If misfortune should ever follow you – may it never catch up.
May you work like you
Don’t need the money
Love like you’ve never been hurt
And dance like no-one is watching.
May your pockets be heavy
And your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you
Every morning and night.
May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
May good luck be your friend
In whatever you do
And may trouble be always
A stranger to you.
May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow.
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
