The Former Pride Of Macroom
Back in the mid sixties she was in her life's bloom
But where is she today the former Pride of Macroom
I know she left Macroom but did she return to there to stay
Or has she been ageing from there far away
Or does her bones forever in eternal rest lay?
What did become of her i for one cannot say
Back in the mid sixties this is going back in time
She was quite a beauty in her physical prime
But the nineteen sixties now seems long ago
And time as we know becomes everyone's foe
Did she give birth to chidren or become someone's partner or wife
Or as childless and single is she growing old in life
Or is she ever at rest in or far from Macroom?
Back in the nineteen sixties she was in her life's bloom.
