Freddie # Jimmy Kennedy # John Lennon

Hay ropes being turned
In sheds in Drumshanbo
Then in to the fire
Strong tea and fresh sambos
O’Reilly from Meath
Was singing Matt Hyland
Diving for crabs
A mile off Clare Island
Autumn’s soft shades
Enchanting Rathvilly
A poet’s lost dreams
No gilding of lilies
Freddie on vocals
Opera-like Queen
Wembley was awesome
The best ever seen
Red sails in the Sunset
Way out on the bay
An Irishman’s lyrics
Down Mexico Way
With Dom Perignon
I’m double O Seven
A fine Montecristo
Be Godn that’s heaven
Beatle John Lennon
Is four score today
Peace? Just Imagine
And love all the way.

Beidh mé ar ais…Sláinte.
