On Easter Monday morning when the boys did hear the bugle’s sound
Paddy raised the flag of war down in his native town
First he went to make his peace with dear old Father Maher
Then went and blew the barracks up and wrecked half of Mullingar

When Ireland takes her place among the nations of the world
And her flag of orange, white and green to the four winds is unfurled
When you read the roll of honour you will find marked with a star
Patrick Sarsfield Mulligan, the man from Mullingar!
