Today, for Song Lyric Sunday, we are asked to find a song with alcohol in the title. There are so many of these, it’s hard to pick one, but I’ve always liked this one because it has a smooth sound, and is a bit melancholy.

***

“Brandy”, by Looking Glass, was released as a single from the album, “Looking Glass”, in 1972. It is on the Epic label, and was written by Elliot Lurie.

There’s a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time a way
And talk about their homes

And there’s a girl in this harbor town
And she works laying whiskey down
They say Brandy, fetch another round
She serves them whisky and wine
The sailors say…

Chorus:
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 a man that Brandy loved
He came on a summer’s day – bearing gifts – from far away
But he made it clear he couldn’t stay
No harbor was his home
The sailor said Brandy…

– Chorus –
Brandy, you’re a fine girl

What a good wife you would be

But my life my love and my lady is the sea.

Yeah Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told this sailor’s story
She could feel the ocean fall and rise
She saw its raging 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…

– Chorus –
Brandy, you’re a fine girl

What a good wife you would be

But my life my love and my lady is the sea.

Brandy, you’re a fine girl

What a good wife you would be

But my life my love and my lady is the sea….

    • You’re welcome! I’ve always heard this song, but until I posted the lyrics, I’d never knew the whole meaning of it, either. Makes it more meaningful. 🙂
