Off to Tipperary in the morning

Lyrics

Sure I’m tired a roaming round and so I’m off to pack my grip
I’m off to book my passage on a mighty powerful ship
I’ll be bound to send a telegram, the day I reach the quay
Just to tell folks back home to be expecting me

CHORUS
With my shillelagh under my arm and a twinkle in my eye
I’ll be off to Tipperary in the morning
With my shillelagh under my arm and a toora loora lay
I’ll be welcome in the home where I was born in
Me mother told the neighbours, I’m going to settle down
Phil the Fluter’s coming out to play me round the town
With my shillelagh under my arm and a twinkle in my eye
I’ll be off to Tipperary in the morning

Sure, I’m feeling mighty fine and I’ve got bags of money too
And I mean to give the folks back home, a proper Irish do
There’ll be such a welcome waiting for me there upon the mat
I can just imagine people asking: ‘Ah, how are you Jack’ ?
Chorus
