 Words by Ed. E. Pidgeon. Music by M. H. Rosenfeld,

I'm a meek and quiet man, but I'd have you understan'
That sometimes, sure, I'm driven to the wall;
Tis hard to get me riled, for me temper's very mild,
And a little joke I never mind at all.
But one day it came my turn, and I'd have ye all to learn,
That here's the reason why I can't get bail:
Sure, last night a man I killed, and his hide with bullets filled,
And this is why they landed me in jail

You ought ter seen me lick him. and stick him, and kick him,
You ought ter seen me grab him, and stab him to the floor;
I'll stand a joke of any kind, no matter what it be,
But I'll paralyze the man that says McGinty.

T'other day in Jordan's place, where I often wet my face,
We were having just a little social smile,
When McNulty he dropped 'round, and says he to me he's found,
While the rogue he meant McGinty all the while.
But I asked him who he meant, before outside he went.
Then he poked me in the ribs and said, says he:
Why, McGinty, you old jay! but before he "went away,
I kicked him where his bustle ought to be.-Chorus.

Now when I come from work, just as tired as a Turk,
I like to have me little mite o' rest;
And I'm as quiet as a mouse in my nate and dacent house,
And always have a welcome for each guest.
But last night at wan o'clock, sure, I heard a rousin' knock,
And a neighbor met me at the door, says he:
We want to raise the price for to put him on the ice!
Who's that? says I. Says he, why, Dan McGinty.-Chorus.
