Composed by Dave Rinaldo.
Parody on "Since Barney O'Rafferty Gave Me the Sack."

My name is O'Grady, a swell and a masher,
Admired by all the young ladies I meet;
I'm always in fashion, they call me a dasher.
For my name is O'Grady, the swell of the street;
You can bet with my make-up I set them all crazy.
With a cane in my hand, they say don't he look sweet.
In the hearts; of the. ladies I'm known as a daisy,
My name is O'Grady, the swell of the street.

Very often I'm seen strolling down by the seashore,
The ladies all smile and say don't he look neat;
I wear stylish clothes, I'm a dude and a la-la,
They call me O'Grady, the swell of the street.

I act very fine when I'm out in society,
For I'm not a common swell you always meet,
I never get tight, I'm the leader of sobriety,
I'm known as O'Grady, the swell of the street.
I'm known on the race track, the people all eye me,
I always get tips and the horses I beat;
I'm an all around sport and the pet of the ladies,
O'Grady's my name, I'm the swell of the street.

There's a girl over there, and she's looking right at me,
I know that she loves me, for I am so sweet.
She's stuck on my shape, I'm my mama's own baby.
My name is O'Grady, the swell of the street.
