McCarthy's Boarding House.
Copyright, 1876, by Thomas E. Powers.

Denny McCarthy lives in Cherry street,
McCarthy's boarding house;
He keeps a boarding bouse, clean and neat,
McCarthy's boarding house.
Five dollars a week to him we pay,
McCarthy's boarding house,
We get three square meals every day
In McCarthy's boarding house.

There's the Clearys and Learys,
McLinns and Flynns,
Denny Regan, and Fagin
In McCarthy's boarding house. (Repeat.)

I tell you. boys, they feed us high
In McCarthy's boarding house;
On lobster salad and lemon pie,
In McCarthy's boarding house.
Quail on toast, eggs and ham-
McCarthy's boarding house-
Corned beef and cabbage, and Italian jam,
McCarthy's boarding house.

There is cobblers and nailers,
Tailors and weavers,
Tiny butchers and bakers
In McCarthy's boarding house. (Repeat.)

McCarthy bought a new piano
For McCarthy's boarding house;
For his elegant daughter, big Johanna,
In McCarthy's boarding house.
And she's the girl knows how to play
In McCarthy's boarding house;
She'd drive your appetite away,
In McCarthy's boarding house.

Johanna, Alanna,
Loves Nailor, the tailor;
And faith, they'll be married
In McCarthy's boarding house. (Repeat.)
