fellow hoodlums lyrics – deacon blue

on the night that
maxton died
i fell over
the clyde was full of old tyres
the wind nearly pulled my
breeches off
and ann kelly
she kissed my mouth
fellow hoodlums and
engineers
the union`s south
and we`re all here
i`m going up buchanan street
with a box of fireworks
and two bottles of
tizer
on the last train from st. enochs
i saw the graveyard
it looked like our old street
people were cheering
all the way from hampden
with macaroons and
and scarves and rattles
fellow hoodlums and
engineers
the union`s south
and we`re all here
i`m going up buchanan street
with a box of fireworks
and two bottles of
tizer
billy`s a butcher now
always has been
and he picks his teeth
with old rusty meat hooks
and he sends his beef with the bike boys
monday to sat*rday
partick to cowcaddens
fellow hoodlums and
engineers
the union`s south
and we`re all here
i`m going up buchanan street
with a box of fireworks
and two bottles of
tizer
i`m going up buchanan street
with a box of fireworks
and two bottles of
tizer
