There are only two kinds of people in the world,
The Irish, and those who wish they were.
If you're enough lucky to be Irish...
You're lucky enough!

Grant me a sense of humor, Lord,
The saving grace to see a joke,
To win some happiness from life,
And pass it on to other folk.

'Twas an evening in November,
As I very well remember.
I was strolling down the street in drunken pride,
But my knees were all aflutter,
So I landed in the gutter,
And a pig came up a lay down by my side.
Yes, I lay there in the gutter
Thinking thoughts I could not utter,
When a colleen passing by did softly say,
"You can tell a man that boozes
By the company he chooses."
At that the pig got up and walked away!
"The Irish Pig"

With one extra year to repent!

May the luck of the Irish
Leap to happiest heights
And the highway you travel
Be lined with green lights.

'Tis glad I am and glad I'll be
That you like knowin' the likes of me!
