Patrick my primitive painter of art
You will always and ever be near to my heart
I will never cross water, never cross sea
We will always be with you, Jockie, Mally, and me.

The things that we have are all that we need
You have your painting, and I like to
Read books by people of feeling, someone sincere
They remind me of you and what we have here.

Patrick my primitive painter of art
You will always and ever be near to my heart
I will never cross water, never cross sea
We will always be with you, Jockie, Mally, and me.

If in our lifetime we find peace of mind
We'll remember the bad days that we left behind
Thinking only of love and what it can bring
You paint songs for the children, a song we'll always sing.

Patrick my primitive painter of art
You will always and ever be near to my heart
I will never cross water, never cross sea
We will always be with you, Jockie, Mally, and me.
