Toots Hibbert # Leonard Cohen & THE CURE

Wee Man now sleeps
No more to stunt
Brave and foolhardy
Blissfully blunt
Sparks in the darkness
And barrel top wagons
Back to when Bulmers
Sold cider in flagons
Just off West Cork
Fishing for skate
Whopping great monsters
Mackerel for bait
Hewing my wood
Some glow for the winter
Goodbye to a champ
Slán leat Alan Minter
Autumn dear Autumn
In sweet Garryowen
Soft on the breeze
I hear Leonard Cohen
Lovely Toots Hibbert
The prince from Jamaica
Playing his tunes
On high with his maker
Heaps of eye liner
Hardly demure
Friday’s for love
Whack on THE CURE.

Slán for now…Sláinte.
