look up any word, like rimming:
paddys lamentation is a song about the Irish immigrants who came to America during the 19th century. About the Irish men and boys who as soon as they got off the boat had a rifle put in his hand, forced to fight for the union army for someone else'e freedom.
Paddys Lamentation can be heard in the movie Gangs of New York.
