Hello Patsy Fagan

Lyrics

Chorus
Hello Patsy Fagan, I hear the girls all cry
Hello Patsy Fagan, you’re the apple of me eye
You’re a decent boy from Ireland, no one can deny
You’re a hare’m, scare’m, devil may care’m, decent Irish boy

I’m working here in Glasgow, I’ve a decent job
Carrying bricks and mortar, me pay is fifteen bob
I get up in the morning, I rise up with the lark
And as I’m walking down the street, I hear the girls remark
chorus

Now sure there’s one among you, would like to marry me
I’ll take you to a little home across the Irish sea
I’ll dress you up in satin, please you all I can
And let the people see that I’m a decent Irish man
chorus

The day that I left Ireland, t’was many years ago
I left me home in Antrim where the pigs and praties grow
But since I left auld Ireland, it’s always been my plan
To let the people see that I’m a decent Irish man
chorus
