Say! Have You Seen O'Houlihan?
Copyright, 1890, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by H. J. Campbell. Music by E. J. Nealon.

I met O'Houlihan last week while going down to work,
He's quite a sport around the town they say;
"Come play the horses, Mike. " says he "I've got a dead sure tip!
I'm going to take the races in to-day!"
I gave him fifty dollars, ' put it on Spokane "says I;
He took it and the horse he won the race;
That's yesterday a week ago, but I've not seen a cent,
I want to meet the villain face to face.

Say! have you seen O'Houlihan? Bedad. there'll be some fun?
His mother will never believe, I'll bet. that he's her son;
O'Houlihan won't know his name if I meet him to-day,
There'll be a wake and funeral if ever he comes my way.

And yesterday O'Houlihan walks boldly to the house,
And tells my wife I sent him for my coat;
She goes no to the wardrobe, gets I he best one that I had,
For which I paid a fifty dollar note!
He took the coat and pawn'd it, then the ticket sent to me.
To get it twenty dollars I did pay;
The greatest rogue that's living, is this man O'Houlihan.
I'll change his name to "Mister Mud" to-day.- Refrain.

I never found out till this morn, that, in the coat he stole.
I had a hundred dollars in a bunch;
And when I got the coat from pawn, I found a little note
That read: "I took the boodle for my lunch!"
O'Houlihan may think he's smart, and very much alive.
But I'll get square or know the reason why;
I've bought a good revolver, that will shoot a thousand feet,
'Tis mournful-but the villain's got to die. Refrain.
