IT`S A LONG, LONG WAY TO TIPPERARY
Up to mighty London came an Irishman one day,
As the streets are paved with gold, sure ev`ryone was gay;
Singing songs of Piccadilly, Strand and Leicester Square,
Till Paddy got excited, then he shouted to them there:
`lt`s a long way to Tipperary,
It`s a long way to go;
It`s a long way to Tipperary,
To the sweetest girl I know!
Farewell, Leicester Square!
It`s a long, long way to Tipperary,
But my heart`s right there! `
Paddy wrote a letter to his Irish Molly O,
Saying, `Should you not receive it,
Write and let me know!
If I make mistakes in spelling, Molly dear,` said he
` Remember it`s the pen that`s bad,
Don`t lay the blame on me.`
Molly wrote a neat reply to Irish Paddy 0.
Saying. `Mike Mahoney wants to marry me, and so
Leave the Strand and Piccadilly, or you`ll be to blame
For love has fairly drove me silly, hoping you`re the same!`
