Note: On the A7 chords that end a line, alternate between A7sus and A7 by adding and 
removing the 3rd fret B string to the standard A7 chord.





D A7 DMy father came here from his home in Ireland,
G D A7He was quiet but they said that he was wise.
D D7 G EHe and Mother did their best, gave us a home and all the rest,
E7 A7But to talk to us he never had the time.
D A7 DSure, he'd say "Pass the butter." or, "Come here young man."
G D A7Or, "Keep quiet." or, "No you can't have a dime."
D D7 G EUntil the day when I was leavin' when Dad finally found a reason
E7 A7For sharing his philosophy of life...
D A7 DHe said: "A monkey fart should smell like a banana,
G D A7English farts should smell like cups of tea;
D D7 G EThe farting of a fairy should be very light and airy,
E7 A7When a father farts I hope you'll think of me.
D A7 DAn Irish fart should always lilt with laughter,
G D A7It should melt your heart and melt your shorts as well,
D D7 G
EA lion's fart should roar with power, cuckoos should fart every hour,
E7 A7A nun's fart should have meaning but no smell;
D A7 DA strong man's fart should sound out like a trumpet,
G D A7A pretty girl's should barely even squeak,
D D7 G EBut the person you can trust is the one who'd rather bust
E7 A7Than ever let one rip right on the street..."
D A7 DWell, from my old man this really was an earful,
G D A7I tried to understand just what he meant;
D D7 G EHis words were primitive but strong so I wouldn't get them wrong,
E7 A7He was saying to be careful as I went.
D A7 DHe was saying to be happy as I could be,
G D A7He was saying watch my step and as I pass,
D D7 G ETo beware who I look up to, and whatever else I might do,
E7 (Hold) A7Know that most of what you get from folks is just escaping gas...
D A7 DHe said: "A monkey fart should smell like a banana,

D D7 G EThe farting of a fairy should be very light and airy,
E7 A7When a father farts I hope you'll think of me.
