Paddy was a farmer

Paddy was a farmer, ploughing every day,

Up and down the furrows he went his merry way,

Until one day, when it happened,

When he found a hidden cache,

Revealed by his plough, he was totally aghast.

Well, by George, he shouted,

I am rich as rich can be,

Gold and jewels and coins and stuff,

That’s the end of farming for me.

Johnny was a barber

Johnny was a barber; he loved his job, he did,

Cutting people’s hair and mowing others wigs.

Until one day he reeled back, shocked by what he saw,

A hole in the head of a customer, a man quite old and poor,

Why don’t you go to the doctor? he asked the man out loud,

To get it fixed and filled in quick, that’s what I’d do, he cried,

Oh, no, I can’t do that, the old man then answered him,

I have had it, there, for forty years; it’s now part of me, he grinned,

I would miss it, that hole up there; he went on to explain,

Please trim the hear, he said to John, but mind the hole he warned.
