Chorus

Put on your old knee britches and your coat of emerald green
Take off that hat me darling Pat, put on your old cáibín
For today’s or Golden Wedding and I’ll have you all to know
Just how we looked when we were wed fifty years ago.

Oh well I do remember how we danced on the village green
You held me in your arms dear Pat and called me your colleen
Your hair was like a raven’s wing but now it’s turning grey
Come over here my sweetheart dear and hear what I’ve to say.

Chorus

Oh well do I remember when first I was your bride
In the little chapel on the hill where we stood side by side
Of good friends we’ve had plenty, of troubles we’ve had few
Come over here my sweetheart dear and here’s what you must do.
