Glorious Green

Irish Song Lyrics - Glorious Green

No fashion designer in Eden
were found though Adam and Eve
took a good look around said Eve, '
My predicament mustn't be seen.'
The first dress she wore was a nice leafy green

CHORUS: It was green green glorious green
the loveliest color that you've ever seen
when the earth was young it was nice and serene
covered all over with glorious green

Though red and white roses in England
still grow they once thought each other,
but how they'ed show there are thistles in Scotland
and leeks around Wales in Ireland
the green of the shamrock prevails
Now William of Orange beat James at the Boyne
said he,'Though he won it's only annoyin''
Said the General Ginkle, 'I know what you mean.
It was easy to beat James
but hard 'twas to beat green.'
Now history left Ireland a colorful scene
one part is orange the other is green
the north and the south they should
both look ahaed to make sure the
old country stays out of the red
