BRANDY (YOU'RE A FINE GIRL) (Elliot Lurie) Looking Glass - 1972 Sun City Girls - 1986 The Rubinoos - 2002 Red Hot Chili Peppers - 2004 Also recorded by: Kenny Chesney; Look Mexico; Bertie Higgins. There'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 harbour 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 harbour was his home The sailor 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..............FADE
