ST. PATRICK'S DAY

Oh, the day planted hope in my soul with its first kiss of spring
But I thought that my Nokia had died ‘til it started to ring
Was a short distance call that delivered me straight to my knees
She said ‘our mutual acquaintance is back from the southern seas



Oh, the games that we play
When I just had to say
Oh my life went a different way on St. Patrick’s Day



I put on my favourite shirt and I started to stroll
Then I casually walked in the bar like a man in control
But she looked for the world like the first girl a school boy had seen
So I sat like that child in my quiet feeling emerald green



Oh, the games that we play
When I just had to say
Oh my life went a different way on St. Patrick’s Day



Our mutual acquaintance announced he had something to share
When you two are in the same room there are sparks in the air
And so it was set but it never was part of a plan
And I swear nothing happened that night but that’s when it began

Oh, the games that we play
When I just had to say
Oh my life went a different way on St. Patrick’s day
