Mog
Gods Are Smiling
Lyrics
On the walls
of the castle
Glaswegian Gavin
plays some tunes
six Irish angels
surround us
and surely
the gods are smiling too

We know
this can only get ugly
but how brilliant
that will be
vodka
with beer as a mixer
while we sway
to the sweet melodies

Let me now sing
what I failed to say
dear friends may you
hear this song some day
I wish I had
forever stayed
and not been the
fool who walked away

We know
this can only get ugly
but how brilliant
that will be
vodka
with beer as a mixer
while we sway
to the sweet melodies

If the bus breaks down
before old Prague town
I know I'll be walking
to my new friends
pray we meet again
I hope you're still laughing

I look forward
to the day when I
finally might
get a goodbye right
but as that may
be some time away
I won't think of
it again today

We know
this can only get ugly
but how brilliant
that will be
vodka
with beer as a mixer
while we sway
to the sweet melodies

We know
this can only get ugly
but how brilliant
that will be
vodka
with beer as a mixer
while we sway
to the sweet melodies
