– Trad. 

Up to mighty London
Came an Irishman one day
As the streets were paved with gold
Sure everyone was gay
Singing songs of Piccadilly
Strand and Leicester Square
Till Paddy got excited
And he shouted to them there:

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
And farewell Leicester Square
It’s a long, long way to Tipperary
But my heart is 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

Molly wrote a neat reply
To Irish Paddy O‘
Saying: Mike Maloney
Wants to marry me
So leave the Strand and Piccadilly
Or you’ll be to blame
For love has surely drove me silly
Hoping you’re the same
