Lyrics

Six in the morning on the number five pier Nearly freezing myself to death Manny comes up behind me a warm and misty breath We put our gloves on and grab our tools Hey baby what took you so long The foreman’s getting mad and all the hoses and cables are already gone Into the dark, fire breathing monster Smoke and sparks, us against the steel Give me your hand, Manny I wanna tell you how I feel Three flights of ladders with a real heavy load Arc welder’s yellin “fire in the hole” Duck out on the scaffolding Manny’s laughing about getting drunk last night in Mexico I hang the pipes, he welds them all pretty Roll up the blue prints, cause everything’s tight For a lost little country girl He says I’m doing all right Into the dark, fire breathing monster Smoke and sparks, us against the steel Give me your hand, Manny I wanna tell you how I feel Out on the bow with the riggers and the seagulls Storm coming in, white caps on the bay Manny takes my hand, reads my palm, I’m in trouble I’m going straight to hell, but I’ll be in heaven on the way Lunch bell rings, time to light up the torches Speaking Portuguese and Spanish, English and Chinese I think half the world’s in that engine room But he’s the only thing I see, Manny and me Into the dark, fire breathing monster Smoke and sparks, us against the steel Give me your hand, Manny I wanna tell you how I feel
