There's only So much A man can take Heartbreak Heartbreak Heartbreak Heartbreak For goodness sake Ah just can't Dae right for wrong What a mess Ah make Heartbreak Heartbreak Ah'd be lyin If Ah said Ah wis a good man Ah'd be cryin If ye knew The truth Ah'd say sorry If a wis a real man But it seems That's somethin Ah'm not able Tae do Now yer cryin With yer head On ma shoulder A thorny rose Drops a petal Or two Ah'm the liar Who jist Got bolder Ah thought Ah'd win But losers Always lose Heartbreak Heartbreak The bookies take Is always More than You can lose Heartbreak Heartbreak The bookies take Is always More than You can lose

her ma met a man Her Ma met a man At the dancin Down at the Barrowlands He was handsome His smell was clean and sweet And his hands They were soft and dry His hair was combed and neat You could see your face In the shoes upon his feet His shirts were whiter Than a brand new cotton sheet And her Ma had said His suits were made by hand But her Da was the best Even though his hair Was always a mess He never shaved And he could'nae care less If his socks were odd And shirts were less than white Ever since he left She's had a stream of Uncles That loved her Ma the best They always left her In a babbling greetin mess And sometimes Even with a blackened eye Her Da left on the Monday Her Ma'd a new man by the Sunday On her airm She said Somebody's got to love me I just need someone to love me I'm daen nae hairm But it broke the wee wain's heart To hear her Ma being called a tart In the school playground It wis'nae long before he left Mr Perfect and her Ma the mess Back on the merry go round The merry go round She walked the city streets Lookin for her Da In every pub that she'd Been stood ootside With crisps and juice Whilst inside he Drank until the money It ran dry She found him in a mess Sat on a pavement Wi his troosers hangin Off his arse Tryin tae roll a fag Wi his hat between his legs Catching pennies Fae passer's by He said "An Angels come to save me Sent by the Virgin Mary Tae save ma life" She said "Da I've come to take ye Back hame tae Ma She's lost without ye And ye need yer wife" So they clambered up the stairs Crashed through the door Into her Mother's airms There they laughed and cried "I'd rip ma heart oot Fae neath this vest Ye know I love ye Much mair than the rest If you'd just realise If you'd just realise" The wee wains heart did fly As a tear ran doon her Mother's eye When she held his hands And said "Danny I've alway's loved you There's many a man that's tried to love me Only done me hairm Only done me hairm" And so the story goes Time it healed them And the wee wain's spirit rose To see the love between them Grow and grow and grow And grow and grow and grow and grow and grow

about

"danny and jeannie" is a collection of songs based around the two characters.
They are an under privileged couple from the West of Scotland living a fairly earthy life with all the temptations and challenges that can offer. The songs give snapshots of this life, delivered in a stripped down story telling fashion.
