The Lyrics

Saint Patrick, on March seventeen
Saint Patrick, we're wearin' the green
Saint Patrick, we party and drink, yeah
Saint Patrick, so what do you think

Was your life pious and pure
Just living like a monk
If it was are you content
Being the patron saint of getting drunk

(I'm talkin' 'bout)
Saint Patrick, the legends all state that
Saint Patrick, you drove out the snakes
Most experts, contend that it's fake
(It looks like)
Saint Patrick, just can't get a break
Oh no

I don't care if it's myth
Truth is not for me
How you lived doesn't matter now
'Long as we get to have a jubilee

(We're drinkin' to)
Saint Patrick, you know what they say, yeah
Saint Patrick, turned milk to Claret
Saint Patrick, you know what I hear, yeah
Saint Patrick, you baptised with beer

And so we all wonder, in 453, yeah
Saint Patrick, were you wearing green
I'm askin' Saint Patrick, when times were unsure
Please tell me Saint Patrick, was whisky your cure

Saint Patrick, the guys and the girls are
Bar hoppin', they drink 'til they hurl
I'm sayin' no matter our names
Because of Saint Patrick, we're Irish today

(I wonder)
Saint Patrick, would folks have a fit if
They found out that you were a Brit
I think if Saint Patrick saw how we behave
Then holy Saint Patrick would spin in his grave
Yeah, yeah

Saint Patrick

Glad to see some Irish parodies today. Nicely done.

What would Patrick think of being the patron saint of drunkenness? When I heard that "hurling" was the national sport of Ireland, I did not think they were referring to a form of field hockey.

If he can drive all the snakes out of Washington D.C. then I'll buy the drinks! ;D

That's beyond genius. I seem to be the only one who can't come up with parodies based on any sort of Holiday.

Excellent tribute to St. Patrick. I'm definitely going to take in some of the St. Patrick's Day revelry at the Irish pub down the street from where I live, that includes green beer, Irish Coffee, Guinness and lots of other boozy drinks and fun stuff. 5s.
