If The Dublin City Rounders were a dog it would be a pink bulldog with a cowboy hat, a studded leather collar and sporting a sleeveless denim jacket.

Two Irish brothers, one mind and a single beating heart made of rock n roll gold.
Whether playing a Stephen Foster esque song from the 1880’s or a brand new self penned classic you can’t take your eyes, or ears, off these lads!

Track Name: Baby I Get It (Where I Can)
Just like a preacher on the old CC I've stopped by many a door
I've laid down under the apple tree and I've slept on many a floor
But when the sun comes up I won't be found taking up your time
I'll be looking ahead on that open road and I don't care what's behind

Oh baby I get it, I get it, I get it where I can
I don't know what a woman wants until a woman wants a man
Oh, Baby I get it, I get it, I get it all the time
You don't have to spell it out
Baby I get it

Well you want me to settle down and make some steady pay
To go to bed in the early night and labour all the day
But I won't slave for man nor woman, livin' on my knees
I gets my money however I want and I spends it how I please

'And oh baby I get it, I get it, I get it where I can
I don't know what a woman wants until a woman wants a man
Oh, Baby I get it, I get it, I get it all the time
You don't have to spell it out
Baby I get it

You say that men like me ain't got no place in this world no more
And I can't always get a welcome when I come around your back door
I'm well aware of my shortcomings that you equate to crimes
But what you don't know is I've heard those words of scorn a thousand times

Oh baby I get it, I get it, I get it where I can
I don't know what a woman wants until a woman wants a man
Oh, Baby I get it, I get it, I get it all the time
You don't have to spell it out, you don't have to scream and shout
I get it

Track Name: How Could I Say No
How could I say no to them big sad eyes
How was I to know you were telling me lies
You must have saw me coming, you put on your disguise
How could I say no to them big sad eyes

You said that you were needy but that wasn't true
I gave you all my money but that wouldn't do
It took my whole life to satisfy you
And now that I have nothing, you've found somebody new

How could I say no to them big sad eyes
How was I to know you were telling me lies
You must have saw me coming, you put on your disguise
How could I say no to them big sad eyes

Well God gave me a heart and God gave me a mind
But what can I do if my eyes are blind
In a world that is so mean, it don't pay to be kind
In the time that I have left I'm keeping what's mine

How could I say no to them big sad eyes
How was I to know you were telling me lies
You must have saw me coming, you put on your disguise
How could I say no to them big sad eyes
