New Music Monday – ‘Fairground’

It’s Monday, it must be New Music! Today’s ditty is called ‘Fairground’:

If you can’t play the song or are on an iPhone or Android phone, click here.



It’s a long way down from here (2)

I’m holding on like you taught me to

I’m holding out ‘cause it’s all I know how to do

It’s a long way down from here


I’m on a dirt-cheap fairground fall (2)

It’s a long way down from here, where I come from

We don’t need rituals, love tests

The way you do

If I was more like Oscar Wilde, I might know what to say

But every single word I use gets twisted the wrong way


And I fall!

If I was more like Oscar Wilde, I might know what to say

But if I was like Al Pacino, I could just blow her and blow her away


And I fall!

It’s a long way down (5)

Where I come from


Lyrics & music: D. Flynn

    Love this! It makes me want to go to a club in Ireland to hear you perform it live. But when I think of Ireland I realize…it’s a long way. (heehee)

  10. Derek! That song was frigging good! Seriously, man. I’ve enjoyed some of the tracks before, but never did I really feel bad that it didn’t already sit on my iPod, if that makes any sense. Well done! Loved it.
