Paddy O’Dea


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.
