with many many apologies to Irving Berlin

Irving Berlin – The Life Is Ended

My thoughts go back to a holiday dance
A moment of bliss we spent
Our hearts were filled with a song of romance
As into the pub we went
And drank to our hearts' content

The life is ended
But cadaverine lingers on
The little child is gone
But cadaverine lingers on

The night was splendid
And the melody seemed to say
"Money will pass away
Take your happiness while you may"

There 'neath the light of the moon
We drank some bottles, that ended too soon

The moon descended
And I found with the break of dawn
The little child had gone
But cadaverine lingers on

The song "I remember it well" - about two people with different memories of the same event - could perhaps also be adapted to suit the McCanns.

G I used the door
K You used the side
G I didn’t look
K You went inside
G Ah, yes, I remember it well

G We dined with friends
K No friends of mine
G We had some juice
K We had some wine
G Ah, yes, I remember it well

G That dazzling April moon !
K There was none that night
And the month was May
G That's right. That's right.
K It warms my heart to know that you
invent it still the way you do
G: Ah, yes, I remember it well

G How often I've thought of that Friday
K Thursday
G - night when we had our last sight
And somehow I foolishly wondered if you might
By some chance be thinking of it too ?

That pas-e-o
K You didn’t walk me home
G You were so riled
K I lost a child
G Ah, yes, I remember it well

That brilliant sky
K We had some rain
G: Those Russian ‘Tecs
K From sunny Spain
G: You wore a top of gold
K I was in jeans of blue

G Am I getting old?
K Oh, no, not you
How strong you were
How young and gay
A prince of love
In every way
K Ah, yes, I remember it well

But now you’ve changed
Become more hard
And lost your charm
(And credit card)
Your lip now curls
Your sneer is cruel
G Ah, yes, I know it too well
K And all because
You would not tell
The dreadful fate
Which M befell

G Ah, Yes, I regret it full well.
