​Gonna Be a Blackout Tonight

This song is by Dropkick Murphys and appears on the album Blackout (2003).

Gonna be a blackout
Gonna nail me a black curtain up good an' tight
Gonna do what my air raid man says is right
I'm gonna pull down my shades an' turn out my light
There's gonna be a blackout tonight

'Cause my town is big and my town is bright
My town can work and my town can fight
So don't strike no light and don't cause a red
There's gonna be a blackout tonight

Gonna be a blackout, blackout tonight
Gonna be a blackout
Gonna do what my air raid man says is right
Blackout tonight
Pull down my shades an' turn out the light

Lights go out all over town
And the air raid warden walks up and down
It's part of the war, I'm gonna do it right
There's gonna be a blackout tonight

Blackout tonight
Gonna be a blackout, blackout tonight
Gonna be a blackout, gonna be a blackout
Gonna do what the air raid man says is right
Blackout tonight
Pull down my shades an' turn out the lights

My town is big and my town is bright
My town can work and my town can fight

Lights go out all over town
The air raid warden walks up and down
'Cause it's part of the war, I'm gonna do right
There's gonna be a blackout tonight

Blackout tonight
Gonna be a blackout, blackout tonight
Gonna be a blackout, gonna be a blackout
Do what my air raid man says is right
Blackout tonight
Pull down the shades an' turn out the light
