Words and Music by William Gilligan.

My name it is O'Callahan,
I've descended from a nobleman;
Just gaze on me and you will see
What I'll do when America's free:
I will make the landlords stand around.
For I'll pull their shanties to the ground,
And I'll build French flats both safe and sound.
For I'm a cousin to Parnell!

Look out for me upon land or at sea,
For I'll turn the whole universe upside down,
And I'll rule the world and wear a crown,
For I'm a cousin to Parnell!-(Dance).

I'll have a navy built of tin,
I'll go down and scoop the Zulus in;
I'll renovate the City Hall,
Learn the Turks to play baseball.
I will capture all the kings and queens,
And they'll not escape by any means,
For I'll feed them all on pork and beans,
For I'm a cousin to Parnell:-Chorus.

I'll give the lion's tail a twist,
And I'll smash the White House with my fist;
Electric lights will have to go,
When I start to run the show.
There will be no pension agencies,
For I'll turn the rascals out to freeze,
Then I'll help the poor man take his ease,
For I'm a cousin to Parnell!
