lyrics

Engaging conversation
Bit of light for you and i
A bucket of concentration
And a poke in the evil eye
A word to all the patron saints near and far away
Late night cards and best regards
The parting of the day

Well bring an extra pack boys it's the party of the year
The skies are all laid open and the sun is wild and clear
The working day has ended and no one's short of cash
I hope we make it 'til the night time's through
I hope I spend my final days with you

(Accordion break)

Outside on the fire escape the sun is going down
Paper matches fill the air and devils whirl around
The rushes bend and bristle, the rose sweet and true
I swear I saw Godiva, her eyes were pale and blue

Well bring an extra pack boys it's the party of the year
The fields have all grown over, the sky is wild and clear
The working day has ended and no one's short of cash
I hope we make it 'til the night time's through
I hope I spend my final days with you

(Mandolin & penny whistle break)

(Repeat first verse)
The rushes bend and bristle, you're the rose that I can see

(Mandolin break)
