Irish Son
oleh: Westlife



Verse 1
I was born in the heart of DublinTo a holy book full of rulesMade get on our knees every Sunday with the other fools We were warped by the Christian BrothersIn the cell blocks at our schoolsGet a handprint on your skinFrom a claw of jewels
Go hit me nowThat I'm twice your sizeBrushed off the accusationsAnd bowed before your lies
Chorus 1
This is the city that raised meWith the religion they gave meNow I'm old enough to know my own mindAnd it was leaving that saved meI've seen so much that has changed meJust break with your pastFeed your own mindThis Irish son has moved with the times
Verse 2
Weddings deaths and baptizing childrenThat's my debt paid to the churchI don't need that kind of salvationWhen I get hurt
Don't fill my head with sermonsAnd force me to believe
Chorus 2
This is the city that raised meWith the religion they gave meNow I'm old enough to know my own mindAnd it was leaving that saved meI've seen so much that has changed meJust break with your pastFeed your own mindCos' this Irish son has moved with the times
Verse3
Our father who art in heavenCome down here and make your presence knownWe can't do it on our ownThe lunatics let run the asylumHow can we find peace inside your homeWhen you can't trust your own
Chorus 3This is the city that raised meWith the religion they gave meNow I'm old enough to know my own mindBut it was leaving that saved meI've seen so much that has changed meSo just break with your pastFeed your own mindCos' this Irish son has moved with the timesCos' this Irish son has moved with the times
