Imelda May - Kentish Town Waltz Lyrics

Do you remember we traipsed around from pub to pound shop up through Kentish Town

Only a fiver to our name, the drunk on the doorstep had more to our shame

Living over the offie had its trials the fights all night out there and inside

And those stews that lasted three days into four and the dreaded baliffs returned to our door,



but we stuck with each other with all our might, we pulled it together and held on tight,

And I’m glad for us yeah I’m glad 'mo chroi' but its nothing to anyone ‘cept you and me

There were wrongs for every right, there’s ups and there's downs

But you’re the one for all my life, my true love I have found, yeah you my love I found



I watched the moon cover the might of the sun,

The weird eerie light at a quarter past one, and I knew in my head as I lay in my bed that you’d stay in my heart til the day I was dead,

We killed each other and loved in time, and laughed til we almost cried, yeah we cried as well when it all went to Hell,

And my heart it broke til I swear it died



but we stuck with each other with all our might, we pulled it together and held on tight,

And I’m glad for us yeah I’m glad 'mo chroi' but it's nothing to anyone except you and me

There were wrongs for every right, there’s ups and there's downs

But you’re the one for all my life, my true love I have found, yeah you my love I found



*****guitar solo******



Oh you’re good at the things I’m hopeless at and I notice what you ignore

But it's when I see you’re not prefect for me, it's then I love you more and more,



and we stuck ook with each other with all our might, we pulled it together and held real tight,

And I’m glad for us, I’m glad 'mo chroi' but it's nothing to anyone except you and me

There were wrongs for every right, there’s ups and there's downs

But you’re the one for all my life, my true love I have found, yeah you my love I found



Ooo oooo



There were wrongs for every right, there’s ups and there's downs

But you’re the one for all my life, my true love I have found, yeah you my love I found

PS. 'mo chroi' is Gaelic (Irish) for 'my heart', pronounced 'mokhree'. Imelda's pronunciation of 'stuck' as 'stook' is Dublin pronunciation.
