My Granny said that I'm Mulligan Stew

But I think American is what I am;

There is a Woockmann and a Sanders,

And don't forget, VanLandingham.

In the mix there is a Parkhurst

And Thompson, I've recalled.

They were a medially of farming folk

And Sailors, as duty called.

 

I'm English, Dutch, and Jewish-German;

And Scott-Irish, Grandpa said.

It seems that I am Goulash,

And America, as I've said.

But there's no doubt the gift of gab

Is part and parcel of my own,

But I duly swear and testify;

I never kissed that Blarney Stone.
