Nancy Mulligan – Ed Sheeran

I was twenty-four years old
When I met the woman I would call my own
Twenty-two grand kids now growing old
In that house that your brother bought ya

On the summer day when I proposed
I made that wedding ring from dentist gold
And I asked her father, but her daddy said, “No
You can’t marry my daughter”

She and I went on the run
Don’t care about religion
I’m gonna marry the woman I love
Down by the Wexford border

She was Nancy Mulligan
And I was William Sheeran
She took my name and then we were one
Down by the Wexford border

Well, met her at Guy’s in the second world war
And she was working on a soldier’s ward
Never had I seen such beauty before
The moment that I saw her

Nancy was my yellow rose
And we got married wearing borrowed clothes
We got eight children now growing old
Five sons and three daughters

She and I went on the run
Don’t care about religion
I’m gonna marry the woman I love
Down by the Wexford border

She was Nancy Mulligan
And I was William Sheeran
She took my name and then we were one
Down by the Wexford border

From her snow white streak in her jet black hair
Over sixty years I’ve been loving her
Now we’re sat by the fire in our old armchairs
You know Nancy, I adore ya

From a farm boy born near Belfast town
I never worried about the king and crown
‘Cause I found my heart upon the southern ground
There’s no difference, I assure ya

She and I went on the run
Don’t care about religion
I’m gonna marry the woman I love
Down by the Wexford border

She was Nancy Mulligan
And I was William Sheeran
She took my name and then we were one
Down by the Wexford border

Is this life really worth it?

I mean, seriously:

  • Waking up early in the morning
  • Leaving home on time but being stuck in the traffic every f****ng day!
  • Being late almost every day
  • And then in the office: I do my job and your colleagues one because: one is sick, one is not capable and one.. is just an asshole and think that his time is more precious than yours!
  • When you think that day is finally over, take the bus again and… Be stuck again in the traffic and reach home just one hour and a half later (home-work distance: 30-40 minutes)
  • Ah and don’t we forget that I supposed to work in a office not on shift but as your colleague change everyday her plans you have to follow… Yes true sometime I ask to change timing as well but c’mon no so often.. I feel like I am on shift again!

Seriously guys, I know I am not the only one in this situation but I have been living here in London for more than 3 years now and I am just exhausted, especially if we talk about all this and I still don’t have money because London, as everybody know, is bloody expensive and at the same time I don’t have my family, my friends, my everything!

I don’t know if I can continue this life! London you are beautiful but you are taking my mental health!
