GUEST,Garydon Lyr Req: Paddy and the Whale (18) RE: Lyr: Paddy O'Brien left Ireland in glee. 02 Jul 01

The version I know is

Paddy Maloney left the isle of green
he had a strange notion to sail the front sea
He set a whale hatchet boys called Georgie About
The whale the she fished made his head turn about

Capt's haulin Cod Callin, Harpoonin and more

Now Paddy he's never been sailin before
It made his heart beat when he heard a loud roar
A whale at night off the masthead did cry
Oh my god said poor Paddy I'll be et by and by


Then Paddy was torrid and he reached for the mast
He took hold of the gripper and then he held fast
The boat she gave a tip boys and Pad lost his grip
And into the whales belly the silly fool slipped


He was in that whales belly for 6 months and a day
till one morin by chance to it's throat he made way
That whale she gave a hooch boys and then she did blow
A mile into the air went ol Paddy Maloney


Now Paddy got landed quite safe on the shore
And he swears he'll not go to sea any more
The next time he has such adventures of notion
It'll be when the railway runs over the ocean

Next time I think I'll cut and past that felt like alot of typing to me. Off to work w/ me
