The Lyrics

Ah, Saint Patrick's Day. Where the green beer flows like wine. Bad decisions a-plenty and debauchery for all. Not bad for a guy who drove all the snakes out of Ireland. Original Song
You need a drink (drink!)
Drink it down and do not forget your green
Drink (drink, drink)
Let good times roll on March seventeenth

Celebrate St. Patrick,
Let’s go and have a big ol’ bash
Have corned beef and cabbage,
Then wash it down with some Jameson (wash it down!)
You don’t have to be Irish,
Just wear a button, says “Kiss Me…”
It’s all fun, but let me warn you...
You’ll get pinched if you don’t wear green!

You need to drink (drink)
Grab a pint, if you’re feeling a bit lucky
Then drink (drink, drink)
And engage in some debauchery

Oh drink up! (Drink up!)
Drink up! (Drink up!)
Oh drink up! Yeah drink up!
Drink up! (Drink up!)
Oh drink up! (Drink up!)
Drink up! Oh drink up!

Hey, thank you Patrick!
Hey, we’re all Irish!

Cold frosty mug or your flask
You could dance a jig if you want (jig on!)
If you see a small man, worry not,
Just go chase down that leprechaun

Just have a drink (drink)
Drink it down until you just have to pee
A sink (sink)
It will make due when the john’s not free

People running ‘round everywhere, and there’s James on the floor
Peter makes everybody lose their minds
When he sings ‘bout a unicorn!

Oh, drink (drink)
There goes Shawn, gonna hit on miss Sophie
Woooo, drink (drink)
What he don’t know, her real name is Steve!

Beer that’s green (So green!)
And shots of booze (way to go!)
Without St. Patrick, it’d look like we have issues!

Oh yeah, for St. Patrick, baby! (drink so much, you’re peein’ green!)
Oh baby, let’s all drink up right now!

(‘Nother round - more Guinness!, ‘nother round - more Guinness!
‘Nother round - more Guinness!, ‘nother round - more Guinness!
‘Nother round - more Guinness!, ‘nother round - more Guinness!
‘Nother round - more Guinness!, ‘nother round - more Guinness!)
NOTE: The "singing a song about a unicorn" line is actually a reference to my father who used to sing "The Unicorn Song" by The Irish Rovers every St. Patty's Day (although, he can't be the only one who does this).

Reminds me of my own parody "Lucky Leprechaun": http://www.amiright.com/parody/90s/nightmarebeforechristmas0.shtml This was a great Saint Patty's tribute. Now off to chug a green beer and try to get lucky with the Irish.

(Artistry) This ws a lot of fun and it seems to me like you really enjoyed writing this one. I was smiling the whole way through. You're rhymes in this one were on point! And using "leprechaun" and "debauchery" was a huge plus.

Bit o'Gaelic soul here, perhaps Van Morrison could sing this parody. You really surprised me by making this consistently funny straight through.

I could really use a drink right now.

(Artistry) St, Patrick's Day is one of those holidays I always forget exist until the day after they happen, like Valentine's Day. Great parody, I especially liked the "Without St. Patrick, it’d look like we have issues" line. 555 pints o' Guinness!
