Words by Charles Graham. Music by Wm. D. H. Hall.

You've all heard of me, I'm McGinty, the copper,
The model Adonis in blue
My standing is high, and my character proper,
Although I've nothing to do.
Political Influence got me appointed-
I worked in my district for Councilman Shea;
When Shea was elected, McKay was rejected.
And Shea made a copper of me.

Life for me is always gay, whether it rain or shine
A stormy day I pass away at the bar of a friend of mine.
When it's fair, I walk the Square on the shady side;
For the fashion I've a passion, McGinty, the ladies' pride.

At every reception that ever was given
To men of renown in the town.
From the President down to the small politician,
As watchman I'm always around;
When people approach me to suck information,
I answer in language that's classic and grand;
I've got a big pull, for I never get full.
And that's why I'm in such demand. Chorus.

I'm always on hand to assist the dear ladies,
My gallantry owes me much praise;
I frequently talk with the nurse and their babies
To while away long summer days.
A friend I have proven to all sorts of people
A jerk of my arm stops a runaway horse;
When I am in sight, there is never a riot.
For I am the king of the force,--Chorus.

When out on review. I conduct the procession -
My style is a thing all admire;
I'm fond of my work, and I love my profession,
But soon I am going to retire,
Then I'll get an office, a paying position,
And out in my carriage with coachman I'll ride-
A blue-blood I'll be. with a fine pedigree,
And in a big house I'll reside. Chorus.
