I'm Paddy Miles, an Irish boy,
Just come across the sea;
For singing or for dancing, boys,
I think that I'll please ye.
I can sing and dance with any man,
As I did in days of yore;
And on Patrick's day I love to wear
The hat me father wore.

It's old, but it's beautiful,
The best you ever seen;
'Twas worn for more than ninety years
In that little Isle so green.
From my father's great ancestors
It descended with galore;
It's a relic of old dacency,
Is the hat me father wore.

I bid you all good-evening,
Good luck to you, I say;
And when I cross the ocean,
I hope for me you'll pray.
I'm going to my happy land,
In a place called Ballymore;
To be welcomed back to Paddy's land
With the hat me father wore.-Chorus.

And when I do return again
The boys and girls to see,
I hope that with old Erin's style
You'll kindly welcome me.
With the songs of dear old Ireland,
To cheer me more and more,
And make me Irish heart feel glad
With the hat me father wore.-Chorus.
