Murphy’s Golden Wedding Day

(Bold-faced words for the beat)

By Clancy O’Lafferty

Murphy and wife

Celebrated last night

On their golden anniversary day

Hundreds were there

All excited to share

In the Jameson Whiskey they were givin’ away

The Donnegal News

Held a fine interview

“How did you keep your hearts knit together?

To be fifty years wed

With neither one dead

How’d you make it through rough seas and weather?”

“Well, when we have a fight

We will stay up all night

And we won’t go to bed till it’s better

We had a fight once

We were up for eight months

Tryin’ to get the damn argument settled!”
