Today is her birthday.
No not Ms. America.
Ironic she was born in Ireland.
Her Mom told her long ago….
“You’re so sickly you’ll live to be 90”.
Worked in London in 1945.
In the only building left standing for 3 km.
She went dances.
Upstairs ballroom, downstairs Irish
Seems the Irish were always downstairs
Came across the Atlantic on a ship in 1954
Had a room downstairs
Dragged the pram up those stairs everyday
Wanted me to get fresh air
Always had good intentions for me
Learn you times tables
Do the dishes
Get a paper route
I see fireworks in the sky
