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 dea,” said he
“Remember it’s the pen that’s bad, don’t lay the blame on me”

Molly wrote a neat reply to Irish Paddy O
Saying “Mike Maloney wants to marry me
And so leave the Strand and Piccadilly or you’ll be to blame
For love has fairly drove me silly hoping you’re the same!”
