From boom to bust.

lyrics

The tiger is hungry
she broke out of her cage
will this be the tale
of our Golden Age?

It's funny how money
can make you so poor
We used to settle for some
but now we want more
and more and more and

She's like a ship out of steam
our Celtic Tiger dream
She's the debts you made
but knew you'd never pay
She's the job that you hate
but it's far too late
It was all
bound to fall
It was all bound to fall

So climb on the ladder, kid
reach for the sky
but it's bound to fall
if we all get so high
And I remember the poet
down by the canal
so how can I stay
for a creature of clay?
When all the while

She's like a ship out of steam
our Celtic Tiger dream
She's the debts you made
but knew you'd never pay
She's the job that you hate
but it's far too late
It was all
bound to fall
It was all bound to fall

It was written in red
all the newspapers said
We'd started to stall
It was the end of it all
We set sail for foreign shores
like so many before
It was the end of it all
We're all bound to fall

And she's like a ship
out of steam
