Subject: Lyr/Tune Add: THE BIRTH OF ST. PATRICK (McCaffrey)
From: *#1 PEASANT*
Date: 17 Mar 01 - 09:36 AM

At last! Transcribed by my daughter Margaret! A great song give it some new life!

The Birth of St. Patrick

On the eighth day March it was some people say
That St. Patrick on Midnight he  first saw the day
While others declared 'twas the  ninth he was born
But was often mistaken between midnight and morn.

Mistakes will occur in hurry and shock
While some blamed the blamed the baby Some blamed the clock
With all the questions sure no one would know
If the clock was too fast or the child was too slow.

The first faction fight in olde Ireland they say
It was all in account of St. Patrick's birthday
Some fought for the eighth for the ninth some would die
Wouldn't see right sure they'd blacken his eye

Till at last all the factions so positive grew
They both kept a birthday so Pat then had two
But father Mulchey showed them their sin
Said no one could have two birthdays but for twins

So boys don't be fighting for eight or for nine.
Don't be always dividing sometimes combine
Combine eight with nine seventeen was the mark
So let that be his birthday amen said the clerk

He was not a twin so our history will show
But he sure is worth any two saints that we know
So we all got blind drunk which completed our bliss
And we keep up the practice from that day till this.

-As sung by Leo Mccaffrey transcribed by Margaret C.Bladey
To the tune of the Olde Orange Flute (sortof)
