For The Irish

 Proud fathers  and relatives of the past.
Ghost's of thoose first Irish americans.
Eventhough the ignorant tried  to kill us 
still we did last.

Using  are fists and breaking are backs.
from New York to Boston.
Green blood dries in the tracks.

Beautiful Island of green we left  yet still
within are souls you stay.
From Belfast  to Dublin In croweded streets
were children play.

Some call us paddy the brave few dare say mic.
Hate filled people casting stones 
at the weak and sick.

As we viewed a new promise  we 
were  met with a black eye.
But from the church to the pud.
The Irish were to strong to die.

And for all thoose who fought so I my
may talk to you from this stool I sit.
I promise you children of Eran  .
I shall never quit.

So may the people dance and sing while the whiskey 
does flow.
Let the young carry the torch 
so all may know.

from shamrocks to St Patricks day.
Weve come to far.  
So we shall never go away.

Irish or No

There’s a celebration to come
That can’t keep Irishman apart
Even non Irishman are invited
To play out their Irish part.

Now speaking like the Irish
Let me say, “That I am so
And I must say, I am proud to be,
And my Irish friends say this also”.

So whether you’re Irish or No”
Or just an Irishman at heart
“Happy St. Patrick’s day to you
On this 17th day of March!
