"Devil's Dance Floor" as written by and David R King Bridget A Regan....
Her breath began to speak as she stood right in front of me
The color of her eyes were the color of insanity
Crushed beneath her wave like a ship, I could not reach her shore
We're all just dancers on the devil's dance floor

Well, swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the devil's dance floor

Pressed against her face I could feel her insecurity
Her mother'd been a drunk and her father was obscurity
But nothin' ever came from a life that was a simple one
So pull yourself together girl and have a little fun

Well she took me by the hand I could see she was a fiery one
Her legs ran all the way up to heaven and past Avalon
Tell me somethin' girl, what it is you have in store, she said
Come with me now on the devil's dance floor

Well, swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the devil's dance floor
Swing a little more, on the devil's dance floor

Well, swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the devil's dance floor

The apple now is sweet, oh, much sweeter than it ought to be
Another little bite, I don't think there is much hope for me
The sweat beneath her brow travels all the way an' headin' south
This bleedin' heart's cryin', 'cause there's no way out

Well, swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the devil's dance floor

Well, swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the devil's dance floor
Swing a little more, on the devil's dance floor
Swing a little more, on the devil's dance floor

    General Commentthe lyrics are "swing a little more, a little more o'er the merry-o." they're easily confused what with the Irish accent, but these are the correct ones.
    this song makes me want to take Irish dancing lessons. plus, maybe the know what the hell a merry-o is or how to get over it.

    General CommentI must say, when I first heard this song, it caught my attention very quickly. It has to be one of the best F.M. songs. I can't wait until Warped Tour so I can see em live!

    General CommentI'm a huge flogging molly fan, and I donn't know about when skatoonist sazzy said when she said they sucked live. Cuz at wharped tour in Tinley park the band got more attention than any other band in the whole place. Seeing concerts is my life and that was one of the best ever! Everybody went nuts. It was a bunch of drunk Irish dudes going insane on stage but still sounding great. You can't beat that

    General Commentsweet catastrophe, i am a crazy mood. in fact, you know that little guy that sits on your shoulder, just as you're about to throw a brick through a window, and whispers "just do it, don't think of the consequences, they're nothing compared to the thrill, and those doubts will just slow you down, just DO IT NOW!!!" well, i'm not him. but i am his cabana boy. and as his personal representative, i have to say this song, and all you crazy kids brings tears to his eyes, he's so proud. *sniff*

    General CommentWhoo! Flogging molly is an awesome band.. and they put on a great live show. : D I love this song. and all their songs for that matter.. such an awesome band.. but they are begginging to get really popular and really fast. Which isnt good.. cause now they dont do any street fairs anymore: ( I hope they just do not get too big..

    But still an amazingly super awesome band.
