PATRICK'S DAY PARADE.

Saint Patrick was a gentleman,
Sure his name we celebrate,
And on the seventeenth of March
The Irish concentrate-
A bran new hat on each man's head,
And a green necktie that's newly made;
The left foot first, then lightly tread
In the Patrick's day parade-
Then two by two away we go,
Up Broadway, through rain or snow;
We'd face the divil, friend or foe,
In the Patrick's day parade.

Chorus.
We shout hurrah for Erin-go-bragh
And all the Yankee nation;
Stars and stripes, And shamrock bright arrayed;
The Irish shout, the girls turn out
To see the celebration;
We march, stiff as starch, in the Patrick's day parade.

You should see the marshall on his horse,
Like Napoleon Bonaparte:
And as he rides along the line
He'd break each lady's heart-
And if the rain should fall down then.
We hoist our umbrellas high;
For history states that Irishmen
Are always warm and dry-
Then two by two away we go,
Up Broadway, through rain or snow;
We'd face the divil, friend or foe,
In the Patrick's day parade.-Chorus.

Then here's success to Patrick's day,
Though it comes but once a year;
And though I'm not a drinking man,
On that day I'd drink my beer­I'll wear the shamrock in my hat,
The green, my boys, 'twill never fade
And march along with Dan and Pat
In the Patrick's day parade-
Then two by two away we go,
Up Broadway, through rain or snow;
We'd face the divil, friend or foe,
In the Patrick's day parade.-Chorus.
