Indulging Your Irish

St

They always say that everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, so why not whip up some yummy treats to celebrate this fun holiday? If you think that these cupcakes look tempting, you can find the recipe at the website listed below.

These cupcakes inspired today’s selection for the FACS Soundtrack—Chocolate Cake by the 80’s band Crowded House.  Your students probably won’t recognize the “celebrities” mentioned in the lyrics, but who cares?  It’s all about introducing the topic of cake baking, making cupcakes, etc.

Such a typical 80s music video—outrageous!

Not everyone in new york would pay to see Andrew Lloyd Webber
May his trousers fall down as he bows to the queen and the crown
I don’t know what tune the orchestra played
But it went by me sickly sentimental

Can I have another piece of chocolate cake
Tammy baker’s got a lot on her plate
Can I buy another cheap Picasso fake
Andy Warhol must be laughing in his grave

The band of the night take you to ethereal heights over dinner
And you wander the streets never reaching the heights that you seek
And the sugar that dripped from the violin’s bow made the children go crazy
Put a hole in the tooth of a hag

Can I have another piece of chocolate cake
Tammy baker must be losing her faith, yeah
Can I buy another cheap Picasso fake
Andy Warhol must be laughing in his grave

And dogs are on the road, we’re all tempting fate
Cars are shooting by with no number plates
And here comes missis hairy legs

I saw Elvis Presley walk out of a seven eleven
And a woman gave birth to a baby and then bowled 257
Now the excess of fat on your American bones
Will cushion the impact as you sink like a stone

Can I have another piece of chocolate cake
Tammy baker, tammy baker
Can I buy another cheap Picasso fake
Cheap Picasso, cheap Picasso fake

Can I have another piece of chocolate cake
Kathy straker boy could she lose some weight
Can I buy another slice of real estate
Liberace must be laughing in his grave

Have a great weekend and a fun St. Patrick’s Day!
