Song Lyrics

Valentino got a bookie shop and what he takes
He gives for what he's got
And what he's got, he says he has not
Stole from anyone

It's not that he don't tell the truth
Or even that he misspent his youth
It's just he holds the proof
But you know some thing's wrong

Waiting for an alibi
(Waiting for an alibi)
Waiting for an alibi
(Waiting for an alibi)

Valentino's in a cold sweat
Placed all his money on that last bet
Against all the odds he smokes another cigarette
Says it helps him to forget he's a nervous wreck

It's not that he misses much
Or even that he lost his lucky touch
It's just he gambles so much
And you know that it's wrong

Waiting for an alibi
(Waiting for an alibi)
Waiting just to catch your eye
Waiting for an alibi
(Waiting for an alibi)
Try to say I told you, I told you

(Waiting for an alibi)
Waiting just to get you
(Waiting for an alibi)
Waiting for an alibi

Valentino got nowhere to go
On his own like Romeo
Blow by blow he watches his money go
Now he's oh so low

It's not that he misses her
Or even that he can't resist her
It's just that kissing her
He feels so strong

Waiting for an alibi
(Waiting for an alibi)
Waiting for an alibi

Waiting just to hold you
Waiting for an alibi
(Waiting for an alibi)
Just to say I told you
Waiting for an alibi
Waiting for an alibi
Oh my, my, my, my, my, my

Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Two of the founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist and vocalist Phil Lynott, met while still in school. Lynott assumed the role of frontman and led them throughout their recording career of twelve studio albums. Thin Lizzy's most successful songs, "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" and "The Boys Are Back in Town", were all major international hits which are still played regularly on hard rock and classic rock radio stations. After Lynott's death in 1986, various incarnations of the band have emerged over the years based initially around guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes, though Sykes left the band in 2009. Gorham later continued with a new line-up including Downey.
