Fastest Parodist in the West

As my nearest and dearest know, I frequent a jernt on West 46th Street, Danny's Grand Sea Palace. Its generous pianist, Jerry Scott, allows me to get up, try out material--and usually fall flat on my face. It occurred to me on the way home from my DAMP this evening that Danny's, like most places, will probably do St. Patrick's Day up brown, and that a jingle to advertise the do might be in order.

Between the Hoboken and Pavonia PATH stations--a few minutes by my Ingersoll--the following workmanlike effort popped unbidden into my head, to the tune of Cohan's Harrigan:

Danny's on St. Paddy's Day.
What a grand occasion to be merry--
Whether you're County Cork or County Kerry.

That's the place to be.
Eat a lot; drink a shot;
Sing a song (thanks to Jerry Scott)--
Celebrate with me!

Lyric © 2006 Nathaniel DesH. Petrikov

Not clever, but serviceable--mentions the name, the food, the drink, the music--and, in keeping with the season, faux Irish.
