MURIEL AND THE JUNIOR NCO
It was fifty years ago
in the midst of winter snow
two hearts were all aglow
though they lived on little dough!
Muriel kept the family home
whilst to Wainwright Tom would roam
Together they weathered storms and strife
raised a family and had a good life
Congratulations to Muriel and Tom
may your lives continue to be long
May your grandchildren sing your song
and may their marriages be as strong!!!!!!
