ROCK OF GIBRALTAR (Terry Gilkyson) Frankie Laine - 1952 (Gibraltar is standin' alone) That's why they call me the Rock of Gibraltar That's why they say my heart is made of stone So don't you try to lead me to the altar Because Gibraltar is standin' alone (Gibraltar is standin' alone) I've travelled all over from city lights to clover I'm sellin' brushes door to door The ladies know me well, they're buyin' what I sell But I never let 'em ask for any more And I never put my toes in a door that might be closin' I try to use my winnin' ways But when I know for certain the lady is a-flirtin' I tell her I'll be back in thirty days (That's why they call me the Rock of Gibraltar) (That's why they say my heart is made of stone) So don't you try to lead me to the altar Because Gibraltar is standin' alone (Yes, Gibraltar is standin' alone) Now when a lady rushes, I sell her two more brushes And then I leaver her at the door I'm always thinking of the freedom that I love 'Cause I'm a man of freedom to the core So, it's not that I am choosy with Isabel or Susie I just like to lead a happy life Give me women, wine and song, then I know I can't go wrong Until I take a woman for a wife That's why they call me the Rock of Gibraltar That's why they say my heart is made of stone So don't you try to lead me to the altar Because Gibraltar is standin' alone (Yes, Gibraltar is standin' alone) So, it happened one morning without any warning I knew that I had met my doom She was pretty, she was sweet, she swept me off my feet She didn't even have to buy a broom They used to call me the Rock of Gibraltar And now they say my heart is made of clay But after she had led me to the altar Then old Gibraltar crumbled away Old Gibraltar took a tumble that day!
