Brandy
Red Hot Chili Peppers 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"
(Dooda-dit-dooda)
(Dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

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

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

The sailor saidn "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 lover, my lady is the sea"
(Dooda-dit-dooda)
(Dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told his sailor stories
She could feel the ocean foam rise
She saw its ragin' glory

But he had always told the truth, lord, he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand
(Dooda-dit-dooda)
(Dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

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 lover, my lady is the sea"
(Dooda-dit-dooda)
(Dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

"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 lover, my lady is the sea"

Kiedis is the only person that could ever lead this band... he's not a classicaly trained singer, and hes not always on key (as people love to point out) but you can find someone in american idol who can stay on key. Kiedis's voice is just perfect to me, nobody does it like him

@Wade White Yes because he’s the frontman of one, if not the most successful alternative rock bands of all time

Wade White

There's 4 people to praise in this band and you choose Kiedies

John Small

singers with "bad" technique sound mad, jimi hendrix and lemmy dont sing "properly" but they sound top knotch

Couldn't agree more Nick, Tony is irreplaceable when it come's to a Chilli Pepper frontman, it just wouldn't work w/o him. Actually, this core four, Anthony, Chad, Flea & John, they mesh together so well & compliment one another so beautifully it would be nothing short of heartbreak for me to have to see any kinda lineup change @ this juncture in the game. We've been down that road before & were somehow fortunate enough to find our way back to the bizarre, symmetrical Beauty that is RHCP. These guy's man, (speechless) I Love em' ! They're such a positive constant in my Life, how do you thank someone for something like that..? Amazing Band, Amazing Bunch of Guys...🌶🖤♾

I find myself coming back to this video constantly. I love this cover

Jacob Massey

Same here. If I've had a bad day or am feeling low I come here to watch 5 middle age men just loving life singing possibly one of the most uplifting songs ever written.

Claire, I stumbled on this while looking for the best copy from Looking Glass to add to my library.
I heard this and stopped looking! VERY WELL DONE.
This song has a lot of sentimental value to me. I was just a 17 year old kid raised in the mountains of Colorado when I joined the US Navy. On my deployments faaaaar away I would think of this song but I was thinking of just how much I truly loved my childhood in those beautiful mountains! This song got me through some really rough times!

SuPete

@Brett Wright totally agree! Awesome cover!!

Brett Wright

Claire Danielle this is the only cover I think outrocks the original. And, I love the Looking Glass version! Just a damn good song!
