American Old Time Song Lyrics: 15 Mrs Higgins Parlor Floor
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 15
MRS. HIGGINS' PARLOR FLOOR.
Copyright, 1886, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Mrs. Higgins lives 'round these quarters,
In a house that was built by her son;
She has three elegant daughters,
In society considered bon-ton.
Every night in the week there's a party,
Such waltzing and dancing on toes;
I'm told by Miss Biddy McCarthy
That the entire neighborhood knows
Mary, Nell and Rose have on their Sunday clothes,
To entertain their lovers by the score;
Then the dancing will begin, with Tom, Jack and Jim,
They'll soon break down Miss Higgins' parlor floor.
Miss Mary she works at dressmaking,
Rosie clerks in a store on Broadway;
And Nellie's fine at roller skating,
She won the first prize here to-day.
Mary has her left eye on Tom Kelly,
Jack Nolan's in love with Miss Rose;
And Jimmies the bright boy for Nellie,
With a beautiful wart on her nose. - Chorus.
