Lyrics

Lachy: One fine day after working hard

I was walking home from my Da's farmyard

With a rumble in me belly skipping one, two, three

Wondering what my ma had awaiting me

I asked me ma, "What's in that pot?"

Emma: "Ah, son"

Lachy: She said

Emma: "There's an awful lot

It's a recipe your grandma gave to me

As we danced to the song of the one, two, three

'Tis Irish stew, oh Irish stew

Just boil in the pot and it's good for you

It's filled with everything you need"

Lachy: As she danced to the song of the one, two, three

Wiggles: Oh Irish stew, oh Irish stew

Just boil in the pot and it's good for you

Not a devil of a bit that you cannot do

When you've got a belly full of Irish stew

(Whistling during instrumental break)

Lachy: The very next day that I awoke

I'd a skip in me step and a song in me throat

I said to me ma "How can this be?"

Emma: "I'll tell you son with a one, two, three

It's the boiling in the pot, when you mix up the lot,

That gives you the strength that you have not got

Puts the goodness in your body and the dance in your shoe

And gives you all the strength for a boy like you"

Lachy: (scat singing)

Emma: Have it for your lunch and have it for your tea

You'll skip down the road singing 'diddle-ee-dee'

With a tra-la-la, skipping one, two, three

It'll keep you strong, as a boy should be

(Whistling during instrumental break)

Lachy: Now I thank me ma in every way

For making me the man that I am today

She fed me with that magic brew

The bubbling of the pot of the Irish stew

Wiggles: Oh Irish stew, oh Irish stew

Just boil in the pot and it's good for you

Not a devil of a bit that you cannot do

When you've got a belly full of Irish stew
