When Wishin' in Ireland

by Twisted Heart   Mar 13, 2006

Be careful what you wish for
when you find a leprechaun;
because it is his duty
to make that wish go wrong.
Take sweet, old Mr. Finny
wished for knowledge beyond belief;
now he is a master
at the art of philosophy.
He argues all the time with those
who think that he is wrong;
all because he went and found
a little leprechaun.
Elsa was a homely girl
just a lass at twenty;
wished for love to come her way
now she's cursed with plenty.
The lads come knocking day and night
she never gets relief;
all because of the leprechaun
she found hiding in a tree.
And there's Ms. O'Malley
who wished wealth would come her way;
but now all of her servants
are stealing every day.
Their hands stretched out each morning
but when the day is spent;
they take all they can carry
from her pantry, house, and mint.
So if you come upon one
please to these words take heed;
throw a rock in his direction
and hope that he will flee.
Don't give him satisfaction
of laughing at your back;
grab him hard with both hands
and kick his little a**!
