drinkin' in the day
the tossers - drinkin' in the day
that is a tune written by bono and his good friend simon carmody. it was originally recorded by ronnie drew of the dubliners. the above version of it is performed by the tossers, a chicago-based band who play music in the tradition of the pogues. it's folksy with a punk edge. this tune is very cheeky. bono and simon's lyrics remind me of "the fly" as a a dirty old man:
deny your friends and family / to serve you must betray / break and enter heaven / steal but never save / squander every penny / empty every heart / travel every darkened road / never finish what you start / always talk to strangers / make love with whom you may / for god will find good company / for your drinking in the day......
lyrics : drinkin' in the day

did you know that if you do a google search for "bono + tossers" you find lots of hits for people who think bono is just such a flaming tosser? yeah, i guess you did know that. (nme readers : discussing bono).
according to the silly little gossip news today, apparently bob geldof's daughter is in the "bono is a tosser" camp, too. awesome. peaches geldof even supports a band called "bono must die." classy.
