Saint Patrick was a gentleman,
And he came from decent people,
In Dublin town he built a church,
And on it put a steeple;
His father was a Gallagher,
His mother was a Brady,
His aunt was an O'Shaugnessy,
And his uncle was a Grady.
Then success to bold Saint Patrick's fist,
He was a saint so clever,
He gave the snakes and toads a twist,
And banished them forever!
