Written and Composed by Chas. Hoey,
and Sung by Hoey & Daly,

Wherever you go on the street nowadays.
You'll hear this expression, sure, Mike!
Each man And each woman, and child when he plays,
All know this new by-word, sure, Mike!
If you ask your best girl will she go to a ball.
Or on a nice evening, to go for a stroll;
Just ask an old "rounder "will he take a ball;
He'll answer you quickly, sure, Mike!

Positive, Michael is always around.
Wherever you look he is sure to be found;
Just go to a hop or a picnic at night.
You're bound for to hear this new saying-sure, Mike!

I've been courting a damsel for nigh on two years;
I love her, I do; sure, Mike!
I proposed to her, and she burst into tears;
She grabbed me And answered, sure, Mike!
To hear such good news she had waited so long.
She said, "Ask my pa can I go right long."
I asked, and he kicked me And said, "You begone!"
And I plaintively answered, sure, Mike! -Chorus.

Since this phrase has come out I am nearly insane;
At night in my dreams I see Mike;
Whenever I hear it, I'm always in pain;
To use such a name isn't right.
Poor Mike-how he suffers there's no one can tell;
I'd end all his misery if I knew where he dwelt;
I'd poison this fellow, and send him to h---
And then put an end to sure, Mike!- Chorus.
