Album Notes
The song idea came into my head back in 2013 after a Facebook post in which I wrote "It may be warming globally, but it's FREEZING locally!" Saint Patrick's Day that year dawned at around -20 Celsius in Saint Petersburg. No end to winter in sight, global warming notwithstanding. 2019 is shaping up no better and it's getting old!

Also in 2019, my native island has become infested with snakes of an especially malevolent character. I decided to bring this old heretofore unreleased track out of mothballs and cast it upon the waters for St. Paddy's Day in hopes that the Good Saint might stage a repeat performance on American shores.

So here's a slightly raunchy comic tune, sung with a horrible pseudo Chicago-Irish accent, dedicated to my appropriately named friend Patrick in Riga, and my Irish-descended songwriter friend Greg in Minnesota (he knows winter when he sees it), who first challenged me to come up with a banjo song for St. Paddy's Day.

P.S. Especially for my American compatriots who may have some misgivings about the word "Feck!" used extensively in this song - it doesn't mean what your prurient mind is probably thinking it means, and it is not considered a no-no word in Ireland. Just so you know.
