Brandy

"Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)"
(As recorded by Looking Glass)
ELLIOT LURIET

Here's a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time away
And talk about their homes
And there's a girl, in this harbor town
And she works, laying whiskey down
They say "Brandy, fetch another round
"She serves them whiskey and wine
The sailors say "Brandy, you're a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
Yeah your eyes could steal a sailor
From the sea."Brandy, wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the north of Spain
A locket, that bears the name
Of a man that Brandy loved
He came, on a summer's day
Bringing gifts, from far away
But he made it clear, he couldn't stay
No harbor was his home
The sailors said "Brandy, you're a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
But my life, my lover, my lady
Is the sea."Yeah Brandy used to watch his
eyes when he told his sailor's story
She could feel the ocean fall and rise,
she saw it's raging glory
But he had always told the truth,
Lord he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand
At night, when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves a man, who's not around
She still can hear him say, she hears
him say"Brandy, you're a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
But my life, my lover, my lady
Is the sea""Brandy, you're a fine girl
What a good wife you would be
But my life, my lover, my lady
Is the sea"
