Have You Seen Dan McKenna?
Copyright, 1891, by Spaulding A Kornder.
Words by Conroy & Fox. Music by Harry S. Miller.

Dan McKenna was a friend of mine, 'till here the other day,
I never can forget the trick the wily rogue did play;
He got a friend and I to stop our work along the docks, did he;
To go and play the races, sure, he'd tickets enough for three.
We gave him all our money for to play a race for us.
At plunging we were new upon the ground;
And, bedad, the horse it won that he had the money on.
Now McKenna or our money can't be found.

Have you seen Dan McKenna around about this way?
Have you seen Dan McKenna at any time to-day?
.Oh, I don't mean to insinuate or any thing like that,
If his family has any respect for him, they'll soon be wearing black.

Now McKenna wasn't satisfied with what he went and done,
For when he left the races with our money that he'd won.
Didn't he go and tell our little wives we'd both fell off the dock,
And send a suit of clothes for each, he'd carry them to the spot.
But when we both got home and heard McKenna had been there,
And took our Sunday clothes, where, no one knows,
And our wives believed in Mac, thought he'd done a noble act,
And to keep from catching cold they sent our clothes.

have you seen Dan McKenna around about this way?
Have you seen Dau McKenna at any time to-day?
Oh, I only want to meet him for a little while or more,
If your 'round this way in the morning, look for crape upon the door.

Now then when we heard the story from our little wives so true.
It made us mad enough to go and cut the rogue in two;
Arrah! we never thought a friend of ours would do the likes of that,
We couldn't hardly believe it, sure, the villainy of Mac;
My rent that day was due, and it was in my Sunday pants,
Bedad, it's gone along with all the rest;
And my watch I had, so fine, that I bought from Dan O'Brien,
It is missing with my Sunday silken vest.

Have you seen Dan McKenna around about this way?
Have you seen Dan McKenna at any time to-day?
Oh, I won't go into details now, but When we meet the cuss,
If there isn't a wake in his street, 'twill be a f unny thing to us.
