Lyrics Bagatelle – Summer In Dublin

Take me away from the city
And leave me to where I can be on my own
I wanted to see you and now that I have
I just wanna be left alone
I'll always remember your kind words
And I'll still remember your name
But I've seen you changing and turning
And I know that things just won't be the same

I remember that summer in Dublin
And the Liffey as it stank like hell
And young people walking down Grafton Street
Everyone looking so well
I was singing a song I heard somewhere
Called "Rock 'n' Roll Never Forgets"
When my humming was smothered by the 46A
And the scream of a low flying jet
So, I jumped on a bus to Dún Laoghaire
Stopping off to pick up my guitar
When a drunk on a bus told me how to get rich
I was glad we weren't going too far

So, I'm leaving on Wednesday morning
Trying to find a place where I can hear
The wind and the birds and the sea on the rocks
And where open roads are always out there
And sometimes if I tire of the quiet
And I wanna walk back up that hill
I just get on the road and I stick out my thumb
Cause I know for sure that you'll be there still

I remember that summer in Dublin
And the Liffey as it stank like hell
And young people walking down Grafton Street
Everyone looking so well
I was singing a song I heard somewhere
Called "Rock'n'Roll Never Forgets"
When my humming was smothered by the 46A
And the scream of a low flying jet
So, I jumped on a bus to Dún Laoghaire
Stopping off to pick up my guitar
When a drunk on a bus told me how to get rich
I was glad we weren't going too far

I remember that summer in Dublin
And the Liffey as it stank like hell
And young people walking down Grafton Street
Everyone looking so well
I was singing a song I heard somewhere
Called "Rock'n'Roll Never Forgets"
When my humming was smothered by the 46A
And the scream of a low flying jet
So, I jumped on a bus to Dún Laoghaire
Stopping off to pick up my guitar
When a drunk on a bus told me how to get rich
I was glad we weren't going too far

I remember that summer in Dublin
I can still see that sunshine in Dublin
