The Night that Paddy Murphy Died

The night that Paddy Murphy died I never shall forget
The whole damn crew got stinking drunk and some ain't sober yet;
The only thing we did that night that filled my heart with fear
We took the ice from off the corpse and put it in the beer

cho: And that's how we showed our respect for Paddy Murphy
     That's how we showed our honor and our pride;
     That's how we showed our respect for Paddy Murphy
     Our respect for Paddy Murphy on the night that Paddy died.

The night that Paddy Murphy died I never shall forget
The whole damn crew got stinking drunk and some ain't sober yet;
The other thing we did that night that filled our hearts with fear
We took the coins from off his eyes, and spent it all on beer.

Note: From my misspent youth on the streets of Brooklyn, ca. 1946 RG
