MR BARNEY FLYNN.
Copyright, 1888, by M. Witmark & Sons.
I received an invitation from Mister Barney Flynn,
A man of reputation, who keeps a cosy inn,
To enjoy myself with Barney upon his wedding-day,
And if you list I'll tell to you how we passed the time away.
For Reilly was under the table, Murphy was on the floor,
And Barney got into bed along with a dozen more;
His wife was under the bedstead along with a rolling pin,
For she couldn't stand the blarney of Mister Barney Flynn.
When at the house we did arrive, Barney said to me,
Now if you want to stay all night sure, welcome you will be;
The band got up, the music played, which got us in a fix.
And very soon out went the lights, sure, we one and all got mixed.-Chorus.
