Wearing of the Green
Oh, paddy dear and did you hear The news that's going 'round The shamrock is forbid by law To grow on Irish ground Saint Patrick's name no more you'll hear His colors can't be seen They've gone and passed a law against The wearing of the green Sure I looked to neighbor Tandy And he took me by the hand And he said how's dear old Ireland And how does she stand? It's a most distressful country That ever you have seen They're hanging men and woman For the wearing of the green Repeat first two verses Men and women, For the wearing of the green.
