Dublin 07 (John Carney)

This one goes out to everybody in the Flats
Here we go
This one’s for all you gangsters who think that you can get me
Come on get me!

Come on girl you know how much I want you
Like a ghost I’m going to haunt you
Meet me at my crib, bring your friends
Maybe you can drive a Mercedes Benz
We’ll hang out pool-side, have a drink
I’m swimming against the tide, not gonna sink
Come on girl, let’s get in trouble
Shaken not stirred, a James Bond from Dublin

We got something real

I’m the joker with the Glasgow smile
Ready to die for ya, I go in style
Dressed from head to toe in Italian
In the bed I’m like a stallion
I’m the king of the MMA
Like Conor McGregor only not as gay
Living the dream in a bed full of bitches
The Midas touch, I got the riches
And when they slit me and stitch me up
They’d better use Gucci stitches, yeah?

We got something real

Come and get me guys
Come and get me boys
Come and kill me lads

We got something real
Gucci, Gucci, Gucci
We got something real
Gucci, Gucci, Gucci
