    My Father's funeral song:

    My Way


    By Frank Sinatra














    And now the end is here
    And so I face that final curtain
    My friend I'll make it clear
    I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
    I've lived a life that's full
    I traveled each and every highway
    And more, much more
    I did it, I did it my way


    Regrets, I've had a few
    But then again too few to mention
    I did what I had to do
    I saw it through without exemption
    I planned each charted course
    Each careful step along the byway
    And more, much, much more
    I did it, I did it my way


    Yes, there were times I'm sure you knew
    When I bit off more than I could chew
    But through it all, when there was doubt
    I ate it up and spit it out
    I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way
    For what is a man, what has he got?
    If not himself then he has naught
    Not to say the things that he truly feels
    And not the words of someone who kneels
    Let the record shows I took all the blows and did it my way
    Lang may yer lum reek...

    That was one of the songs my dad would sing a cappella while driving to The Burren for weekends rock climbing. Remembering one of the cup finals I was upset at missing I would have been 8 years old.

    Shane and Christie do it well, but I wouldn't say better.

    Christy a great choice , Nancy Spain or Lisdoonvarna where my great crazy hard drinking driving rustling godmother's lot were from for the wake?



    How's it goin' there everybody,From Cork, New York, Dundalk, Gortahork and Glenamaddy.
    Here we are in the County Clare
    It's a long, long way from here to there.
    There's the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher,
    And the Tulla and the Kilfenora,
    Miko Russell, Doctor Bill,
    Willy Clancy and Noel Hill.
    Flutes and fiddles everywhere.
    If it's music you want,
    You should go to Clare.

    Oh, Lisdoonvarna
    Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoonvarna!

    Everybody needs a break,
    Climb a mountain or jump in a lake.
    Some head off to exotic places,
    Others go to the Galway Races.
    Mattie goes to the South of France,
    Jim to the dogs, Peter to the dance.
    A cousin of mine goes potholing,
    A cousin of here's loves Joe Dolan.
    Summer comes around each year,
    We go there and they come here.
    Some jet off to ... Frijiliana,
    But I always go to Lisdoonvarna.

    Oh, Lisdoonvarna
    Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoonvarna!

    I always leave on a Thursday night,
    With me tent and me groundsheet rolled up tight.
    I like to hit Lisdoon,
    In around Friday afternoon.
    This gives me time to get me gear together,
    I don't need to worry about the weather.
    Ramble in for a pint of stout,
    And you'd never know who'd be hangin' about!
    There's a Dutchman playing a mandolin,
    And a German looking for Liam Óg O'Floinn.
    And there's Adam, Bono and Garrett Fitzgerald,
    Gettin' their photos taken for the Sunday World.
    Finbarr, Charlie and Jim Hand,
    And they drinkin' pints to bate the band.
    Ain't it grand?

    Oh, Lisdoonvarna
    Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoonvarna!

    The multitudes, they flocked and thronged,
    To hear the music and the songs.
    Motorbikes and Hi-ace vans,
    With bottles - barrels - flagons - cans.
    Mighty craic. Loads of frolics,
    Pioneers and alcoholics,
    PLAC, SPUC and the FCA,
    Free Nicky Kelly and the IRA.
    Hairy chests and milk-white thighs,
    And mickey dodgers in disguise.
    Mc Graths, O'Briens, Pippins, Coxs,
    Massage parlours in horse boxes.
    There's amhráns, bodhráns, amadáns,
    Arab sheiks, Hindu Sikhs, Jesus freaks,
    RTE are makin' tapes, takin' breaks and throwin' shapes.
    This is heaven, this is hell.
    Who cares? Who can tell?
    (Anyone for the last few Choc Ices, now?)

    Oh, Lisdoonvarna
    Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoonvarna!

    A 747 for Jackson Browne,
    They had to build a special runway just to get him down.
    Before the Chieftains could start to play,
    Seven creamy pints came out on a tray.
    Shergar was ridden by Lord Lucan,
    Seán Cannon did the backstage cookin'.
    Clannad were playin' "Harry's Game",
    Christy was singin' "Nancy Spain".
    Mary O'Hara and Brush Shields,
    Together singin' "The Four Green Fields".
    Van the Man and Emmy Lou,
    Moving Hearts and Planxty too!

    Oh, Lisdoonvarna
    Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoonvarna!

    Everybody needs a break,
    Climb a mountain or jump in a lake.
    Sean Doherty goes to the Rose of Tralee,
    Oliver J. Flanagan goes swimming in the Holy Sea.
    But I like the music and the open air,
    So every Summer I go to Clare.
    Coz Woodstock, Knock nor the Feast of Cana,
    Can hold a match to Lisdoonvarna.

    Oh, Lisdoonvarna
    Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoonvarna

    Maybe the theme for Chariots of Fire. That being said I plan a quick cremation.
