Danny Takes After His Father.
Words by Ed. Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

I've a very large family at home,
Meself and the old woman, two,
Four girls and five little boys;
I have plenty of labor to do
To advise and instruct them in study.
And walk by the square rule of three;
They all take after their mother.
But Danny he takes after me.

He's as proud as a soger on parade.
Or a blackbird that sings from a tree;
He's the image, they say, of his father-
For Danny he takes after me.

Rudolpho takes after his mother,
Elvina And Rosy likewise.
And just like a goat in the parlor,
They'd butt if they didn't get pies.
When Edwardo sits down to his dinner.
With the sugar he makes himself free;
Dan hits him a puck in the jugular
For Danny he takes after me.-Chorus.

He's an eye in his head like an eagle.
He resembles the great Bull-vi-dere;
And just like the Empress of Chiny,
His foot's just as small as his ear;
His voice it resembles the cuckoo.
Or the mermaid that swims in the sea;
He's a darling, I'm tould. 'mong the ladies-
For Danny he takes after me.-Chorus.
