'Tis that grand old day
That those of us who may or may not have a wee drop o' Irish blood in our veins
Put on as good a fake brogue as ever we may,
Crank up the jigs and reels,
And do all things Irish.
Here's wishin' you and yours a blessed St. Patricks Day.
May the blessing of light be on you—
light without and light within.
May the blessed sunlight shine on you
and warm your heart
till it glows like a great peat fire.
