Hoi is er iemand die mij kan helpen aan de songtekst van "The sick note" ik ken hem van de dubliners maar wie weet zijn er nog andere bands die ham uitgebracht hebben.... Dit is nou typisch zo'n nummer waar ik vrolijk van wordt, zelfs als ik heel erg chagerijnig ben! Ik hoop dat iemand mij kan helpen, thanx anyway
Dear Sir, I write this note today to tell you of me plight, And at the time of writing I am not a pretty sight, Me body is all black and blue, me face a deathly grey, And I write this note to say why Paddy's not at work today.
While working on the 14th floor some bricks I had to clear, Now to throw them down from such a height, it was not a good idea, The foreman wasn't very pleased, he being an awkward sod, He said I'd have to take them down the ladder in me hod.
Now clearing all these bricks by hand, it was so very slow, So I hoisted up a barrel and secured the rope below, But in my haste to do the job I was too blind to see, That a barrel full of building bricks was heavier than me.
So then when I untied the rope the barrel fell like lead, And clinging tightly to the rope I started up instead, Well I shot up like a rocket till to my dismay I found, That halfway up I met the bloody barrel coming down.
The barrel broke me shoulder as to the ground it sped, And when I reached the top I banged the pulley with me head, I held on tight though numbed with shock from this almighty blow, And the barrel spilled out half the bricks, fourteen floors below.
So when these had fallen from the barrel to the floor, I then outweighed the barrel and so started down once more, I hung on tightly to the rope as it sped towards the ground, And I landed on the broken bricks that were all scattered round.
Well I lay there groaning on the ground I thought I'd passed the worst, When the barrel hit the pulley wheel and then the bottom burst Well a shower of bricks rained down on me, I hadn't got a hope, As I lay there moaning on the ground I let go the bloody rope.
The barrel then being heavier, it started down once more, And it landed right across me as I lay there on the floor, It broke three ribs and my left arm and I can only say, That I hope you understand why Paddy's not at work today.
