Lyrics

VERSE 1
Paddy Mack drove a hack
Up and down Broadway,
Pat had one expression and he’d use it ev’ry day;
Anytime he’d grab a fare, to take them for a ride,
Paddy jumped upon the seat, cracked his whip and cried:

CHORUS 1
“Where do we go from here, boys,
Where do we go from here?
Anywhere from Harlem to a Jersey city pier;”
When Pat would spy a pretty girl, he’d whisper in her ear,
“Oh joy, Oh boy,
Where do we go from here?”
here?”

VERSE 2
One fine day, on Broadway,
Pat was driving fast,
When the street was blown to pieces
By a subway blast;
Down the hole poor Paddy went, a thinkin’ of his past,
The he says, says he, I think these words will be my last:

CHORUS 2
“Where do we go from here, boys,
Where do we go from here?
Paddy’s neck was in the wreck, but still he had no fear;
He saw a dead man next to him and whispered in his ear,
“Oh joy, Oh boy,
Where do we go from here?”

VERSE #
First of all, at the call,
When the war began,
Pat enlisted in the army as a fighting man;
When the drills began, they’d walk a hundred miles a day,
Tho’ the rest got tired, Paddy always used to say:

CHORUS 3
“Where do we go from here, boys,
Where do we go from here?
Slip a pill to Kaiser Bill and make him shed a tear;
And when we see the enemy we’ll shoot them in the rear,
He saw a dead man next to him and whispered in his ear,
“Oh joy, Oh boy,
Where do we go from here?”
