Collection of Irish Song Lyrics

Liverpool Lou

Irish Song Lyrics - Liverpool LouAuthor: Dominic Behan

When I go a-walking, I hear people talking
School children playing, I know what they're saying
They're saying you'll grieve me, that you will deceive me
Some morning you'll leave me all packed up and gone

Oh Liverpool Lou, lovely Liverpool Lou
Why can't you behave just like the other girls do?
Why must my poor heart be following you
Stay home and love me, my Liverpool Lou

The songs from the river they keep saying ever
That I should forget you like I'd never met you
Tell me their song, love, was never more wrong love
just say I belong love to my Liverpool Lou
