Bella donna´s on the hi-F-gh street -C- Her breasts upon the o-F-ff beat -C- And the stalls are just the si[F]de shows -C- Victoriana´s o-F-ld clothes -C- And yes her jeans are ti-F-ght now -C- She gotta travel li-F-ght now -C- She´s gotta tear up all her ro-F-ots now -C- She got a turn up for the bo-F-ots now -C- -F-Yeah she thinks she´s tough She ain´t no english ro-C-se -F-But the blind singer He´s seen enough and he kno-C-ws -Bb-Yes and he do a song About a lo-F-ng gone Irish gi-C-rl -Bb-Ah but I got one for you -F- Portobello be-C-ll
VERSE II
She sees a man upon his back there Escaping from a sack there And bella donna lingers Her gloves they got no fingers Yeah, the blind man singing Irish He get his money in a tin dish Just a corner serenader Upon a time he could have made her, made her
Yeah she thinks she´s tough She ain´t no english rose But the blind singer He´s seen enough and he knows Yes and do a song About a long gone Irish girl Ah but I got one for you Portobello bell
VERSE III
Yes and the barrow boys are hawking And a parakeet is aquawking Upon a truck there is a rhino She get the crying of a wino And then she hear the reggae rumble Bella donna´s in the jungle But she in no garden flower There is no distress in the tower Oh, bella donna walks Bella donna taking a stroll But she don´t care about your window box Or your button hole Yes and she sing a song about a long gone Irish girl Ah but I got one for you Portobello belle.
