lyrics

I stepped out of a taxi
With three of my best friends
And we walked into The Porterhouse
About quarter to ten
And there was a large part of me
That wasn't feeling fine
It was St Patrick’s Day
Two thousand and nine

And the people kept appearing
Walking up from Central Station
As I was getting overwhelmed
With awkward conversations
Cos I'm the kind of guy that cares
What other people think
You should have seen my face
When I dropped those drinks

And I just want this evening to be over
Cos I don’t think I’ll ever find that four leaf clover
And I don’t know who I am talking to
I'm all dressed up in green but I'm feeling blue

And I was feeling quite defeated
When a friend drew my attention
To the girl sat in the corner
Looking right in my direction
But before I could react
She made a beeline straight to me
She said “Do you think you can move?”
“I can’t see the T.V.”

And I just want this evening to be over
Cos I don’t think I’ll ever find that four leaf clover
And I don’t know who I am talking to
I'm all dressed up in green but I'm feeling blue

And Patrick was a man who chose
A life of true devotion
He took all of the snakes
And sent them back into the ocean
And he was well known for his goodwill and piety
But I bet that he never had social anxiety

And I just want this evening to be over
Cos I don’t think I’ll ever find that four leaf clover
And I don’t know who I am talking to
I'm all dressed up in green but I'm feeling blue
And there is nothing more that I can do
I'm all dressed up in green but I'm feeling blue
