murray@mpce.mq.edu.au Lyr Req: Are Ye Right There Michael (Percy French) (26) Are ye right Michael? 02 Feb 00


(1) There was an Irish Poet who was scheduled to give a reading and who took the train to the location(2). The train was so slow that it caused him to be so late he had to cancel the event. As a result he wrote a song which has its verse starting(3)

Are ye right, Michael
Are ye right
Do you think we'll get her home tonight?

Now the three questions are (1) Who was the poet? (2) Where was he going and on what (now defunct) train line? (3) What is the rest of the song?

This is not a test. I don't know the answers. I once heard the song. We are having a lot of trouble with the train service in Sydney at the moment and the song keeps knocking at my conciousness.

Thanks

Murray
