LODGINGS IN PAT m'GARADIE'8.                    5&
" Slash away, till your bellies are soreó
Show them your ateing dexterities. There's mate and dhrink in the store,
And lodgings in Pat McGaradie's!"
Whack, fol de rol, efco
The porter and ale were marked " tay,"
And the whiskey "spice" and "onions;" And they cried, "Let us all tear away,
And give our stomachs new linings! Such luck niver happened beforeó
Pill up yer cups wid the rarities; There's mate and dhrink in the store,
And lodgings in Pat McGaradie's!"
Whack, fol de rol, etc
The dogs, from all quarters around,
Were never before so befriended; And while the good things did abound,
The beggars were duly attended. " Now let us be kind to the poor,
And we'll get a good name for our charities; There's mate and dhrink in the store,
And lodgings in Pat McGaradie's!"
Whack, fol de rol, etc.
But, the grocer's account being due,
He asked for his money quite civil, And was tould by the beggarly crew
To go and seek that from the divil! With rage how he cursed and he swore 1
They had ruined him ateing his rarities; He turned bankrupt, and shut up his store,
Through those doings at Pat McGaradie's.
Whack, fol de rol, etc.
If a fellow has but one eye, let him get a wife, and she will be his other I.
