Marry a mountain girl and you marry the whole mountain.

May your heart be light and happy, may your smile be big and wide, and may your pockets always have a coin or two inside!

May the leprechauns be near you, To spread luck along your way. And may all the Irish angels, Smile upon you St. Patrick's Day.

There are only two kinds of people in the world, The Irish And those who wish they were.
