When Eve was in the garden
Adam climbed an apple tree
He went aloft up to the top
To see what he could see

He gazed in awe of what he saw
That made the poor man grieve
For Patrick John Maloney
Stood there, whispering to Eve

"Come, kiss me love and miss me love
And dry your bitter tears
My loving you'll remember now
For many, many years"

"Be happy love, be satisfied
I left you in the pink
There's many a man, may want a bride
Maloney wants a drink"

Salome danced for Paddy
Taking off her seven veils
Salome said, "Maloney
That's a trick that never fails"

Maloney put Salome's
Only clothing in a sack
"I'll run along now to the pawn
And bring your bundle back"

"Come, kiss me love and miss me love
And dry your bitter tears
My loving you'll remember now
For many, many years"

"Be happy love, be satisfied
I left you in the pink
There's many a man, may want a bride
Maloney wants a drink"

From London to Nebraska
And from Glasgow to Hong Kong
From Cardiff to Alaska
From Peking to Saigon

Ahh, wherever the cattle's are lonely
I know that in his role
Ahh, it's there you'll find Maloney
Awaiting to console

"Ah, come kiss me love and miss me love
And dry your bitter tears
My loving you'll remember
For many, many years"

"Be happy love, be satisfied
I left you in the pink
There's many a man may want a bride
Maloney wants a drink"
