|May there be a fox on your fishing hook|
And a hare on your bait
And may you kill no fish
Until St. Brigid's Day.
|May you always have a cool head and a warm heart.
|May you be poor in misfortune,|
Rich in blessings,
Slow to make enemies,
And quick to make friends.
But rich or poor, quick or slow,
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.
|May you die in bed at 95 years,|
Shot by a jealous wife!
|May you get all your wishes but one so you always have something to strive for!
|May you have food and raiment,|
A soft pillow for your head,
May you be forty years in heaven
Before the devil knows you're dead.
|May you have the health of a salmon -- a strong heart and a wet mouth.
|May you live long,|
And rate a mansion in heaven.
|May you live to be a hundred years with one extra year to repent.
|May you look back fifty years from now and agree that today was the worst day of your married life.
