Nowt Butt a Ballad

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 31 March 2021, note.

Patrick McGinty, an Irishman of note,
Fell in for a fortune and thought he’d have a goat,
Said Paddy, “Now of goat’s milk, I will have me fill”,
But when he got the nanny home, he found it was a bill.

Straight away, this is not mine. This is part of an Irish folk song I learned as a boy. Here it is, the best audio version I could find, performed by a superb Irish performer, the late, great Val Doonican.
