Lyrics

Just give me one more night, back at Shakespeare Road
Drinking Irish whiskey, in that dirty shit hole
Give me one more night, back at Shakespeare Road
Loved those Rare Auld Times with my heart and my soul
I loved those Rare Auld Times with my heart and my soul
It started back in London, back in 85'
I was drinking Irish bastard, lucky to be alive
I flew over to London, to start up a band
That when everything started, to get out of hand!
I arrived in Piccadilly Circus, where I first met the Clash
I got a flat in Westborne Park, where I started to rock
There was a knock at the door, and who did I see
It was Coko and Rory, with their bags at their feet!
Just give me one more night, back at Shakespeare Road
Drinking Irish whiskey, in that dirty shit hole
Give me one more night, back at Shakespeare Road
Loved those Rare Auld Times with my heart and my soul
I loved those Rare Auld Times with my heart and my soul
We moved down to Brixton, we got us a squat
Some dirty old house, that was starting to rot
And we never had, a key to the front door
We tossed Coko through the windows, and he'd crash to the floor!
Well we pissed out the windows, using candles for light
We had the best times, we were drinking all night
Blasting Screaming Blue Messiahs, on our cassettes
Never forget those times, they were the best!
Just give me one more night, back at Shakespeare Road
Drinking Irish whiskey, in that dirty shit hole
Give me one more night, back at Shakespeare Road
Loved those Rare Auld Times with my heart and my soul
I loved those Rare Auld Times with my heart and my soul
Bridge
Last time I saw Coko, he said write this song
About Shakespeare Road man, put the fucker down
So this is for Coko, and I hope you agree
Those were the best times yeah, Coko, Rory and Me!
