You're a bit of an aul wan to be sure
You're not the full aul wan yet, but we'll be seeing you in Bingo on Tuesday nights soon enough - which is what constitutes a midweek night out for you these days. Sure you'd be worn out by the young people's constant gallivanting.

You're not really an aul wan at all
You've a fair few years to go in you yet before you become an aul wan. Away and watch your Net Flicks on the computer and don't be waking me when you come home from the town after 11 tonight.

You're just a young wan
Get away out it, young wan. You were probably out until all hours last night gallivanting and getting on with your new friends. Sure you wouldn't know what it was like to be indoors before the midnight hour.
