Listening to: Flogging Molly - Irish Drinking Song
"There are many good reasons for drinking, One has just entered my head. If a man doesn't drink when he's living, How in the hell can he drink when he's dead?"
"May you live to be a hundred years With one extra year to repent."
"Here's to a long life and a merry one A quick death and an easy one A pretty girl and an honest one A cold beer and another one!"
"Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter Lullabies, dreams, and love ever after. Poems and songs with pipes and drums
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes. That's the Irish for you!""There's a dear little plant that grows in our isle, 'Twas St. Patrick himself, sure, that sets it; And the sun of his labor with pleasure did smile, And with dew from his eye often wet it. It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the mireland, And they call it the dear little Shamrock of Ireland."
"May your neighbors respect you, Troubles neglect you, The angels protect you, And Heaven accept you."
"May the lilt of lush laughter lighten ever road, May the midst of Irish magic shorten every road. May you taste the sweetest pleasures that fortune ever bestowed, And may all your friends remember all the favors you are owed.""May your home always be too small to hold all your friends. God is good, but never dance in a small boat."
"Go mbeannai Dia duit
(May God Bless You)"
HAPPY ST. PADDYS DAY!!!
I must tell you all a story. A lady and her 14 yr old down syndrome boy live in AZ. She decided to go to work even though her son was sick home alone. She told him to call her if there was any problems. Around noon her son calls her and blurts out "I caught a leprechaun! You gotta come see! They say no one can catch them! I got him caught in the closet! Come see!" Of course, we all know there is no such thing as leprechauns so she felt safe in saying such and that she needed to get back to work. Well, he called her all afternoon insisting he caught a leprechaun and that she come take a look at him. She figgered this fantasy her down syndrome son was having would be okay until she got home. She came home around 4 and her son was all sorts of excited that she could see this leprechaun he caught and locked up. He had this closet mega blocked with all sorts of furniture as to not let the leprechaun escape. They went through the rummage to unleash said beast when much to her dismay she finds a midget who happens to be a Jehovah witness locked in her closet. Needless to say, he did not appreciate waiting four hours for her to come see the leprechaun her son caught. And needless to say she regretted telling her son about this certain holiday in the first place. Maybe there really are leprechauns? Gotta admit, the boy is a smart one. True story yo!
