I Wish

Band songlist

Info

I Wish is a Babyshambles song that features as track #3 on The Blinding EP. Much of the original song is thought to have been written by Mik Whitnall rather than Peter Doherty. The track was first heard when Babyshambles released a set of 4 songs on their French Dog Blues website, known as the Paris Rehearsals. A version of this song has also been released with Whitnall on vocals, as a B Side to the single Delivery. The B Side version received mixed reviews from fans.

In 2006, Drew McConnell played a version of I Wish on acoustic guitar on the Rory McConnell radio show for the BBC, as part of a 2-song set.

When a photograph of what appeared to be a tracklisting for Doherty's solo album leaked in January 2006, after Peter's New Year's eve guerrilla gig, "I Wish" was listed as track #8.

Lyrics

oh-oh-oh-ooooooooh-oooh-oooh
oh-oh-ooooohh

I sit alone almost every night
I watch those trains roll on by...out of sight
I know it's not the same old story
it's new to me...Iíd say so
it's not the only way to be

work in town and nothing for free
nothing left in this place for
likes of me out
I wish to god
just wish that I

got no money in my pocket you see
oh oh gimme no gimme no gimme no gimme no ah!
no money in my pockets you see
oh oh gimme no gimme no gimme no gimme no ah!

not the same old story
it's new to me
i would say so
but the only way to be

Iím pipiní almost every night
I watch my dreams float by...out of sight
I wish to god but I just been stabbed oh
Alright George Deaver!

oh-oh-oh-ooooh-oh
oh-oh-oh-ooooh-oh
oh-oh-oh-ooooh-oh

got no money in my pocket you see
oh oh gimme no gimme no gimme no gimme no ah!
no money in pockets you see
oh gimme no gimme no gimme no gimme no

not the same old story
it's new to me
I would say so
but the only way to be

Iím pipiní almost every night
I watch my dreams float by...out of sight
I wish to god but I just been stabbed ooh
Alright George Deaver!

gimme no
oh-oh-oh-ooooooooh-oooh-oooh x4
