Lyrics

Because the lyrics are not included in our album covers, we put them here for you, as well as the story of how we came by our version of the songs. Before you read the stories, you should know that Sophie and Margot know each other from an Irish session at an Amsterdam pub called Mulligans. This place comes up in all our stories because it was very influential for The Lasses. Many thanks to its owner Miriam Feuth for giving Irish and traditional music such a warm and welcome stage in Amsterdam.
