P FOR PADDY

As I walked out on a bright May morn,
to take a pleasant walk.
I sat me down upon an old stone wall,
to hear two lovers talk.
For to hear what they might say my friend,
hear what they might say.
So I might learn a little more about life
before I go away.

Chorus:
P stands for Paddy, I suppose.
J for my love John.
W stands for folks with you
and Johnny is the fairest man.
Johnny is the fairest man my dear,
Johnny is the fairest man.
And I don't care what anybody says
for Johnny is the fairest man.

Don't sit you down beside me, he said.
Not now nor any other day.
I hear that you have another little lad
and your heart's no longer mine.
Your heart's no longer mine he said,
Your heart's no longer mine.
I hear that you have another little lad
and your heart's no longer mine.

Chorus

I'll go climb a tall fine tree,
up to a Wild Bird's nest.
When I'll come down I'll care a little more
about the girl that I love best.
The girl that I love best he said,
the girl that I love best.
When I'll come down I'll care a little more
about the girl that I love best.
