Here's to the land of the shamrock so green,
Here's to each lad and his darlin colleen,
Here's to the ones we love dearest and most.
May God bless old Ireland, that's this Irishman's toast!
May the lilt of Irish laughter
lighten every load.
May the mist of Irish magic
shorten every road...
And may all your friends remember
all the favours you are owed!
Health and a long life to you.
Land without rent to you.
A child every year to you.
And if you can't go to heaven,
May you at least die in Ireland
May the luck of the Irish
Lead to happiest heights
And the highway you travel
Be lined with green lights.
Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.
May you have all the happiness
and luck that life can hold—
And at the end of all your rainbows
may you find a pot of gold.
If you’re enough lucky to be Irish...
You’re lucky enough!
Work like you don't need the money,
love like you've never been hurt,
dance like no-one is watching,
screw like its being filmed,
and drink like a true Irishman.
