lyrics

I park my cab on Water Street
I'm waiting for a fare
Watching young girls in their first heels
Step like colts across the square

Fire on the ocean, thunder on the sea
I think of Handsome Molly
wherever she may be

Now I'm either in this cab or bar
And never in the choir
Sometimes howling and amazed
Like the wind hung up on barbed wire

Fire on the ocean, thunder on the sea
I think of Handsome Molly
and what she promised me

Iit's pretty, doe-eyed Molly
Could see so well at night
It was a hard trade she made
Just to see in black and white

Well the word's gone down this north coast
And it's boy you best take care
Cut yourself with a knife
Fiind all the salt that's in the air

Fire on the ocean, thunder on the sea
I think of Handsome Molly
who cried so easily

Now the soldiers down on Water Street
They eye the little girls
And the little girls of Water Street
Will take them 'round the world

Fire on the ocean, thunder on the sea
I think of Handsome Molly
wherever she may be
