Thread Name: Lyr Req: Paddy McGinty's Goat (Weston/Lee)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: paddy m'gintys goat
Always heard that last verse like this:

They say that that goat had a fearsome appetite
And that one day for breakfast, he ate some dynamite
A box of wooden matches and some nitro glycer - een
Then by way of dessert, he polished off a quart of kerosene

He sat by the fi - re; he didn't give a hang
Swallowed a spark and exploded with a bang
Well, if you ever get to heaven, you can bet your bottom note
That the angel you see with whiskers on is Paddy McGinty's goat
