"Serious" as written by and Damien Dempsey....
Go on, why don't you try it out?
I don't know, my head's filled with doubt
Ah, go on, a little bit won't hurt
When you feel the whack of it, you'll see it's well worth it

Go on, give it a blast, in ten seconds flat you'll feel fantastic
Your head will be like rubber, your body like elastic
You'll be in God's arms with your thoughts all derelict
I don't know, I think it's fuckin' mad
That shit killed Anto Kelly's mom and dad

Ah, you're being all windy on me now
I was told you were handy when it came to a row
Fuckin' sure I am, ask anybody
I burst Paddy Lee last fuckin' Saturday

Don't be silly, man, sit down
All the boys is blasting off and they're all sound
Are you serious? Is he sound over there?
He's about to disappear into thin fuckin? air

Ah, man, you're lettin? me down
I thought you were the dirt of a lad around town
You won't get strung your first time doing it
It takes loads of times before you can't stop abusing it

Your dad doesn't care, he's drunk in the bar
Seen your ma headin' off in some strange fella's car
I have been feelin? really low lately
Feel the whole fuckin? world is against me and they hate me

Think I'll head home, I don't like this room
There's a bad smell of piss and the ceiling's peeling
Before you go, here's a freebie
Go home to your bed and you'll sleep like a baby
Ah, maybe

Serious, I'm afraid
There's a devil in the shade
Serious, I am scared
There's a devil in my head

Go on, man, get some of this shit into you
It's not gonna kill you, get it into you, sit here
And, oh, man, [Incomprehensible] of all that stuff
I seen Jem Quinn and what he's gone through in prison and all

Ah, man he's a fuckin? eejit, he's just stupid
That wouldn't happen to you
You know, you never know, man, I seen so many around
I seen all the heads around town goin? down

Ah, man, you're wimping out on me here
I thought you were a hard man with no fuckin? fear
I am, man, I fuckin? am
You saw me stickin? out that O'Connor kid
I fuckin? hopped off of him

Ah, rowin' is different, man, you know what I mean
Any fuckin? [Incomprehensible], that's all Babog shit
You'll see [Incomprehensible] when you take a hit

Serious, I'm afraid
There's a devil in the shade
Serious, I am scared
There's a devil in my head

Angel, come and save me
Angel, come and help me
Angel, come and save me
Angel, come and help me

    Lyric CorrectionThis is more readable and I fixed the incomprehensible parts.


    Go on, why don't you try it out?
    I don't know, my head's filled with doubt
    Ah, go on, a little bit won't hurt
    When you feel the whack of it, you'll see it's well worth it
    Go on, give it a blast, in ten seconds flat you'll feel fantastic
    Your head will be like rubber, and your body like elastic
    You'll be in God's arms with your thoughts all derelict
    I don't know, I think it's fuckin' mad
    That shit killed Anto Kelly's mam and dad
    Ah, you're being all windy on me now
    I was told you were handy when it came to a row
    Fuckin' sure I am, ask anybody

    Serious, I'm afraid There's a devil in the shade
    Serious, I am scared There's a devil in my head

    Go on, man, get some of this shit into you
    It's not gonna kill you, get it into you, Synthia
    Ah don't know man, I'm fairly wary of all that stuff
    I seen Jem Quinn and what he's gone through in prison and all
    Ah, man he's a fuckin eejit,
    he's just stupid That wouldn't happen to you
    Ahh, you never know, man, I seen so many around
    I seen all the heads around town goin down
    Ah, man, you're wimping out on me here
    I thought you were a hard man with no fuckin fear
    I am man, I fuckin am You saw me stickin out that O'Connor kid I fuckin hopped off of him
    Ah, brown' is different, man, you know what I mean
    Any fuckin sap can row, that's all Babog shit
    You'll see what I mean when you take a hit

    (Chorus)
    Serious, I'm afraid There's a devil in the shade
    Serious, I am scared There's a devil in my head

    Angel, come and save me
    Angel, come and help me
    Angel, come and save me
    Angel, come and help me
