Today is St. Patrick ’s Day

And in your heart you remember

Bagpipes resonating in your body

Sounds of the land-your family

Remember

Tap-tap twice on the left heel and tap-tap on the right heel

Forward, backward

Repetition 2,2, and kick

This is how they taught me in the New York pubs

All of us in a circle

The grownups swilling beer

Laughing, singing and having a good time

Till it was time to close the pub

 And all hell broke loose

Punching, screaming, crying

Let’s just get on home

Get some rest

You have had too much to drink

Tomorrow is another day

We will wake with clear heads

Feel so ashamed

Till next St. Patrick’s Day
