lyrics

You'll never know finer wrinkles as intimately as hers,
those rosey cheeks may have lost their glow but her eyes they twinkle on.
And though she stoops and how she creaks and her hair is like the furze,
no truer word you'll ever hear than when she shouts at you, "You're Wrong!"

Welly to the pedal, Paddy, Knife your Raleigh through the wind,
if you let your beauty fly from you you'll miss her toothless grin.
Welly to the pedal, Paddy, Knife your Raleigh through the wind,
and catch your darling dear and tell her you love her still.

And don't you miss her jerks and querks and all her little whims
and the exotic sight as she takes down the scythe to shave her hairy pins.
And don't you wish you could feel again her moulding, folding skin,
and grab her by the ample arse though it's dragging on the floor.

Welly to the pedal, Paddy, Knife your Raleigh through the wind,
if you let your beauty fly from you you'll miss her toothless grin.
Welly to the pedal, Paddy, Knife your Raleigh through the wind,
and catch your darling dear and tell her you love her still.

And though she's old and grey you'll ne'er find the like of her again,
she's never erred, never strayed unlike your sheep upon the hill.
So keep your hobbies out in the shed, Paddy, 'cause the last straw for poor Maggie was...
when you blew the shite out of her kitchen with your bloody poitin still.

Welly to the pedal, Paddy, Knife your Raleigh through the wind,
if you let your beauty fly from you you'll miss her toothless grin.
Welly to the pedal, Paddy, Knife your Raleigh through the wind,
and catch your darling wife and tell her you love her still.
And for God's sake, Paddy, tell her...
..."I'll mend your kitchen, dear!"
