are waiting in line

To catch his attention

Their body talk is plain to see

And he’s taking all his chances

Every day and every night

He picks one out of many

What kind of man is this B.C.

We really don’t know any

 

Refrein

 

I wish I was B.C. Diamond

I’d take you riding in my brand new Chevrolet

If I was B.C. Diamond

Just killing my time and all my bills were payed

Just killing my time and all my bills were payed

 

 

 

Down to the Liffey

(J. Jongeling)

 

The wheather was bad, and worse ahead

Clouds turned too a vicious black

On that very day, Johnny went out to sea

And all they found was a wreck

 

She stood there alone, and her heart turned

too stone

She died a thousand deaths

Her future was gone, in that devastating hour

Cause her Johnny didn’t come back

 

Farewell to the life of a husband and a wife

Farewell to the safety and dreams

What was she gonna do when the crying is done

And care takes over the tears

 

Refrein

She went down to the Liffey

Went down to pray for advise

Down to the Liffey

Cause the river’s old and wise

 

On came the man, he was Johnny’s best friend

He’d seen her weep and mourn

Tomorrow’s care, he offered her

And her lonely heart got torn

 

So what could she do in these days of despair

And lonelyness haunts her dreams

She was trapped in a world troubled with pain

Oh Johnny sweet Johnny can’t you see

 

Refrein

 

Seven years had gone by, in a wink of an eye

She took life the way it went

On a bright summer morn, there was a knock

on the door

In her heart she knew what that meant

 

With trembling hands she gazed at the man

Who stood there with his hat in his hands

He could see the surprise in her clear blue eyes

When he said I’m Johnny your old man

 

Refrein (2x)
