IT'S A LONG WAY TO TIPPERARY
 
div
 
Up to mighty London came an Irishman one day
As the streets are paved with gold, sure everyone was gay
Singing songs of Piccadilly, Strand and Leicester Square
Till Paddy got excited, then he shouted to them there.

Chorus: It's a long way to Tipperary
It's a long way to go
It's a long way to Tipperary
To the sweetest girl I know
Goodbye Piccadilly
Farewell Leicester Square
It's a long, long way to Tipperary
But my heart's right there.


Paddy wrote a letter to his Irish Molly O
Saying “Should you not receive it, write and let me know”
“If I make mistakes in spelling, Molly dear,” said he
“Remember it's the pen that's bad, don't lay the blame on me.”

Chorus:

Molly wrote a neat reply to Irish Paddy O
Saying, “Mike Maloney wants to marry me, and so
Leave the Strand and Piccadilly, or you'll be to blame
For love has fairly drove me silly hoping you're the same.”

Chorus:
