Joan And Carmel
Since I've last seen them 21 years in time has gone
They soon will be forty the clock is ticking on
Married with children in Millstreet Parish Joan Cotter and Carmel Dinneen
It has been awhile now since they were nineteen.
Now well into mid life and the clock ticking away
For anyone time does not wait as some are known to say
Our young years go quickly and young we cannot stay
I wish Joan and Carmel a happy birthday.
Though since I've last seen them it does seem long ago
Two beautiful young women I felt privileged to know
Where have the years gone to time went so fast
And them I recall when I go to the past.
Though separated by distance and in years apart
Joan and Carmel retain a place in my heart
In Millstreet their children into adults will grow
Where the river Finnow to the Blackwater flow.
