Years passed, that’s the thing about life
Nothing’s easy – he broke up from his wife
Darkness set in – there was no growth
A difficult time – difficult for both.
Little by little he rejected being lonely
He finally met a girl called Morley
She appeared – as though sent from above
And Johnny O’ Brien fell deeply in love.
In April, under the New Zealand sky
They declared their love ‘till the day they’d die”
I got no invitation – don’t worry – it’s fine
‘Though I distinctly remember inviting you to mine!
Let us raise our glasses to this extraordinary man
And drink his health – while we still can
Long happy years of love, hard work and play
Johnny Old Pal – Happy Birthday!
