Watch Adam Sandler Sing as Bono From His 'Saturday Night Live' Days About Not Drinking on St. Patrick's Day
Adam Sandler had a knack for spreading holiday cheer on Saturday Night Live no matter what the occasion. The comedian found his niche on the sketch show by appearing on Weekend Update with a guitar to sing goofy songs that have become holiday favorites like "The Hanukkah Song" and "The Thanksgiving Song." The Sandman even imitated Bono and sang about St. Patrick's Day.
While "The St. Patrick's Day Song" is not as well-known as Sandler's other tunes, it still provides a few laughs for those still listening to They're All Gonna Laugh at You! The premise is simple enough, too: Achtung Baby Bono wants to provide people alternate activities besides getting wasted on St. Patty's Day. That opens the door for Sandler's wacky mind.
The comedian kicks the song off with a few melodic non-words. Then he goes for it.
"Sometimes it's fun to slide on the kitchen floor in a new pair of socks," he sings. "Sometimes it's fun to paint dots on your face and tell people you have chicken pox."
The tune is a replica of "The Thanksgiving Song" in that it uses the holiday as a frame for Sandler to sing about nonsense. There are few references in the song about St. Patrick's Day. And that is just fine.
"No doing beer bongs, no Jägermeister shooters / No head-butting your mom, no grabbing your cousin's hooters / Don't get wasted this St. Patty's Day," he advises.
Other things to do instead of drinking today, March 17, according to the Sandman include having a staring contest, watching The Karate Kid and buying a Shamrock Shake.
