Brandy (You're a Fine Girl) - Looking Glass/Joe Frank/Reynolds

There's a port on a western bay

And it serves a hundred ships a day

 

Lonely sailors pass the time away

 

And talk about their homes

 

And there's a girl in this harbor town

And she works layin' whiskey down

They say "Brandy fetch another round"

 

She serves them whiskey and wine

 

The sailors say

"Brandy you're a fine girl"

 

"What a good wife you would be"

 

"Yeah your eyes could steal

A sailor from the sea"

 

Brandy wears a braided chain

Made of finest silver from the North of Spain

 

A locket that bears the name

 

Of the man that Brandy loves

 

He came on a summer's day

 

Bringin' gifts from far away

 

But he made it clear he couldn't stay

 

No harbor was his home

 

The sailor said

"Brandy you're a fine girl"

 

"What a good wife you would be"

 

"But my life my lover

My lady is the sea"

 

Yeah Brandy used to watch his eyes

When he told his sailor stories

 

She could feel the ocean fall and rise

 

She saw its ragin' glory

 

But he had always told the truth

Lord he was an honest man

 

And Brandy does her best to understand

 

At night when the bars close down

 

Brandy walks through a silent town

 

And loves a man who's not around

 

She still can hear him say

 

She hears him say

"Brandy you're a fine girl"

 

"What a good wife you would be"

 

"But my life my lover my lady is the sea"

 

She hears him say

"Brandy you're a fine girl"

 

"What a good wife you would be"
