Sung by Miss Kate Furlong.

On the fifteenth of September,
I dressed up neat and gay,
For to join the grand procession
I at once set on my way;
There was tinkers, tailors, scavengers.
And ladies, short and tall,
All went to see the opening
Of our new lovely town hall.
There was Mr. Michael Murphy,
With a bran new suit of clothes,
That was made by " Johnny Dockerty,"
Who everybody knows;
"Muldoon, the Solid Man," was there,
As dacent as could be.
But there wasn't one in all the lot
Could stand aside o' me. .

Spoken-I was there, and there wasn't one, for months after
that you'd hear them talking of the sights they had seen, bu
you'a be sure to hear them exclaim-

Did you see John Malone,
With his shining bran new hat?
Did you see him marching off,
Like a gay aristocrat?
There was flags and banners waving high,
And dress, in style, was shown;
But the greatest swell in all the lot
Was Mr. John Malone.

The Mayor upon the town hall steps
Quite stately took his stand,
He noticed none till I came by,
And then he waved his hand;
He saw at once the style was there,
For he stared with both his eyes,
As if he thought I was some lord
Or duke dressed in disguise.
We marched all through the city,
Till I thought we'd never stop,
Bo I fell out into Mugee's
To take a drop;
The people they were talking
Of the sights thev saw that day.
And I felt a little flattered
When I heard the people say- Chorus.

I received an invitation
To attend a fancy ball,
But without an evening suit of clothes
I could not go at all;
Mr. Dockerty, the tailor,
My measure could not take.
Because for Mr. Murphy

He'd got a suit to make.
I went to Shudehill market,
Bought a new suit, second hand,
And with a flower stuck in my coat,
I looked a trifle grand;
We danced till after midnight,
When we went home in the dark,
Tou could scarcely walk a yard
But you'd hear some one remark-Chorus.
