The Lyrics

T' be sure, t' be sure....Here's the Original
Well, ye t'ink oi've a rilly cute accent,
And ye've brought all t' U2 CDs
Oi've been told Boston's pretty, but oi've never been
So stop stereotoiping me, please

Oi can't stand t' taste of potaters
And Guinness just muddles me 'ead
And alt'ough ye may not believe it
T'ere's no leprechauns under me bed

And me brudder's not a policeman
(He works 9 t' 5 making plum jam)
Oi don't have t' charm o' Pierce Brosnan
Oi'm still livin' at home wit' me mam...

And oi aren't Riverdancin' for no-one
And oi'm not down t' pub ev'ry noight
Oi've not contemplated t' priesthood
And oi've never once been in a foight

And oi can't play t' bloody tin whistle
And oi've never worn anyt'ing green
Oi don't keep a horse in t' back yard
And moi sisters aren't all named Colleen


Oi've got more t'an one pair o' trousers
And oi'm not always up for the craic*
If ye greet me, "Top o' t' mornin'",
Hey, oi moight just well give ye a slap...

And t'ere's no shamrocks in me garden
And no gingers in moi fam'ly tree
It's easy t' fall for t' blarney,
Sure, oi'm Oirish: but mostly oi'm ME!

But oi'll tell ye a fact, trut'fully;
Ye don't need cash fer whisky: it's free!
("Gullible" ain't in t' diction'ry.....)
* craic: pronounced "crack"; an Irish word for fun, jollity, conversation etc.

I can't stop laughing, Kristof. You have the knack for posting parodies that seem like such obvious ideas, yet you think of them first. That's talent ! Here, about 60% of the populace claim Irish ancestry. In ten days that number will go to 100%. Your jokes and dialect would be welcome in Boston...well the jokes anyway...I'm not sure they'd notice the dialect.

I agree with Invisible Boy. I can't believe nobody has thought of Iris-h before, I mean it seems so bloody obvious. So amazing job here Kristof.

Begorrah, and nearly two weeks shy of St. Patty's day. This is great. The OS, however, appears on viewing to blow.

funny as hell and nice accenting

Thanks a bunch Jack, McK, IB, Matty, John and Al....I was kind of surprised as well that I was the first person to come up with this title sub; but there aren't many "Iris" parodies on the site, and sometimes the most obvious ideas get skipped over until weirdos like me dig 'em up. Cheers all, and Happy St Pat's!

p.s. I agree, John: the OS sucks as well as blows

Shiverin' ShamRocks, . . . this is great Lord Kristof ! It charms me FrancoAustrian heart, to become ~Iris~ each March 17th.

There's something very green about this parody ... and that's a GOOD thing!

Very good Kristof! Unfortunatly I can't vote as the free internet at the Volkswagen garage where my car is being serviced won't let me vote, but no matter, I'll vote when I get home. I'm stuck here for the time being as there are some delayed issues taking place!

Kristof, very enjoyable. Agree about the OS.
