VERSE 01: Up to mighty London came an Irish man one day,/As the streets are paved with gold, sure ev'ryone was gay;/Singing songs of Piccadilly, Strand and Leicester Square,/Till Paddy got excited, then shouted to them there:CHORUS: It's a long way to Tipperary, It's a long way to go;/It's a long way to Tipperary, to the sweetest girl I know!/Goodbye Piccadilly, farewell, Leicester Square,/It's a long, long way to Tipperary, but my heart's right there!VERSE 02: Paddy wrote a letter to his Irish Molly O',/Saying, "Should you not receive it, write and let me know!"/"If I make mistakes in "spelling," Molly dear," said he,/"Remember it's the pen that's bad, don't lay the blame on me."VERSE 03: Molly wrote a neat reply to Irish Paddy O',/Saying, "Mike Maloney wants to marry me, and so/Leave the Strand and Piccadilly, or you'll be to blame,/For love has fairly drove me silly hoping you're the same!"
