You're Gonna Work It Off

lyrics

You're gonna work it off one kiss at a time
You're gonna pay me back all that is mine
You're gonna work it off till I'm satisfied
You're gonna make it up one kiss at a time

You thought I was defeated, here's the surprise
You thought that I was cheated but I got wise
It didn't take much lookin' girl, to see through all your lies
Now you're gonna give to me what you gave to them other guys

You're gonna work your little fingers to the bone
Cookin' and sweepin' and washin' all of my clothes
Those arms you were so free with will be busy all the time
You'll be workin' till you're old and grey, returning what is mine

You're gonna work it off one kiss at a time
You're gonna pay me back all that is mine
You're gonna work it off till I'm satisfied
You're gonna make it up one kiss at a time

You swore that you would love, honour and obey
and I'll keep you to your word, little girl, every single day
You said I was the only man you held in your heart
Now all you gotta no is: Till death do us part

You're gonna work your little fingers to the bone
Cookin' and sweepin' and washin' all of my clothes
Those arms you were so free with will be busy all the time
You'll be workin' till you're old and grey, returning what is mine

You're gonna work it off one kiss at a time
You're gonna pay me back all that is mine
You're gonna work it off till I'm satisfied
You're gonna make it up one kiss at a time

about

The Dublin City Rounders Dublin, Ireland

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!
