​Politics

This song is by The Waterboys and appears on the album An Appointment With Mr Yeats (2011).

Scott-Yeats

How can I, that girl standing there, my attention fix
On Roman or on Russian or on Spanish politics?
Yet here's a travelled man who knows what he talks about
And there's a politician that has read and thought.

And maybe what they say is true of war and war's alarms
But oh that I were young again and held her in my arms.
