A young man named Paddy O'Shea
came to the U.S. of A.
He found Saugatuck,
T'was that Irish good luck!
Bless me, says he, I'll stay!

The White House, The Butler, and Coral Gables,
Visitors come and drink all they are able,
They shop and they boat
Avoiding the "moat"
While ordering more drinks for the table!
There once was a town named O'Saugy
Whose patrons awoke a bit groggy,
From dancin' and singin'
Their heads were a ringin'
Each morn in the town of O'Saugy!
There was a wee lass form Killarney
Who reclined by the rock of the Blarney.
She wailed, and she moaned,
As she sat by the stone,
But none came to kiss the fair Marnie

St. Patty sat upon the Douglas dune
He was whistling such a happy tune
And with some luck
He sailed to Saugatuck
By the light of the Singapore moon

An Irish billionaire named Aubrey
was much greedier than he ought be
acres and acres he bought
lower taxes he sought
and now deceit, accusations and misery!
He sold us some pristine property
we thought it was done properly
let us hope, let us pray
that it is here to stay
we cant handle much more controversy!

There once was a pup from Douglas-Saugatuck
Who got lost after spotting a red fire truck.
No terrier be she, but she sat in the shade
To retrieve her young man in the Patty parade.
Now she’s been crowned a setter of Irish luck.
Jim Hayden, Fennville, MI
Said the early earthworm to the bird,
"You're late, you mis'rable nerd!
The others took off and left
and you come here bereft?
You, early bird, get deferred!"
The world's tallest man swam the sea
From Tokyo to Tennessee
he dove in and found
his belly splashdown'd
and his head lay aground in D.C.
Lori Deubner, Chesterfield, MO
There once was a chicken named Cluck,
He felt he was down on his luck,
Along came a friend named Fried,
Cluck laughed so hard he cried,
Then he danced around Saugatuck.
