O'Sullivan, Gilbert - The Luck Of The Irish Lyrics




One and one and two are three
If you adhere to Irish logic
That's just one of the many jokes of which
the Irish are the topic
You can talk about the luck of but in
truth there's not a lot

So we have this reputation of being
as thick two short planks
And although George Bernard Shaw was Irish he's an Englishman
No we don't live in houses that are otherwise known as bars
Yes we do have other transport besides donkeys and carts
Go to Dublin day or night
And see for yourself there's not a bog in sight

In America the joke about the Irishman would die
There for some peculiar season it's the polish they decry
Bet in Sweden it's Norwegians and in Norway it's the Danes
And it's a fallacy to think that Irish people drink the most when in enjoy Germany alone their beer consumption unapproached
As for Britain far from being sober they would enjoy their drink
But to call an Englishman a drunk would be an awful thing
What you need to do for that is a chap named pat and the luck of the Irish
Kiss the blarney stone but get down on your back to do it
Okay on the surface I admit it does seem rather stupid
But you mustn't judge a book by all accounts
But by what's underneath it's cover up your daughters what they don't see they won't miss
Remember contraception is despair but ignorance is bliss
The church will tell you what you should and what you shouldn't do is argue with it Shergar's body been exhumed by Irish terrorists today
If the ransom isn't paid out then his life may not be saved
No we don't live in houses that are otherwise known as bars
Yes we do have other transport besides donkeys and carts
Go to Dublin day or night
And see for yourself there's not a bog in sight
The luck of the Irish

Kiss the blarney stone but get down on your back to do it
Okay on the surface I admit it does seem rather stupid
But you mustn't judge a book by all accounts
But by what's underneath it's cover up your daughters what they don't see they won't miss
Remember contraception is despair but ignorance is bliss
The church will tell you what you should and what you shouldn't do is argue with it
