Text

VERSE 01: Paddy Mack drove a hack/Up and down Broadway,/Pat had one expression and he’d use it ev’ry day;/Any time he’d grab a fare, to take them for a ride,/Paddy jumped up on the seat, cracked his whip and cried:
CHORUS 01: “Where do we go from here, boys,/Where do we go from here?/Anywhere from Harlem to a Jersey City pier,”/When Pat would spy a pretty girl, he’d whisper in her ear,/”Oh joy, Oh boy, Where do we go from here?”/here?”
VERSE 02: One fine day, on Broadway,/Pat was driving fast,/When the street was blown to pieces by a subway blast;/Down the hole poor Paddy went, a thinkin’ of his past,/Then he says, says he, I think these words will be my last:
CHORUS 02: “Where do we go from here, boys,/Where do we go from here?”/Paddy’s neck was in the wreck, but still he had no fear;/He saw a dead man next to him and whispered in his ear,/”Oh joy, Oh boy, Where do we go from here?/here?”
VERSE 03: First of all, at the call,/When the war began,/Pat enlisted in the army as a fighting man;/When the drills began, they’d walk a hundred miles a day,/Tho’ the rest got tired, Paddy always used to say:
CHORUS 03: “Where do we go from here, boys,/Where do we go from here?/Slip a pill to Kaiser Bill and make him shed a tear;/And when we see the enemy we’ll shoot them in the rear,/Oh joy, Oh boy, Where do we go from here?”/here?”
