Since Terry First Joined the Gang.

My name it is Mike Slattery,
And from Ireland I came,
And I've a son who's a big blackguard,
And Terrence is his name;
He wears a gold watch and chain,
And he calls it a "supper," and a "slang;"
Oh! my heart is broke, God knows it is,
Since Terry first joined the "gang."

Chorus.
He'll come rolling home in the morning,
And he'll give the door the divil's own bang;
Oh! my heart is broke, God knows it is,
Since Terry first joined the "gang."

When he came home last Thursday night,
Sure I talked to him very nice;
When he said, old man, you're getting too fresh,
And we'll soon have to put you on ice;
He told the old woman for to take a drop,
And shut up giving him her slang;
Oh! her heart is broke, God knows it is,
Since Terry first joined the "gang."-Chorus.

Sure, he stands upon the corner,
From morning until night;
And if the policeman says "move on!"
He'll spit at him with spite;
He went to the market only yesterday,
And there he stole a big nam,
And he got three months in the Penitentiary,
Along with the rest of the " gang."- Chorus.
