It’s a great day for the Irish
Begosh and begorra, ev’ry Irish son and daughter,
Ev’ry good old Irish name and his relation,
They come from Tipperary, Donegal, and County Kerry,
But they all are here to join this celebration.
Now, there’s Terrence O’Toole and his cousin, Phil Doherty,
Patrick O’Bogle and Mullin McGrew,
Mike Maley, Tim Dayley, and Barney O…’Flagherty,
Daniel Doolan and Shamus Carewe.
Conleys and Donleys and Padraic O’Bannigan,
Ryans, O’Briens, McLaughlins, and Lynch,
McGloans and McFaddens and Mister Pat Flannagan,
Hogans and Glogans, McPhersons and Finch.
It’s a great day for the Irish, it’s a great day for fair.
Begosh, there’s not a cop to stop a’raiding,
Begorra, all the cops are out parading!
It’s a great day for the shamrock, for the flags in full array.
And as we go a-swinging, ev’ry Irish heart is singing:
It’s a great, great day!
