It’s a Great Day for the Irish

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Even though I found one child (Danny) in his bed this morning covered in crusty, dried barf who then sobbed through his entire bath and then clung to my neck for dear life and wiped his nose all over my green shirt, still, as the song says, it’s a great day to be Irish!

Note – The photos of four happy people wearing clean clothes were NOT taken this morning!

It’s a Great Day For the Irish
Oh, I woke me up this morning and I heard a joyful song
From the throats of happy Irishmen, a hundred thousand strong
Sure it was the Hibernian Brigade
Lining up for to start the big parade
So I fetched me Sunday bonnet and the flag I love so well
And I bought meself a shamrock just to wear in me lapel
Don’t you know that today’s March seventeen?
It’s the day for the wearing of the green.

It’s a great day for the Irish, it’s a great day for fair
The side-walks of New York are thick with Blarney
For sure you’d think New York was Old Killarney

Begosh and begorragh, every Irish son and daughter
Every good old Irish name and their relation
They come from Tipperary, Donegal and County Kerry,
They are all here to join the celebration.

There’s Connolly and Donnelly, Ryan, O’Brien,
McLoughlin and Lynch, Pat Flannigan, McFadden, McPhearson and Finch
Hogan and Logan, Fitzpatrick, O’Bannigan, Danny O’Doole and Seamus O’Tool!

It’s a great day for the Shamrock, for the flags in full array
We’re feeling so inspirish, sure because for all the Irish
It’s a great, great day.

It’s a great day for the Irish, it’s a great day for fair
Begosh, there’s not a cop to stop a raiding
Begorrah all the cops are out parading
It’s a great day for the Shamrock, for the flags in full array
And as we go a-swinging, every Irish heart is singing
It’s a great, great day.
