Words by Edward Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

The Spuyten Duyvel to the river working all day long,
We are handy with the shovel and you'll hear them clang,
Dinging up the diamonds while we sing a jolly song.
For we're known by all the boys as Callahan's Gang.

Hard coal, soft coal, charcoal and coke,
We dump it in the carts before they make it smoke;
Lehigh, Delaware and the Lackawang,
We're known by all the boys as Callahan's Gang.

When our labor's over then we hurry home to tea,
After washing and a-combing out a great big bang.
The ladies do be giggling, oh! and this is what they say:
"Ye are known by all the girls as Callahan's Gang." - Chorus.

Standing on the corner by McSwiggin's big saloon,
On politics we argue wid a great harangue:
The copper on the corner says, "Oh, give the people room;
You're a noisy lot of boys, ye Callahan's Gang." - Chorus.
