I’m Paddy Flynn McMichael,

And me stories rather grim.

Me Family’s reputation

Goes back to me Uncle Jim.

.

Me fist be known for Donegal,

Down to Kilkenny town.

And ner there ever been a man,

To knock ol Paddy down.

.

Me stubborn Irish temper,

had got me in some scuffs

But when it came to fightin,

Seemed I never had enough.

.

From boxing rings to taverns,

And Pubs throughout the land.

Many a man had come to town,

To test ol Paddy’s hand.

.

Last Sunday walking home from church,

I spied a wee girl walkin‘.

I smiled and said Good morning Miss,

And we commenced to talkin‘.

.

I said, me name is Paddy,

And I’ve not seen you around.

She answered, your that bully,

From the other side of town.

.

My life it flashed before me eyes,

She’d put me in my place.

I knew that I had met my match,

In that angelic face.

.

Somehow that fateful meeting,

Has truly changed my life.

No more drinkin, no more brawlin,

And that girl became my wife.

.

As a tough guy, once upon a time,

I’ll try to make this clear.

When she asks domestic questions,

My answer is “Yes Dear”
