Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 44
I'LL HOODOO OHARA.
Copyright, 1894, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Edgar Selden.
Have you seen O'Hara? just from Connemara,
Doolihan O'Hara is his name.
Shurc he's stole my Nora, och, I did adore her;
Isn't it a flim-flam game?
Off they skipped so nately, cleaned me out completely.
This the note she left behind:
"Whist now, Put, be aisy. O'Hara is me daisy,
I've quit ye, for me love was blind."
I'll hoodoo O'Hara, If I lay me fists on him,
I'll give him "Um ta-ra-ra," 'till 'he bones stick through his skin,
He's a bandy-legged snoozer. he's a rowdy dowdy boozer,
But I'll hoodoo you, O'Hara, yis, be jabers.
Whin on shore he landed, met him open-handed,
Showed him all around the town, av coorse.
Took him to the station, passed examination,
Got him on the police force;
Brought him home to dinner, the desateful sinner,
Introduced me wife wid glee,
Thin I went for whiskey, I came back feeling friskey,
And found her on O'Hara's knee. - Chorus.
