I'll sing of a band that used to play music in the street,
And if you heard it you would say it was anything but sweet;
They all played different instruments, the music was the same,
They were all one family, and Morgan was their name.

Johnny Morgan played the organ, the father beat the drum;
The sister played the tambourine, the brother went pom pom,
All alone on the old trombone, the music was so sweet,
They often got a penny to go into another street.

They used to say that Johnny was the smartest of them all,
Aud 'round the area windows he would often make a call;
His music was so lively, all the latest airs from France,
The servant girls could not keep still, the music made them dance
Johnny Morgan played the organ, &c.

Now one day John he chanced to play outside a lady's door,
And the lady said she'd never heard such music played before;'
It pleased her so, that you must know, she heavy sums would pay
To John, to stand outside the house, and play to her all day.
Johnny Morgan played the organ, &c.

John played upon his instrument, and pleased the lady so,
That when the time arrived to leave, she would not let him go;
She asked if he would marry her, which John did very soon.
Now on the organ Johnny Morgan plays her many a tune.
Johnny Morgan played the organ, &c
