Drinking With Daniel Maloney.
Copyright, 1884, by Wm. J. McVey.
Sung by George Wilson with tremendous success.
You've heard of Dan Maloney,
He's known both far and near;
He's ready to assist a friend
With heart and hand sincere.
And though he's not a toper,
He's ever light and gay;
When drinking with some old-time friends,
You'll hear Maloney say:
Here's to ye, boys, good luck and long life,
Here's to ye Charles and Owney,
Have the best on the bar, aither wine or cigar,
When drinking with Daniel Maloney.
He's not inclined to Cliquot,
Or champagne, extra dry.
But like the solid man he is,
He sticks to good old rye;
He'll pass a joke or sing a song
All night till break of day.
And when the parting glass is filled,
You'll hear Maloney say:-Chorus.
His heart and pocket's open
To assist a fellow man;
No matter where you go you'll hear
A word in praise of Dan;
He's upright and he's honest,
With a conscience clear as day,
In rain or shine where'er he's met,
Right heartily he'll say.-Chorus.
