About the song
I came up with this riff about 20 years ago. I finally decided on the perfect use for it.
Lyrics
It's that time that we look forward to
this day once every year..
After a day of driving out the infernal serpents,
it's time to drink green beer

We raise our glass to St. Patrick,
the Saint of the Emerald Isle
and embibe this day a seasonal beverage
that gaurantees a smile

With corned beef and cabbage,
liver and onions or even Spam..
There's only one beverage that
men drink today throughout the land

The legend tells of a Leprechaun
who would tempt men with his gold
then swap the treasure for a green
brew -- for the story is told
Leprechauns are known for inventing
the now popular drink, for you see
it's brewed in the land of faeries
and it's made with Leprechaun pee!
