Paddy O’Dea

Mermaid

Paddy O’Dea

.

Ole Paddy O’Dea lived by the bay

Of the beautiful Emerald Isle.

Fishermen say, there are mermaids at play,

And he had been searching awhile.

.

Peter O’toole knew of a pool

Where the finned ladies were known to swim.

The very thought of it, made Paddy drool,

But Peter just wouldn’t show him.

.

So Paddy thought, then went out and bought

Grumpy Peter a barrel of rum

Soon the route to that pool, Paddy was taught

When Paddy made Peter his chum.

.

Say what you may of Paddy O’Dea

After he got wind in his sails.

But it may explain why they look that way,

Since all of his children have scales.
