Lyrics

Maddy Prior and Melanie Harrold sing Michael Finnigan

There was an old man called Michael Finnigan
He grew whiskers on his chinnigan
The wind came up and blew them in again
Poor old Michael Finnigan, begin again

There was an old man called Michael Finnigan
He kicked up an awful dinnigan
Because they would not let him sing again
Poor old Michael Finnigan, begin again

There was old man called Michael Finnigan
He went fishing with a pinnigan
Caught a fish and threw him in again
Poor old Michael Finnigan, begin again

There was old man called Michael Finnigan
Climbed a tree and barked his shinnigan
Took off several yards of skinnigan
Poor old Michael Finnigan, begin again

There was old man called Michael Finnigan
He grew fat and then grew thin again
Then he tried and had to begin again
Poor old Michael Finnigan, begin again

(repeat first verse)
