O’Flannigan Stops A Snore
By Clancy O’Lafferty
O’Flannigan found a hotel
In Donnegal late one night.
He banged on the bell
And the clerk came down
Half awake and a pitiful sight.
O’Flannigan said, “I’ll be needin’ a room
For the night if you have one to spare.”
“The clerk said, “We don’t
But in four, there’s a bloke
With a double he won’t mind to share.
But of this I must give you fair warn,
The man has a god-awful snore.
He’ll keep you awake for sure an’ by gory
Has been the complaint before.
O’Flannigan said, “It’s alright,
I think I’ll make out just fine
The clerk was amazed
When O’Flannigan stated
“I’d like to stay one more night.”
“Well tell me now how did you sleep?
And what of the bloke with the snore?
How’d you manage shut eye
In the room with that guy
When none other has managed before?”
“I gave him a kiss on the cheek
And he stayed wide awake you can bet,
He watched me ‘til mornin’
While I did the snorin’
He’ll be passed out all day I should guess.”
