paddle dooney

by Cassi

Paddle Dooney wicky wacky
Paddle Dooney way
Never seen a fatter ram
That ever did eat hay
The fur on that ram's back
It reached to the sky
Eagles build a nest
I heard the babies cry

(repeat til baby/child is asleep)

My grandfather is 100% Irish, and his mother sang this to my mother who passed it on to me, and I sing it to my son. As the story goes, she brought it with her from Ireland, but we've never been able to track it, or find where it originated. This song is incredibly close to my heart and i would love to know more about it.
