The Paddy Calypso (A Celtic Celebration)

To the tune of “Gossip Calypso” from the early sixties …

Paddy Calypso … Paddy Calypso;
hear all about the
Paddy-Mac Craic.
Give him the ball … one
shake of the hips … oh!
Paddy’s on his way again –
attack-attack-tack!

Big Paddy Mac
just wants to attack,
he’ll never
take a backward step
if he can avoid it.
Everything he does,
creates a buzz and
simply takes
your breath away.

(He’s a one-off!)

A “Paddy Whack”
is genius … a knack,
he’s got it.
No-one showed him how
… it’s inborn, an instinct.
All he wants to do
is turn the screw
and play the game
“The Celtic Way”.

(All together, now!)

Paddy Calypso … Paddy Calypso;
hear all about the
Paddy-Mac Craic.
Feed him the ball … he
gives ’em the slip … so
Paddy’s on his way again –
attack-attack-tack!

He gets some flak
for not trackin’ back …
no, really!
Can anybody tell me
why he should do that?
Give the Bhoy his head …
he’ll knock ’em dead
and turn the tide
the Celtic’s way.

(All together, now!)

Paddy Calypso … Paddy Calypso;
hear all about the
Paddy-Mac Craic.
Just play him in … and
he’ll let it rip … so
Paddy’s on his way again –
attack-attack-tack!
