Lyrics:


Beirut

Arak drinkin'
Card playin'

Race Horse cheerin'


Pigeon huntin'


The essence of Beirut

Seduction crowd


Cruisin' around

Foolin' about


Tis' all there is on the minds

Of the citizens of Beirut

Beirut
 A flower off its terrain
Beirut

Oh her beauty, her good old days
Beirut


That dire end, all a waste


Withering

All unemployed

Hopeless, ruined and Rusted

Jinxed and accursed

Those dealers of Beirut

Oh the strutting

That fancy livin'

Excess of splurging

Exploded vanity

Smothering Beirut
