American Old Time Song Lyrics: 18 My Daughter, Rachael
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 18
MY DAUGHTER, RACHAEL.
Tune- "My Daughter, Julia."
I have a daughter named Rachael,
She has nearly broke my gaul,
She goes on the stage singing Highland flings,
Down in Actors' Hall.
She dances a clog on a motzer,
As an actress she is all the rage:
Shcsung the Sweet Bye-and-Bye last Fourth of July,
When Kachael came out on the stage.
She waltzes around upon her ear,
She dances the ballet on a schooner of beef;
Waltzing around with Rachael,
She looks like an Irish page;
She stands on her toes and sings through her nose,
When Rachael leaps out on the stage.
Her photograph, twelve for a quarter.
Of the Queen of Ireland christening Jews,
She went to Australia for a million a week,
To support Edwin Boots or Shoes.
She can walk to Scotland on a wire,
She sleeps in an iron cage;
They throw iron medals and wooden cheese.
When Rachael leaps out on the stage.-Chorus.
