50 Ale

We gulped a gallon of 50 Ale

While listening to the beats of 50 cents

Marking a golden anniversary

On Waverley Street we read a map

 

We bagged a handful of five-ohs

Blaring a censure in our  halos

When cruising the routes in Winnipeg

Above the  fifty you’re pegged

 

Abba Simon is gone they said to us

And so are the fifty popes before

It won’t be great drinking your way

While paying the toll to the great beyond.
