Paddy Valentine


‘The song that’s now heard everywhere about, is Paddy sure don’t care, But tell me Paddy do you think It’s right to care for naught but drink? To waste your money, health and time, No doubt to you is very prime; No girl of sense would e’er incline To have an Irish Valentine, For, if for me you were to try I’d say no Irish need apply’.
