5: Where I'm From I am from crosses, from Coca Cola and Kerrygold. I am from the condo. Nice, comfy, with the shelves that don’t quite fit all my trophies. I am from the red clay, the shamrock. I am from Riverdance and rednecks, from Victoria and Eric and Griffin. I am from the stories told when we’re together and laughter for times we’ve done something dumb. From yes sir and yes ma’am I am from rosaries and “Ave”s and “Pater Noster”s. I'm from Stone Mountain and Wicklow, cornbread and corned beef. From the uncle who got his tongue stuck in a Yoohoo bottle, the brother who got cereal stuck in his nose, and the other brother (who, according to the words of Sir Mix A Lot, can't deny). I am from the walls, hanging with photos of people and times more valued than gold. | 2

7: My Mother's Kitchen My mom walked into the kitchen And was met with quite a shock. The lamb roasting there in the oven Got up and started to talk He said, “I will grant you three wishes If you do not eat me today.” My mom was astounded and frankly confounded, So the most she could say was “Okay.” | 3

9: She then stood and thought for a minute And finally turned to the lamb. “Hold on now,” she said, “I thought you were dead.” And old Lamby answered, “I am!” “Now how can a dead lamb grant wishes!” My poor mother started to rant. And the lamb gave her one simple answer: He told her, “Quite frankly, I can’t!” Now listen here for the moral Which I have been meaning to tell ye. That talking dead lamb is delicious When served with a side of mint jelly. | 4

11: Self Respect There once was a dancer named Damon. Did dance make him wimpy? No way man! He’s still a cool guy, He’s smart, strong, and fly, And has far more ladies than the laymen. | 5
