The St. Patrick’s Day Parade

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I feel I ought to praise
Some great Being so divine
For the many joyous days
In this mundane life of mine.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 For the day my spindly arms
Lifted up the Cup on high,
For the day my partner’s charms
Blotted out the moon and sky,

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 For the day my kids were born,
For my visit to Beijing,
For the wondrous Matterhorn
Shining bright in early spring,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 For Shels’ 96 Cup win,
For that day in Alton Towers,
For the day that we moved in
To that tiny house of ours.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But my fav’rite ever day
Was the day my kids relayed
That this year, was it okay
If we skipped the Grand Parade?
