P Stands For Paddy

P stands for Paddy I suppose
J's for my love John
And the W stands for false Willy O
But Johnny is the fairest man

As I roved out one May morning
To take a pleasant walk
I sat myself down by an old stone wall
To hear two lovers talk

To hear what they might say my dear
To hear what they might say
That I might know a little more about love
Before I go away

Oh, P stands for Paddy I suppose
J for her love John
And the W stands for false Willy O
But Johnny is the fairest man

Come sit you down beside me he said
Together on the green
For it's been three quarters of a year or more
Since together we have been

I'll not sit down beside you she said
Now or no other time
For I hear you have another little girl
And your heart's no longer mine

No your heart's no longer mine my dear
Your heart's no longer mine
For it's just three quarters of a year or more
Your heart's no longer mine

P stands for Paddy I suppose
J for her love John
And the W stands for false Willy O
But 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
Johnny is the fairest man

Now I'll go up the tall tall tree
and rob the wild bird's nest
And when I come down I'll give a little love
To the girl that I love best

To the girl that I love best my dear
The girl that I love best
And when I come down I'll give a little love
To the girl that I love best

P stands for Paddy I suppose
J for her love John
And the W stands for false Willy O
But Johnny is the fairest man

P stands for Paddy I suppose
J for her love John
And now I know a little more about love
Before I travel on
