American Old Time Song Lyrics: 17 I'm All Broke Up To Day
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 17
I'M ALL BROKE UP TO-DAY.
Copyright, 1880, by E. H. Harding.
I live in Brooklyn on the Heights,
I often cross the ferry,
To Catherine street, where I usually meet.
My second cousin Jerry.
It was last night I got so tight,
The divil a penny to pay,
At Maloney's bar we'd beer And cigarsI'm all broke up to-day.
I am not intoxicated,
But slightly elevated,
With joy I'm overheated,
I'm all broke up to-day.
From Maloney's we went to Casey's,
It was after twelve o'clock,
We eat hot clams and fries of lambs,
Three barrels of saddle rocks.
Men from Tyrone and sweet Athlone,
Across the Atlantic say,
Had arguments, of consequenceI'm all broke up to-day.-Chorus.
I had an altercation
With Maloney's brother, Jack;
We wrestled 'round the barrels,
I put him on hjs back;
Then all Maloney's family
They put me on a dray,
And took me to a calabooseI'm all broke up to-day.-Chorus.
I have formed a resolution,
The pledge I'm going to sign,
Drink ginger ale and double X pale,
And French Canandaigua wine.
I'll sober up and shake the cup,
Drink nothing but coffee and day,
I'll soak my head and go to bed
