Oh, Brandy, Leave Me Alone CHO: Oh, brandy, leave me alone, Oh, brandy, leave me alone, Oh, brandy, leave me alone: Remember, I must go home. My sweetheart would never know me If she could only see me now, With a drink in my hand, And a frown on my brow. (chorus) I tried talking to her father To put a good word in for me, But her father said, "No, sir, You're no son for me." (chorus) THe song you are looking for is O BRANDEWYN LAAT MY STANN The book is Suid-Afrika se eie Lieddjies= South Africa's own songs The problem is that they only give the chorus as follows and none of the verses. Over there it is one of the old trad songs equal to On Top of Old Smokey [AS] O brandewyn laat my Staan (3x) want ek wil nou Huis toe Gaan THis translates as O Brandy wine let me stand what I will now house to go [ I now want to go home] BS APR99
