Perhaps Metallica’s version isn’t better, but it’s epic in the listening pleasure it has to offer. Whiskey in the Jar isn’t by Thin Lizzy; an Irish folk song as old as the hills, its been recorded by artists from The Dubliners to Peter, Paul & Mary, and its origins predate recorded music itself. But it’s pretty clear that Metallica’s 1998 cover is an ode to Thin Lizzy’s hit 1972 single It helps that the source material was created by the great songwriting team of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman and that their arrangement is so spare and open that it could be easily adapted for a rocksteady beat and Dave Wakeling’s blue-eyed soul vocalizing.

Better Than That Lyrics. You’re just another in a long line of men she screwed Just another in a long line of men she knew Oh yeah she did, yeah she did what she wanted to do Like all the boys before Another dream come true. It’s a power, it’s a power, it’s a power move And while I’m not quite sure what she’s trying to prove They all say she’s got low self-esteem So, why is she looking like a cat who got the cream? But you, you can do better than You can do better than that. She’s the apple of everybody’s eye With an angel voice Devil in disguise Got a sour face like a poisoned fruit That the boys can taste ’til they’re out of use. And she'll network ’til her dreams come true Even if it means getting into bed with you Everybody’s friend, does it ring a bell? I know a little too much but I'll never tell.
