Let's buy Healthcare Heroes a round!
I can tell you where they can be found
Not at home with their pets
Watching Netflix in sweats
They're at work keeping yinz above ground!
There a pandemic, so we cannot go aht.
After a year, I just wanna shaht.
Though my wife is a saint,
Her patience grows faint.
She says "Drink, so yinz quit runnin' yer mouth!”
Teaching is like a fine wine,
It’s supposed to get better with time,
But this year’s been crazy,
No time to be lazy,
I didn’t sign up for online!
We gotta keep socially distant,
Since covid has been persistent,
I need a great party,
to eat and drink hearty,
since staying at home is insistent.
St Pattys Day I am rethinking
I need to do more drinking
My wife says I'm lazy
I think she's crazy
Home party is all I'm thinking
The Covid’s a pain in the ass
My beer has made me have gas
A party is needed
So much that I’ve heeded
A way to be a much better lass.
Double yoi! We’ve found a financier,
for our dreams of Irish whiskey and beer.
From the comfort of home,
we can pee some place known.
The DVE float’s in our driveway this year!
Yinz jag offs can't party dahntahn,
Blame the covid that's goin' arahnd (around).
Shots of whiskey at home,
Singin' Danny Boy alone,
Eatin' chipped ham and pumpin' some arn.
St. Paddy's Day ain't got no boom.
With nobody else in the room
But the whiskey's all mine
And the beer and the wine
This year I'll be barfing on zoom.
I’ve got to stay home for St. Pattys
Just like all other mommy's and daddy's,
My kids drive me nuts,
And I'm stuck in a rut,
If I don’t win some booze I’ll go batty
Been sober for months, nearly nine
Long nights without beer, whiskey and wine
Push this baby out
Stop this drinking drought
Make all of the alcohol mine!
There once was a newlywed couple
Who spent their first years in a bubble
No honeymoon to take, with covid at stake.
But run out of beer? now, that’s trouble.
St Patty’s was cancelled last year
We couldn’t buy liquor or beer
To slow down the spread
We stayed in and baked bread
And now I don’t wear a brassiere
