Dropkick Murphys - The Chosen Few Lyrics

Allow me to tell a story about our little town,
The big movies film here now and the stars all hang around,
Some celebs are from here but we still hope they know
That were the ones that made you, well decide when you can go.

We cant stand your success, we aren't afraid to let it show,
Just ask Lenny Clark, hell be sure to tell you so.
Were arguing for sport here, and itching for a fight,
Were obsessed with your presence,
Yet repulsed by your sight.

God loves the city's chosen few congrats to one and all,
Youve battled to the top my friends, now were ready for your fall,
Youve reached new heights and seen the sights,
Smell the roses while you can,
For another star is falling in Boston tonight!

Were creatures of habit, nothing ever changes here.
2 a.m last call, so you better buy more beer.
When our teams win it all, all we gets a rolling rally,
And every goddamn functions MCd by Mike O'mally.

It's 2008 and new kids are still the rage,
Well at least we know when they play Peter Wolf wont come on stage.
The church is in a bind, theres trouble in the halls,
But its that senator from Arlington that tried to grab my balls.

God loves the city's chosen few congrats to one and all,

Youve battled to the top my friends, now were ready for your fall,
Youve reached new heights and seen the sights,
Smell the roses while you can,
For another star is falling in Boston tonight!

If your name ain't Russell, Williams, Brady, Ortiz, Yaz, Orr, Bird,
This place can be a little tough, some might say absurd.
Dale and Holly build you up while the big show tears you down,
Just like Edgar Renteria, well ship you out of town.

But its the GMs and the owners wholl take it on the chin,
Cause we dont want excuses, we just wanna win.
Ya see when losing your everyones enemy,
I wish Henry, Kraft and Wyc would kick the shit out of Jeremy.

God loves the city's chosen few congrats to one and all,
Youve battled to the top my friends, now were ready for your fall,
Youve reached new heights and seen the sights,
Smell the roses while you can,
For another star is falling in Boston tonight!

How about those Automatics, Ernies got a lot of fans.
They dont sleep in cheap hotels or ride in crappy vans.
Theyre headed for the top, though they may not be there yet,
Theyre still the only bar band thats touring in a jet.

And dont forget our actors, Chapman, Scannell, Lynch and Goodman,
The directors always seem to make our hometown guys the hoodlum,
But ill tell ya finding talent in this town it aint easy,
Even Marty had to use a lousy local band from Quincy.

God loves the city's chosen few congrats to one and all,
youve battled to the top my friends, now were ready for your fall,
youve reached new heights and seen the sights,
smell the roses while you can,
for another star is falling in Boston tonight!
