When Paddy McGinty plays the harp
you haven't to have a chance,
When Paddy McGinty plays the harp
you gotta get up and dance;
Feet are wiggling, toes are jiggling,
making the rafters ring, ta-ta,
When Paddy McGinty plays the harp
you gotta get up and sing.

Too-ra-loora, too-ra-lie,
When you're feeling low
you'll soon be feeling high;
It's wonderful Irish music
that is neither sharp nor flat,
When Paddy McGinty plays like that.

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday,
he's never got the blues day,
And there you'll find McGinty,
doing the best he can;
Thursday, Friday, Saturday,
you should up to hear him play,
Every day is Paddy's Day,
oh, what a busy man!

Too-ra-loora, too-ra-lie,
If you're feeling low,
you'll soon be feeling high;
It's wonderful Irish music
that is neither sharp nor flat,
When Paddy McGinty plays like that.

When Paddy McGinty plays the harp
you haven't to have a chance,
When Paddy McGinty plays the harp
you gotta get up and dance;
The feet are wiggling, toes are jiggling,
making the rafters ring, ta-ta,
When Paddy McGinty plays the harp,
you gotta get up and sing.

Too-ra-loora, too-too-ra-lay,
If you're feeling sad,
you'll soon be feeling gay;
It's wonderful Irish music
that is neither flat nor sharp,
When Paddy McGinty plays the harp.

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday,
he's never got the blues day,
And there you'll find McGinty,
doing the best he can;
Thursday, Friday, Saturday,
you should up to hear him play,
Every day is Paddy's day,
oh, what a busy man!

Too-ra-loora, too-ra-lay,
If you're feeling low,
you'll soon be feeling gay;
It's wonderful Irish music
that is neither flat nor sharp,
When Paddy McGinty plays the harp.
