It's A Long Way To Tipperary Sung By John McCormack




Up to mighty London came
An Irish Lad one day,
All the streets were paved with
So everyone was gay!
Singing songs of Picadilly,
Strand and Leicester Square,
'Till Paddy got excited then
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
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
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, thats 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
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
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.
