Lyrics here - Chorus:
Raise a glass to St. Patrick
Raise a glass with me
We'll celebrate the patron saint
Who sailed the Irish sea

Verse 1:
On the hills of Slemish a slave became a man
His spirit was unbroken by chieftain or by clan
The isle of green was in his soul he feared no druid's curse
And long will we remember him in scripture and in verse

Chorus:

Verse 2:
He climbed up to the mountain and made this land his home
We celebrate his memory now wherever we may roam
He left his footprints on the rock of Skerry's windy shore
He walked among us long ago we'll walk for him once more

Chorus:

Verse 3:
For him we wear the shamrock in peace and harmony
In Belfast, Sydney or New York wherever we may be
He's known by all around the world both near and far away
For everyone turns irish now on st. Patrick's Day

Chorus (x2):
