Sandymount

 

Stuck in traffic, Sandymount

Friday afternoon

Check your change to pay the toll

Hope to move on soon

Queue up for the bridge

Where once the ferry was

Standing still at Sandymount

Waiting for to cross

 

Rolling down the window

Let the sea air in

Waves they first come crashing

Then recede again

Passing mirrors flash

Rushing out of town

Standing still at Sandymount

Windows all rolled down

 

Chimneys stacks rippled sand

Children after school

Pile their coats and paddle

Down in the Cockle pool

Tuning in to catch the news

The strains of some old tune

Stuck in traffic, Sandymount

Friday afternoon

 

Rolling up your window

Back in gear again

Thinking of some summer days

But you canít remember when

Pass along the quays

Youíll cross the river soon

Stuck in traffic, Sandymount

Friday afternoon
