P stands for Paddy

As I walked out on a bright May morn'
To take a pleasant walk
I sat down on an old stone wall
To hear two lovers talk
To hear what they might say, my friend
Hear what they might say
So I might learn a little about love
Before I go away

"Don't sit down beside me", he said
"Not now or any time
I hear you have another lad
Your heart's no longer mine"
"Your heart's no longer mine", he said
"Your heart's no longer mine
I hear you have another lad
Your heart's no longer mine"

"P" stands for Paddy, I suppose
"J" for my love John
"W" stands for the false Willy-O
And Johnny's the fairest man
Johnny's the fairest man, he said
Johnny's the fairest man
And I don't care what anybody says
For Johnny's the fairest man

"I'll go and climb a tall fine tree
Up to a wild bird's nest
When I'll come down I'll care some more
About the girl I love the best
The girl I love the best", he said
"The girl that I love best
When I'll come down I'll care some more
About the girl I love the best"
