Cold Winters Evening

(To the tune of 'She Was Just a Poor Man's Daughter')

'Twas a cold winter's evening
The guests were a-leavin'
O'Leary was closing the bar
When he turned and said
To the lady in red
“Get out! You can't stay where you are”

Oh she wept a sad tear
In her bucket of beer
As she though of the cold night ahead
When a gentleman dapper
Stepped out of the crapper
And these are the words he said

Her mother never taught her
The things that a young girl should know
About the ways of college men
And how they come and go (mostly go)
Age has stolen her beauty
And sin has left it's sad scar (you know where)
So, remember your mothers and sisters, boys
And let her sleep under the bar (with old Grandad)”
