Transcription

Paddy and the Barber

It was in this town & not far from this spot.
A barber once set up a neat little shop.
He was so good natured & his smile was so sweet.
It was said he could coax people out of the street with his lather and shave 'em, lather-&-shave 'em, latherum-shave 'em & frizzle 'em free.
