Incorrect, sorry! It's FORTY shades of Green.....

Forty Shades of Green
Johnny Cash
I close my eyes and picture the emerald of the sea
from the fishin boats at Dingle to the shores at Dunehea
I miss the River Shannon and the folks at Skibbereen
the moorlands and meadows and their Forty Shades of Green

But most of all I miss a girl in Tipperary town
and most of all I miss her lips as soft as eiderdown
I long again to see and do the things we've done and seen
where the breeze is sweet as shalimar and there's Forty Shades of Green

I wish that I could spend an hour at Dublin's churning surf
I long to watch the farmers drain the bogs and spade the turf
to see again the thatching of the straw the women clean
I'd walk from Cork to Larne to see those Forty Shades of Green

But most of all I miss a girl in Tipperary town
and most of all I miss her lips as soft as eiderdown
I long again to see and do the things we've done and seen
where the breeze is sweet as shalimar and there's Forty Shades of Green

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Ah you missed a really good night Strum, jeez poor Grammer & the lads didn't stand a chance with the girls nearly taking over. Some great singers and the Poem was just Brilliant, Thank's to V ;)



A Little Pub in London

- By J. Kerr -

In a little pub in London, Moriarity drank his beer,
And recited wondrous stories of his exploits far & near,
“Sing an Irish Song” said Kelly, “best of order one & all”,
Moriarity sang for them – The Hills of Donegal.



There was cheering at the finish, they called, “Encore, Encore”.
Moriarity said, “Listen lads, I can’t sing anymore.”
He stood there sad & silent & gazed into is beer,
And in his eyes there glistened, the starting of the tear.

“Are you going home for Christmas?” the kindly barmaid said,
But Moriarity fixed his gaze on her & slowly shook his head,
“Sure I haven’t been to Ireland now for twenty years or more,
My Mother would hardly know me if I walked up to the door.

“I was born”, said Moriarity, “on an island off the West,
The last place God created & the first one that he blessed,
My Father, God be good to him, was drowned one woeful night,
My Mother left all lonesome, & myself to work & fight.”

“So with Donald Rua McCarthy & Michael Og O’Shea,
we came across to England to earn & honest pay,
I told my dear old Mother I’d soon be home again,
But the curse of drink came o’er me & enslaved me in its chain.

Sure I haven’t been to Ireland now for twenty years or more.
But I know she’s still there waiting for my footsteps at the door,”
Then someone started singin’ – See Amid the Winter Snow,
It was like an old bell ringin’ far away & long ago.

Moriarity stood there silent & pushed his glass away,
And made a solemn promise he’d go home for Christmas Day.
So he scraped up every penny he could get into his hand,
And coming up to Christmas he sailed for Ireland;.

His heart was filled with gladness he felt content at last,
As the train rolled through the midlands & brought him to the west,
In the village of Kinsheelan that night upon the shore.
Far across the deep blue waters, he saw his island home once more.

The stars they shone so brightly, how they glistened like a dome,
On that little whitewashed cottage, that was Moriarity’s home.
“Tis a grand night for the sailin'” said the boatman, Thomas Bawn,
But Moriarity didn’t know him he’d been away so long.

As he climbed into the baidin, the boatman heard him say,
“Thank God, Thank God in heaven, I’ll be home for Christmas Day,”
In a little room in London, in Moriarity’s poor abode,
On a table in the hallway a message lay untold.

And in it read, “Dear Danny, your poor Mother has passed away,
She’ll be buried in Kinsheelan after Mass on Christmas Day…”

I have been asked by Yvonne, owner of Jack's Music Bar to put this up here. "Our 1916 night we're putting on next Sat 28th May, The Raging Hormones are on, the Proclamation is being read plus there's a band on. There is no cover charge in."

Just for those who don't know Jack's, it is situated in the Christian Institute on George's Street Dun Laoghaire. Also The Raging Hormones have our very own Snowhite in a starring role during their performance.

Went to hear The Whiffenpoofs, an A Cappella Group from Yale University, in the Maritime
Museum on Saturday night. They were a great group, unfortunately the audience was very
small.
Then my pal and I headed to Jack's Bar and it was great. A fantastic night out was had by
the two of us.

Hope whoever got to see the show on Saturday in the Club enjoyed it, Sorry I couldn't be there it overlapped by a day with my Holiday :( and I only heard today one of the other girls were sick on the night and didn't make it either, but the show must go on as they say and one of the girls stepped in with only an hour to the show to learn her part. wuu wuu wuu
