IRISH FOR A DAY
Copyright 2013 by Robert J. Thompson

I WAS WALKING DOWN THE STREET ONE DAY
AND MUCH TO MY SURPRISE
A CAR DROVE BY AT BLAZING SPEED
IT NEARLY TOOK MY LIFE
THE DRIVER TURNED AND WINKED AT ME
NOTHING DID HE SAY
I SHOOK MY FIST AND YELLED
YOU'RE GOING THE WRONG WAY
HEY!
IRISH FOR A DAY
IRISH FOR A DAY
THE ONLY WAY I CAN EXPLAIN
HE'S IRISH FOR A DAY

DUMDUMDUMDUMATEEDUMDUMDUM

I PROCEEDED TO ME CORNER PUB
AND MUCH TO MY SURPRISE
ONE HUNDRED PEOPLE WEARING GREEN
STANDING IN A LINE
I SAID HEY SEAN WHAT CAN THIS BE?
THIS CROWD IS IN MY WAY
COME ON IN THEY’RE WEARING GREEN
AND YOU ARE WEARING GRAY
HEY!
IRISH FOR A DAY
IRISH FOR A DAY
THE ONLY WAY I CAN EXPLAIN
THEY’RE IRISH FOR A DAY

PLAY!
INSTRUMENTAL

I WAS SITTIN’ IN ME PUB THAT DAY
AND MUCH TO MY SURPRISE
A FIGHT BROKE OUT IN FRONT OF ME
BETWEEN A GIRL AND A GUY
SHE HIT HIM SQUARE UPON HIS JAW
HIS KNEES BEGAN TO SWAY
SHE FINISHED WITH AN UPPERCUT
THEN TURNED AND WALKED AWAY
HEY!
IRISH FOR A DAY
IRISH FOR A DAY
THE ONLY WAY I CAN EXPLAIN
SHE’S IRISH FOR A DAY

DUMDUMDUMDUMATEEDUMDUMDUM

WHEN I FINALLY LEFT ME PUB THAT DAY
AND MUCH TO MY SURPRISE
A MAN WAS PASSED OUT IN THE STREET
RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES
HE WAS WEARING NOTHING BUT A HAT
BUT I KNOW HE’LL BE OK
‘CAUSE SOMEONE WROTE UPON HIS BACK
“I’M IRISH FOR A DAY”
HEY!
IRISH FOR A DAY
IRISH FOR A DAY
THE ONLY WAY I CAN EXPLAIN
HE’S IRISH FOR A DAY
HEY!
IRISH FOR A DAY
IRISH FOR A DAY
THE ONLY WAY I CAN EXPLAIN
HE’S IRISH FOR A DAY
HEY!
