Lyrics

Up to mighty London came An Irish man one day All the streets were paved with gold So everyone was gay! Singing songs of Piccadilly Strand, and Leicester Square 'Til Paddy got excited and He shouted to them there: 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. 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. 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". 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. 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.
