Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 45
FANNY O'DONAVAN'S DANCE.
Copyright, 1894, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Jos. Flynn.
You may bring about London and gay Paree,
And the four hundred here in town,
But they're not in the swim, take a tip from me,
When the solid old fan is around;
For down In a hall, back of old Battle AlleyDon't miss it if you get a chance-
There is spelling, and reeling, and steps from the ballet,
At Fanny O'Donavan's dance.
Waltzing around, while the music is playing,
Dreamily gliding, you feel in it trance;
For genuine spolt, well, it does without saying,
You'll find it at Funny O'Donavan's dance.
All the girls club together and hire the hall,
Then a dime you give up to go In,
And you don't have to fly any frills at all-
Just pick our your girl for a spin.
The charity ball don't begin to come near it,
If you want a happy old time,
Tho' no millionaire's daughters are there, don't fear It,
The girls that do go are sublime.- Chorus.
