My Birthday’s on St. Patrick’s Day
Buy the book The Armpit of Doom
My birthday’s on St. Patrick’s day.
I wore no green at all,
and got a pinch from every kid
who passed me in the hall.
You get “a pinch to grow an inch”
whenever birthdays fall.
I guess they must have worked
because I’m thirty-nine feet tall.
