Fear not, lovely punkers, Shane MacGowan is not dead yet. But when he does kick off, I imagine it will be kicking AND screaming, and probably smashing with pub trays.
Text is from the lyrics of “The Sickbed of Cuchulainn:”
Then they’ll take you to Cloughprior and shove you in the ground
But you’ll stick your head back out and shout “We’ll have another round”
At the graveside of Cuchulainn we’ll kneel around and pray
And god is in his heaven, and Billy’s down by the bay
