I saw Put Murphy yesterday,
He looked an awful sight.
His legs and arms were up in splints.
His head was bandaged tight;
In fact you only saw his eyes,
And they were mighty small-
Maguire and he had had a scrap
At Brady's Union Hall.
"Hello! old man, " says I to him,
"Hello! yourself, " says he,
I've had a little "picnic, " Mike,
As you, no doubt, can see,
Maguire and I we had a row
About my diamond stud.
And when the thing was over, why,
Maguire's name was mud.

I may look like a cripple
And feel like one, I know,
I may look like McGinty's ghost.
Or like some funeral show;
I've not been in a railroad wreck,
I've not been in a fire;
If I look bad and broken up,
Just wait and see Maguire.

And did you both use clubs, says I,
Use clubs, says Pat, not much.
There's not a thing in "Union Hall"
That we forgot to touch;
It started in a quiet way
While we were drinking wine-
Miss Kelly thought the stud I wore
Was very, very fine.
I quite forgot what happened then,
Or how it came to pass,
I only know Maguire remarked
The stone was made of glass,
"You lie, " says I, "I what. " says he,
"I'll make you take that back."
And when the thing was over, why,
He went home in a hack.-Chorus,

At first we had it right and left,
And then we took up chairs,
We had it till around the hall,
And then we went up stairs;
Maguire then grabbed a table leg,
I took a chandelier
And broke the globes upon his head,
While he bit off my ear;
The mem'ry of that night of bliss
I never shall forget,
The grudge I have against Maguire
Has not been settled yet,
Maguire must still square up with me
For what the racket cost,
For when the thing was over, why.
My diamond stud was lost.-Chorus.
