    August Affair

    August Affair

    Sitting in the moonlit glow
    inside my head my memories flow
    Im whisked away now to one night
    August if my memories right
    In the square a few had gathered
    few drinks we had and we were bladdered
    With the jute box now in hand
    a midnight ramble we had planned
    Few more drinks we had acquired
    heading off we where inspired
    Up the road to curraghmore
    all the while now drinking more
    Over walls we had to climb
    the gates were locked now at this time
    Sitting now beneath the tree
    we rolled a joint our minds were free
    On this night the craic was mighty
    we played some tunes i got in blighty
    Soon our heads were filled with mischief
    what we done you won’t have missed it
    There used to be a wooden fence
    im talking now in past tense
    The creation that the poles now made
    would take you to the Celtic age
    Like i said the craic was mighty
    the moonlight everything so brightly
    To this day i still remember
    this was August not September
