Flash the lights at me

Lyrics

I left school a while ago when I got meself a job
The craic was good on the building sites, and I made a couple a bob
I bought a Ford Festa, me pride and joy is she
If the’re stopping ’round the border, won’t ye flash the lights at me

Chorus
Flash the lights at me, flash the lights at me
Use the code on the border roads and flash the lights at me

I paid the auld insurance, and it cost me a couple a grand
I’m stony broke and that’s no joke, I’m sure you’ll understand
I have no money left at all to pay for an M.O.T.
If they’re stopping ’round the border, won’t you flash the lights at me
Chorus

The tyres are nearly bald and I have no tax at all
There’s a drop of red in the diesel tank that could be my downfall
If the customs, they are ”dipping” or the boys in blue you see
If they’re stopping ’round the border, won’t ye flash the lights at me
Chorus

Sometimes on a Sunday, to Jonesboro I go
I might have a couple a squibbs in the boot, tapes or videos
I might have a load of potin or a drop of duty free
If they’re stopping ’round the border, won’t ye flash the lights at me
Chorus.

We’re crafty ’round the border, that’s how we have to be
We like to get the better of the customs and authorty
We can barely forge, we know the score, we’ve a simple philosophy
If the thing’s not right day or night, won’t you flash the lights at me
Chorus
