Here's One Sure Ta Go To The Top O' the Charts

Aye, I was a wee bit bored, so here's a little St. Pat's Day song for all of you. This one is going out special to Robert Plant and Bar Bar A.

Leprechaun (sung to the tune of "Ramble On")

Shamrocks growing all around,
Time I was on my way.
Rainbow forming in the sky,
Breaking up the gray.

So now 'tis time for me to go,
Playin' bagpipes on the way.
And I can smell the rain starting to wane
Now I gotta make hay.
Oh, sometimes I grow so tired,
But I know I've got one thing I got to do...

I'm a leprechaun!
And now's the time the time is now
To sing my song,
I'm going around the world,
I gotta find me gold.
On my way,
I've been this way since I was a wee babe.
Leprechaun!
You steal me gold I'll knock you out cold.


Got no time for Lucky Charms,
My riches I depend upon.
And sure, I'll find them at the rainbow's end
'Cause I'm the leprechaun.

(Pipes solo)

I'm a leprechaun!
And now's the time the time is now
To sing my song,
I'm going around the world,
I gotta find me gold.
On my way,
I've been this way since I was an elf babe.
Leprechaun!
You steal me gold I'll knock you out cold.

Toora-loora-loo-ra-lie...

A leprechaun ya can not hold,
Our freedom we hold dear.
But years ago in days of old,
After ten pints of beer...
'Twas on the craggy cliffs of Moher,
One met a girl so fair.
Forced him to give up his gold,
And then she slipped away with it.

But nobody's gonna get mine...

Or I'll hit 'em with my shillelagh!
I'm not gonna taaaake (any shite from any of ye filthy fecks)
I'm a leprechaun, so pogue mahone
Gonna work my way back to my gold (leprechaun, baby)
A doodl-y-oo dee dee dum dee dee doo.....
I can't stop tryin' to find my pot,
Gotta keep searching for it, baby (aye, aye, aye, aye...)

ROTFL! I wish I knew the tune to "Ramble On"... (I probably DO, and just don't recognize the title), but the lyrics were a laugh and a half all by themselves! Happy St. Pat's!

Thought you'd sneak that Eddie Vedder comment in, huh?


I think not.

Eddie stinks, and I don't like him.

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
