The Christening of Maggie's Baby.
Copyright, 1893, by Spaulding & Kornder.
 Words and Music by Lew a. Carroll.

Just three years ago pretty Maggie Maguire
Was married to Michael McGee;
They have a sweet baby the neighbors admire,
As cute as the cutest Could be;
The night that they christened the dear little lad,
The parents with happiness smiled;
They welcomed their friends as they entered the cottage,
And sang to the health of the child.

Baby, you're your papa's joy, and you are your mamma's darling,
Sweet as a rose, with a nice little nose, we hug and caress you,
With kisses we bless you, so rock-a-by baby that's on the tree-top,
Turil-luril la by, with joy and delight we were singing all night,
At the Christening of Maggie's baby.

Before Maggie wed she was greatly admired
By every young lad In the place;
Her ways were so modest, her voice sweet and gentle,
The picture of health was her face;
The boys who had many times asked for her hand
Were present, and pleasantly smiled;
They wished both the mother and father good fortune,
And sang to the dear little child.- Chorus.
