St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated every year on March 17th far and near
The little green leprechaun can be found every where
As coins of gold fall here and there
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated with green beer and lucky shamrocks
The luck of the Irish rings true on every clock
As people shout and cheer in hopes of luck
Cheers, cheers, cheers to the lucky Irish!
