Pogues, The - House Of The Gods Lyrics




Finally found a place they could never reach
Sipping singha beer on Pattaya Beach
Singha beer don't ask no questions
Singha beer don't tell no lies
Singha beer don't ask no questions
Singha beer don't tell no lies

There's a guy next to me won't tell me his name
Buy's me mekong whiskey just the same
Singha beer don't ask no questions
Singha beer don't tell no lies
Singha beer don't ask no questions
Singha beer don't tell no lies

I'm just a wally
Hanging out on Pattaya Beach
I'm just a wally
Hanging out on Pattaya Beach

Met a girl said she's really going to blow my mind
She say's she don't mean sex and I say alright
Turns out she's a bloke, tries to give me head
I have to run out screaming to the street instead
She's just a wally
Hanging out on Pattaya Beach
I'm just a wally
Hanging out on Pattaya Beach

Singha beer don't ask no questions
Singha beer don't tell no lies...

In the house of the gods
Where no mongrels preach
I watched the sun going down
On Pattaya Beach

I'm just a wally
Hanging out on Pattaya Beach
I'm just a wally
Hanging out on Pattaya Beach

Pogues, The House Of The Gods Comments
  1. Andy Beck Music

    Classic Pogues. You can't understand much of what MacGowan's singing, but this song - like many of their others - had me from the start. Heard it on the way back from a gig in Germany, where I'm proud to say Irish music has a massive following :-)

  2. Stephen McManus

    Shane is up there with Lennon/McCartney.

  3. Killer Kilroy

    What is a “just a wally”

  4. Filip Hudej

    singha with me dont ask no questions
    singha with me dont tell no lies

  5. dammbleth2

    … and just what exactly is a "wally" if anyone knows?

    Michael Dyer

    dammbleth2 - pretty sure that “Wally” means an Australian man.

    Daniel Cook

    dammbleth2 Hi - it’s a British word and it means fool /idiot 👍

  6. A Newer World

    My favorite beer is whiskey.

  7. Elliott Blake

    sea of meat

  8. Sophie is bad At usernames.

    Wtf is this shit? *burns the house of the gods T shirt my nan got me*

  9. Behind The Counter

    Wonderfully produced by the late great Joe Strummer. RIP.

  10. Niadh Ail

    strange it used to be just 'swindon byf' not 'swindon byf's channel' :/

  11. terry blake

    Was living in Thailand when this CD came out. If i was sitting around having a beer my 5 year old son would come up to me sing "Daddy! Singha beer don't tell no lies".

    .

    terry blake I owned this CD when I was a Navy MP in Yokosuka Japan in 1991. One night I rode along with our dispatcher in his Toyota Skyline and I put this CD in his car stereo . We jammed out as we drove around the the area of Yokosuka and Yokohama . I visited Thailand a couple of years later. This song was on my mind when I was there . I didn't pay for girls , I just ate Thai food and drank Singha Beer. I also visited Phuket. Tiger Beer was the standard in Singapore. Australia is a different story. LOL !

    A Newer World

    Beautiful nation. I'm about to head back for the third time.

    KR EEP

    lol, that's great

  12. Nico Rigo

    The Pogues borrowing the intro from the Beach boys' You still believe in me here. Gowan the Pet sounds!

  13. jonathan koza

    Pogue Mahone!!!!!!!!

  14. macsauce

    Buy's me mekong whiskey just the same
    Singha beer don't ask no questions
    Singha beer don't tell no lies

  15. Ekim Rogregy

    Spent the whole of 1990 thinking the chorus was "Sea of green don't ask no questions, etc"  Mind you, I spent the whole of 1990 so drunk that I didn't think to look at the lyrics on the inner sleeve.  I'm sober (ish) now & have finally seen my error.   

  16. Eddy Coulson

    Faustino is a nice one, but overpriced in the UK. Number one is my fave.

  17. Seán O'Nilbud

    Chang is fucking dangerous. SangSom and coke is your man, you know what you're getting.

  18. Seán O'Nilbud

    A Grolsch with the thick glass bottle and ceramic lid, just on the verge of turning to ice.

  19. Chris F

    Wat a place :)

  20. Joseph Loveys

    Great song and I love the pogues and this album. Not sure why it is so much about Thailand and that area. There is really nothing special about. Pattaya beach sucks. Anyway, good stuff.

  21. Lasse Robertsen

    @SIFLandOLLYshow I would think it more plausibel if the"ladyboy" ran away after seeing Shanes toothy smile.

  22. MasterMarf

    im a wally! :D

    dammbleth2

    what exactly is a "wally" may I ask?

    Daniel Cook

    dammbleth2 it’s a British term - means a fool

  23. v-town1980

    @TryingIsGood That's great! Just as the first few notes were played, I said "Hey...Beach Boys...Pet Sounds." Good call!

  24. ShaniaMacFree

    @Irishqueen88 It´s on The Crock Of Gold. But that´s The Popes, no more The Pogues.

  25. ShaniaMacFree

    @ConnDevi88 That´s crazy, I heared it with 3 or 4 years always with my aunt! When the CD started with Sunny Side Of The Street I was always happy.

  26. Richard Dolan

    good knowledge

  27. nboldock

    This was in response to Irishqueen88 but seems to have been misposted...

  28. nboldock

    It's on "The Crock Of Gold" by Shane MacGowan & The Popes - it is NOT, as stated below on "Peace & Love". It was not a Pogues song, though it is a great song. The melody was nicked from the dub band Culture, as evidenced on the Pogues boxset and the song "Pinned Down / I'm Alone In The Wilderness". Plenty for you to go on with there!

    Charles Schaefer

    yer just a wally

  29. Liz Campbell

    thank you

  30. Chris F

    if only i was lying on pattaya beach with a singha right now

  31. Liz Campbell

    what album B&I Ferry on?

  32. Bogdan F

    Fine tune, I definetly love Pogues. They along with other bands like Flogging Molly really manage to give me an Irish feeling. :D

  33. Weepyun

    Excellent! Now one of my new top 3 Pogues songs. :) Like Springsteen, I've never even heard this before.

    Daniel Cook

    Weepyun my favourite 😊
