Words and Music by W. A. Brockway.
The boys and girls all gather in each night on Hogan's flat,
There's Bridget Moriarity, sure, and Harney's Duffy Pat;
Selphina And McGilligan, Bermudas Faggan, too;
Berdelia Jane O'Sullivan. Pat Hogan, And McClue;
With Sophie Ann and Biddy Guff and Constantine McGruff.
Along with Patsy Conners, and Miss Constantine McGuff,
There's quiet for a minute, and you'll hear old Hogan shout:
We'll adjourn for fifteen minutes, while we push the growler out.
Then, Paddy, are you waitin' now? just take the cash and fly,
And get over to the Dutchman's in the twinkling of an eye;
Oh, don't you bring it frothy now. but mind what you're- about!,
And bring all red to Hogan's when we push the growler out.
The growler passes merrily around the joyous ring
Till Bridget Moriarity, sure, is called upon to sing;
She rises And commences, "When the robins nest again,"
While Biddy Moriarity, sure, is courting with MeShane.
Then we play "Drop the handkerchief," "How many in the well?
The growler keeps agoin', where the Dutchman's beer does sell.
Till some of them gets boist'rous, and O'Regan gets a clout.
We fight, shake hands, and meet next night to push the growler out.- Chorus
