Young and alone

Melodi: Molly Malone

In Dublin’s fair city
When I was young and gritty
I walked through these streets, I was young and alone
I came empty handed,
Knew not where I had landed
Empty gut and no muscles, but so alive oh

Alive, alive oh,
Alive, alive oh
Empty gut and no muscles, but so alive oh

Back then I was bolder
I’d come to grow older
Found a flat and a job, settled down here to stay
I dealt with the weather
And my English got better
Empty gut and no muscles, but so alive oh

Alive, alive oh,
Alive, alive oh
Empty gut and no muscles, but so alive oh

Now in retrospective
My year was effective
I grew up, learnt to deal with life just as it is
I’m back reminiscing
Can see things I’m now missing
Being young with no muscles, but so alive oh

Alive, alive oh,
Alive, alive oh
Being young with no muscles, but so alive oh

My life now is nicer
I’m older and wiser
Have a wife and two boys and my gut it has grown
As my boys grow older
And become a bit bolder
I hope they’ll go somewhere to feel so alive oh

Alive, alive oh,
Alive, alive oh
I hope they’ll go somewhere to feel so alive oh
