Michael Finnegan Lyrics

There was an old man named Michael Finnegan

He grew whiskers on his chinnegan

They grew out and then grew in again

Poor old Michael Finnegan begin again!


There was an old man named Michael Finnegan

He went fishing with a pinnegan

Caught a fish and dropped it in again

Poor old Michael Finnegan Begin again!


There was an old man named Michael Finnegan

He grew fat and he grew thin again

Then he died, and had to begin again

Poor old Michael Finnegan begin again!
