CHARLES PATRICK O'BRIEN.
Copyright, 1882, by Frank Harding.
Words and Music by Will H. Fox.
Behold in me an Irish swell that's known both far and near;
I am recognized by all the girls as an Apollo Belvidere;
At any party or ball, you bet, I'm right in line;
They always seek the company of Charles Patrick O'Brien.
I am an Irish swell, no doubt that you all can tell;
I never act rude, I'm no tough or dude,
On Fort Green I do dwell;
I'm always in for a good time, I like singing and dancing sublime,
The girls have gone crazy, they call me their daisy,
And dote on Charles Patrick O'Brien.
I go to Europe every week, I've nothing but money and lands.
I receive a thousand letters a day from ladies who offer their hands;
Ward McAllister sinks in the shade, for the Four Hundred I've no time,
Although they sought the membership of Charles Patrick O'Brien.-Chorus.
