Today was the kind of day,
Youâd invite me around for tea,
Tell me about your weekend, the ladies,
Your new job in Mayo, and your family.
The laugh we had in the back room,
When I fell asleep and your dogs drank my glass of whiskey,
Through tales of windsurfing trips,
From Lahinch to Castlegregory.
You were the boy who made me proud of me,
You were the man who made me proud of you,
Those long drives out to
Just to swim down at the Seapoints view.
Weâd swim out up to the rock and back,
Weâd swim until our âbitsâ turned blue,
Just to be out in your favourite place,
The middle of the ocean blue.
You taught me so much about so much,
The engineering stuff I didnât understand,
But when you spoke, I listened,
âCos you were such a gentleman.
When I spoke and joked, you listened too,
Sometimes even giggled like a girl,
So go and rest in peace my friend,
Now youâre the oceanâs pearl.
