Paddy Doyle To me Way-ay-ay yah! We'll pay Paddy Doyle for his boots! We'll all drink brandy and gin! We'll all shave under the chin! We'll all throw dirt (shit) at the cook! Who stole poor Paddy Doyle's boots! The dirty ol' man's on the poop! We'll bouse 'er up and be done! Short-drag shanty. From Colcord- Songs of American Sailormen; Hugill- Shanties from the 7 Seas. Used only (according to these sources) for bunting a rolled sail up onto a yard. RG
