W:I was born in sweet Tipperary town, three thousand miles away. W: W:Chorus: W:Hooray, me boys, hooray, no more do I wish for to roam, W:for the sun it will shine in the harvest time, to welcome poor Paddy home. W: W:The girls they were gay and frisky, they'd take you by the hand, W:sayin': Jimmy mo chroi, will you come with me, to welcome this stranger home. W: W:Chorus W: W:In came the foreign nation, and scattered all over the land. W:The horse and the cow, the pig, sheep and sow fell into the strangers' hands. W: W:Chorus W: W:The Scotsman can boast of his thistle, and England can boast of the rose, W:But Paddy can boast of his emerald isle, where the dear little shamrock grows. W: W:Chorus
