American Old Time Song Lyrics: 04 Lackawanna Spooners
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 4
Here wi are two Lackawanna spooners;
While Ye're here, keep your eyes upon us;
We loaded coal from Harlem to Gowanus,
We'n| the two selected spooners of the gang.
When ire go home, our families we embrace;
We eat our meals with elegance and grace;
For opi osition shovellers we long to have a race;
We are the two selected spooners of the gang.
As through the streets we walked along like soldiers.
And baskets and shovels we have on our shoulders-
For to get a job there's none can be bolder
Than the two selected spooners of the gang.
Saturday nights we stand upon the corners,
With the gang that wears the Roll of Honor;
At Hibernian Hall we are going to raise a banner,
To represent the Lackawauua gang.
We all get shaved in the one barber shop,
We use the same razor, lather brush and cup;
For bay rum and tonic we long to have a sup,
To stimulate the Lackawanna gang.-Chorus.
We've acumulated wealth with hard work and endurance-
With other scallawags we have no interference;
We have been hard tried by work and perseverance-
The two selected spooners of the gang.
With the General Committee we are the two great big cards-
Like " Muldoon. the Solid Man," we hold a grip in the ward;
We could put you on the pipes or the City Boulevard,
The two selected spooners of the gang.-Chorus.
