American Old Time Song Lyrics: 21 Madam Duvan
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 21
As sung by Put Rooney.
I have a daughter, her name is O'Holahan,
She comes out on the stage and she dances the can-can;
She can stand for three weeks on the top of her tippy toes,
And how she does it the Lord only known;
She skips around like a jumping jack.
Some day or other she'll break her back.
On the bills she is Madam Duvan,
And at home she is O'Holahan,
I Is my daughter, Biddy, she is so pretty,
And they say she is just like her pa.
I took my old lady to see the performance.
But my dauchter'she kicked up so high in the clog dance,
The old lady got scared and commenced for to cry: "hi! hi!
Look out, Biddy, there, you'll kick a hole in the sky;"
For she leaps around like a jumping jack.
For she fell last week on the broad of her back.-Chorus.
