Verse 1:
Dm
"Oh Mrs. McGrath," the sergeant said,
F C
"Would you like a soldier of your son, Ted?
C
With a scarlet cloak and a fine cocked hat,
Dm
Mrs. McGrath wouldn't you like that?"

Chorus:
Dm
With your too-ri-aa, fol-did-dle-di-aa,
F C
Too-ri-oo-ri-oo-ri-aa, too-ri-aa, fol-
Dm
Did-dle-di-aa, too-ri-oo-ri-oo-ri-aa

Verse 2:
Dm
Mrs. McGrath lived on the shore
F C
And after seven years or more
C
she spied a ship come into the bay
Dm
with her son from far away

Verse 3:
Dm
"Oh, Captain dear, where have you been.
F C
Have you been out sailin' on the Mediteren'.
C
Have you any news of my son Ted.
Dm
Is he livin' or is he dead?"

Chorus:
Dm
With your too-ri-aa, fol-did-dle-di-aa,
F C
Too-ri-oo-ri-oo-ri-aa, too-ri-aa, fol-
Dm
Did-dle-di-aa, too-ri-oo-ri-oo-ri-aa

Verse 4:
Dm
Now came Ted without any legs
F C
And in their place two wooden pegs

She kissed him a dozen times or two
Dm
Saying "My God Ted is it you?"

Verse 5:
Dm
"Now were you drunk or were you blind
F C
When you left your two fine legs behind?
C
Or was it walking upon the sea
Dm
That wore your two fine legs away?"

Chorus:
Dm
With your too-ri-aa, fol-did-dle-di-aa,
F C
Too-ri-oo-ri-oo-ri-aa, too-ri-aa, fol-
Dm
Did-dle-di-aa, too-ri-oo-ri-oo-ri-aa

Verse 6:
Dm
"No I wasn't drunk and I wasn't blind
F C
When I left my two fine legs behind.
C
a cannon ball on the fifth of May
Dm
Tore my two fine legs away."

Verse 7:
Dm
"Now Teddy boy," the widow cried
F C
"Your two fine legs was your mother's pride
C
Them stumps of a tree won't do at all
Dm
Why didn't you run from the cannon ball?"

Chorus:
Dm
With your too-ri-aa, fol-did-dle-di-aa,
F C
Too-ri-oo-ri-oo-ri-aa, too-ri-aa, fol-
Dm
Did-dle-di-aa, too-ri-oo-ri-oo-ri-aa

Verse 8:
Dm
All foreign wars, I do proclaim
F C
Live on blood and a mother's pain
C
I'd rather have my son as he used to be
Dm
than the king of America and his whole navy

Chorus:
Dm
With your too-ri-aa, fol-did-dle-di-aa,
F C
Too-ri-oo-ri-oo-ri-aa, too-ri-aa, fol-
Dm
Did-dle-di-aa, too-ri-oo-ri-oo-ri-aa
