Thread Name: Lyr Req: Paddy McGinty's Goat (Weston/Lee)
Subject: Lyr Add: PADDY MCGINTY'S GOAT
Combining a couple of the above messages, and correcting(?!) from memory, the last verse (Not in the Digitrad list) with line breaks:

Now old McGinty's goat had a wond'rous appetite,
One day for breakfast he had some dynamite.
A half box of matches he swallowed all serene;
Then out he went and gobbled up a quart of parafin.
He sat by the fireside; he didn't give a hang,
'Til he swallowed a spark, and exploded with a *BANG*
Now, if you go to heav'n, you can bet a dollar note,
That the angel with the whiskers on is Paddy McGinty's goat.
