O’Toole And His Granny’s Will
By Clancy O’Lafferty
O’Toole was named in a will,
He went to his granny’s wake.
He prayed to the Lord God Almighty
sleep on and never awake.
“Oh Lord, don’t let her sit up
and give all us folks a scare.
I want the three count in that coffin, oh God,
I’ll do want you want, I swear!”
His granny she never sat up,
O’Toole went to hear the will.
His cousins were all getting money and land
they were smilin’ and drinkin’ their fill.
He sat on the edge of his seat.
When at last was it read for O’Toole.
“Your granny has paid in advance
your tuition for three years of Bible school!”
