Paddy's short for Patrick, who is Ireland's patron saint
He drove away the serpents in story that's old and quaint
But Paddy's not concerned with any history to make
He doesn't mind if any lassie wants to chase his snake

Chorus

Paddy went a strollin' one lazy summer day
He came upon a leprechaun, the little elf did say,
"If you can catch me Paddy, you'll be a rich man when you're old!"
Paddy killed that fucking leprechaun and stold his pot of gold

Chorus

So, Paddy left this place, he left quite suddenly
He settled down in Memphis T-E-N-N-E-S-S-E-E
He ran real fast, he ran real hard, he ran right out of breath
'Cause Paddy was responsible for Elvis Presley's death
But Elvis isn't dead
He is still alive
Living in Kalamazoo
Eating at Burger King
And if he were here tonight, he'd sing:

Hey Paddy
Play a song for me
I paid $4 cover charge
Less Demerol for me

Paddy took a fever, he nearly lost his head
And early the next morning they found Paddy stone cold dead
They held a wake to celebrate the man that used to be
Paddy woke up screaming "How come no one invited me?!"
