Brandy
Looking Glass Lyrics


There's a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time away
And talk about their homes

And there's a girl in this harbor town
And she works layin' whiskey down
They say. "Brandy, fetch another round"
She serves them whiskey and wine

The sailors say, "Brandy, you're a fine girl
(You're a fine girl)
What a good wife you would be
(Such a fine girl)
Yeah, your eyes
Could steal a sailor from the sea"

Brandy wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the north of Spain
A locket that bears the name
Of a man that Brandy loved

He came on a summer's day
Bringing gifts from far away
But he made it clear he couldn't stay
No harbor was his home

The sailor said, "Brandy, you're a fine girl
(You're a fine girl)
What a good wife you would be
(Such a fine girl)
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea"

Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told his sailor's story
She could feel the ocean fall and rise
She saw its raging glory
But he had always told the truth
Lord, he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand

At night when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves a man who's not around
She still can hear him say

She hears him say, "Brandy, you're a fine girl
(You're a fine girl)
What a good wife you would be
(Such a fine girl)
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea
It is, yes, it is"

He said, "Brandy, you're a fine girl
(You're a fine girl)
What a good wife you would be
(Such a fine girl)
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea
It is, it is, yes, it is"

I envy you, got a lot of amazing bands to hear for the first time.

Here's my suggestions to get you started on where to explore(I grew up on 70's music from my parents but my taste is a little late 70's-early 80's):

Supertramp
Thin Lizzy (Dancing the Moonlight, trust me if you never have)
Dire Straits
Earth, Wind and Fire
Van Moorison
The Doors
Led Zeppelin
CCR
The Byrds
Buffalo Springfield
The Band
The Eagles
Three Dog Night


I mean I could go on, an amazing time period where even more unheard of bands were still amazing, you could, and people have spent entire lives just exploring all music produced in era of classic vinyl, and early cassette rock.

Listen to recommendations but importantly stray off the beaten path from time to time.

There's a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time away

And there's a girl in this harbor town

She serves them whiskey and wine

I absolutely love this song. It's like a movie telling a story, but in just a few minutes. You can picture Brandy, the sailor she loves, the ship, the ocean, the bar...

I like to think Brandy is actually brandy as in alcohol that he is personifying

I bet this song is the reason so many girls born in the 70s were named Brandy.
