Oh 50 years ago me father left old erins shore,
He landed here a shillelagh in hand and divil a little more
He got a job, then got a wife, then a family,
And then he died and left his old shillelagh stick to me.

Sure it's the same old shillelagh
Me father brought from ireland.
And divil a man prouder than he,
As he walked with it in his hand.
He'd lead the band on paddy's day
And twirle it round his mitt
And divil a bit we'd laught at it
Or dad would have a fit.
Sure with the same old shillelagh
Me father could lick a dozen men
As fast as they'd get up be gorry,
He'd knock'em down again
And many's the time he used it on me
To make me understand
The same old shillelagh
Me father brought from ireland.

I'm going on the police force, it's the only thing to do,
Instead of having one night stick,begorra I'll have two.
If there's afight I'll be alright, nobody bothers me,
Because I have the old shillelagh me father gave to me.

Sure it's the same old shillelagh
Me father brought from ireland.
And divil a man prouder than he,
As he walked with it in his hand.
He'd lead the band on paddy's day
And twirle it round his mitt
And divil a bit we'd laught at it
Or dad would have a fit.
Sure with the same old shillelagh
Me father could lick a dozen men
As fast as they'd get up be gorry,
He'd knock'em down again
And many's the time he used it on me
To make me understand
The same old shillelagh
Me father brought from ireland.
