Enjoying St. Patrick's Day

Updated on March 15, 2012

Three years ago we adopted out cat SId. He spent a whole week in our basement because he had been abused and thrown out in the street and wasn't sure about his new home. He came out to join us on St. Patrick's Day and so I decided right away he was at least part Irish and we made this day his birthday. This year on Saturday he will be 6 years old and this song is for him.


Oh, no I’m not Irish
No not me
But come every St. Patrick’s Day
And greener I couldn’t be

Come St. Patrick’s Day
I’m ready to march in the big parade
Prouder, than proud
To join the Irish
On their great day!

Love every four leaf clover
That happens to come my way
I’ll say to any leprechaun
Have a good day!

Come St. Patrick’s Day
I’m ready to march in the big parade
All decked out in green
Prouder, than proud
To join the Irish
On their great day!

Love those Irish jigs
Seeing smiling Irish eyes
Green’s the color for this day
And I’m ready to be
A true colleen

Come St. Patrick’s Day
I’m ready to march in the big parade
Prouder, than proud
To join the Irish
On their great day!

No, no I’m not Irish
But come this special day
I’ll lift a mug of beer or two
And say Erin go bragh!

Come St. Patrick’s Day
I’m ready to march in the big parade
Prouder, than proud
To join the Irish
On their great day!

Green’s the color
I love to see
On a day that makes most everyone
Irish in their hearts

Come St. Patrick’s Day
I’m ready to march in the big parade
Prouder, than proud
To join the Irish
On their great day!

So come St. Patrick’s Day
Surprised you won’t be
To see me do the Irish jig
And wearin’ the green!

Come St. Patrick’s Day
I’m ready to march in the big parade
Prouder, than proud
To join the Irish
On their great day!

      I think that God has blessed you with such a great spirit. I can catch a smile even before I read your songs . Great.

      I love smiles because it's only so much those who wears a smile can do angrily.

      Great work Rose , and keep smiling...

      Bless and have a great day.

      lol What is the tune? I cant hear it in my head. A lot of verses though. My great Grandmother was an immigrant from Ireland so I can relate.

      Up, awesome, and beautiful! Gypsy! WOW:) What a cool little song for our friend Sid! Bless your heart my dear. We all can find a little inspiration from your story on the rescue of Sid. Well, make sure you tell him I said happy birthday Gypsy. Hope you, Sid, and your hubby our doing good. Best wishes to you all:)

      Sky9106 your comment made me smile. Thanks and God bless.

      Jaggedfrost I do believe I had some sort of Irish jig in my head when the words came out. lol Your great grandmother came from a very lovely country.

      Hi friend thelyricwriter. Glad you liked my Irish song. Sid is ready for the big day and I'll wish him a happy from you. We're all fine on this end. Have a great day!

      You don't have to be Irish to enjoy St Patrick's day! Cute poem. You should dress Sid in green for the big day. I'm Irish through and through.

      Mary hope you have a really wonderful St. Patrick's Day and you already have the luck of the Irish in you. I don't know what the birthday boy would say if I put a green T-shirt on him but it's a thought.Glad you liked the poem.

      Jaggedfrost I'm not very far from Ireland now and I certainly am longing to see the Emerald Isle. Definitely worth taking the trip. With our really bad economic times here in Latvia a lot of Latvian people are now living and working in Ireland.Hope you have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
