Verse

Mammy sings wonderfully

Lamenting melodies

Then Daddy comes home from work

He falls in and goes beserk

Priest calls around for tea

He always seemed so terribley lonely

Talks of Industrial School

As he looks at me so cruel

Chorus

On Paddy's Day

Where they march in Amerikay

On Paddy's Day

Where they dance down Cricklewood Way

On Paddy's Day

Where they sang round Botnay Bay

On Paddy's Day

For my sanity, I'll pray

(Just the same as the verses)

Da fought the black and Tans

So did our Uncle Dan

Then there was Civil War

and we ne'er saw Dan anymore

We all have to walk to Cobh

A family of thriteen both young and old

Transport our poverty

To a room and a ditch 'cross the sea

Chorus

On Paddy's Day

Where they march in Amerikay

On Paddy's Day

Where they dance down Cricklewood Way

On Paddy's Day

Where they sang round Botnay Bay

For my sanity, I'll pray

For this next part the chords in brakets are played only shortly (rhythm-wise i mean)
