Shamrock Doesn't Grow in California

Lyrics

You know
Shamrock doesn't grow in California
And you're shorely is a 45

It's the leaf of all that chiefs
But I can't keep it alive
'Cause shamrock doesn't grow in California

A letter came from my sweetheart in Ireland (ooh)
The envelope was brimming full of shamrock seeds
She said, "I'm sure you know
You can't make the shamrock grow
Don't plant it over there beside the sage and jimsonweed
'Cuz you know..."

Shamrock doesn't grow in California
(It won't grow)
And you're shorely is a 45

It's the leaf of all the chiefs
But I can't keep it alive
'Cuz shamrock doesn't grow in California

Well, I planted the shamrock seeds
My sweetheart sent me (ooh)
Myth Amish Irish green, I said
"For me, they're sure to grow"

My good friend, Mike O'Shea
Came every day for 30 days
When cactus grew instead, Mike said
"What I could have told you so
Thought you know, boy"

(Shamrock doesn't grow in California)
Yeah
(And you're shorely is a 45)

It's the leaf of all that chiefs
But I can't keep it alive (ooh)
'Cause shamrock doesn't grow in California
