McGARRY'S NEW WHITE HAT.
Copyright, 1893, by Frank Harding.
Words and Music by Acton E. Kelly.
There's a great commotion In our street, the excitement is intense,
McGarry's got a new white hat, And, begorra, it's Immense;
The neighbors talk of nothing else-no more of this or that,
From morn 'till night it's have you seen ('What?) McGarry's new white hat.
McGarry's new while hat, McGarry's new white dicer.
It's a corker it's a beauty-you never saw a nicer;
It's a daisy little plug; sure, every one sees that;
It's the dandy of all stove-pipes, boys, (*What?) McGarry's new white hat.
Mrs. Reilly drops the wash-board quick, Mrs. Gogan drops the child,
McSorley drops the pick and stares, the boys and girls grow wild,
The dudes almost drop off the earth, and Dan and Mike And Pat
Drop work at once when they behold (*What?) McGarry's new white hat. - Cho.
The little widow Nolan, too, of husbands she's had four,
Lived with her cat a quiet life, she vowed she'd have no more;
But now she says she'll try again; she's bounced the ould Tom cat;
He's camping out since first she saw McGarry's new white hat.- Cho.
