The Lyrics

Procrastinator that i am, I missed St.Patrick's Day! Anyway, enjoy the song.
Oh, Take Me To That Land Of Erin
It's A Place Beyond Comparin'
The Fiddles Play, The Pipes Are Blarrin'
That's Why I Like Ireland

In Dublin, Cork, and Glocca Morra
The Shamrock Is The Native Flora
The Folks All Say "Faith And Begorrah!"
That's Why I Like Ireland

Everywhere You Look There's Green
So Grab Yourself A Sweet Colleen
'Cause What They Do Can Be Obscene
That's Why I Like Ireland

There's Red Sunsets And Golden Dawns
Lush Green Hills And Golden Ponds
And Don't Forget Those Leprechauns
That's Why I Like Ireland

The Folks Are Always Fun And Frisky
And Being English Is Quite Risky
When The Lads Have Too Much Whiskey
That's Why I Like Ireland

There's Entertainment Of Your Choice
Lots Of Songs So Raise Your Voice
And Dirty Novels By James Joyce
That's Why I Like Ireland

Whiskey Enough To Fill The Sea
That's Just Enough For You And Me
If You Want Beer, Go To Germany!
That's Why I Like Ireland

So Celebrate Dear Saint Pat-rick's
With Our Hibernian Party Tricks
And Come Get Drunk With All the Micks!
That's Why I Like Ireland

The only ethnic group that revels in its stereotypes rather than getting all whiny and P.C. about them. Go raibh maith agat.

I remember Phil Harris singing the OS on the Jack Benny radio show, but you're too young. Only one quibble: last lines need another syllable, e.g., "olde" to match OS's meter. Otherwise LOL!
