It is magic when that happens Mr. Happy.


Here's one of mine

Exponential Blarney (Bert Hansell)
You can sing this to the tune of 'Back to Donnegal'
        

A
If you go to Ireland
    D
and you have a tale to tell
             A
They'll tell you a couple back
E7
and tell 'em twice as well


A
For two for one's the deal me lads
    D
The best you've ever known
    A
For everyone in Ireland
E7            A
Has kissed the blarney stone

Now you've got three stories
You're really in a fix
Tell 'em to a friend be boys
and he'll come back with six

Now you've got nine stories
And as sure as Ireland's green
Tell 'em to a neighbor
And he'll tell you eighteen

Now I've twenty seven stories
And if I tell them to you
You'll have to tell me fifty four
Before this day is through

If you keep telling stories
As you go from door to door
You'll have fifty million stories
That you've never heard before
