BIRTHDAY PARTY
Copyright, 1894, by Frank Hording.
Words by Chas. F. Curtis. Music by Chas. H. Patterson.

It was at the birthday party of little Kate McCarthy,
The children in the Neighborhood assembled in her rooms:
There was Mamie Moriarty, her beau, they called him Shorty;
They formed a ring and began to sing some very pretty tunes.

Chorus.
London bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down,
London bridge is falling down, so fair, my lady, oh!
Little Maggie Murphy, she sang so loud and hearty,
Down at James McCarthy's house, at Kitty's birthday party.

They had ice cream and liver, which fairly made them shiver,
They stuffed themselves with peanut shells and other funny games;
Then little Kate McGinnis, she tried to play lawn tennis.
She called her sister Mary Ann some very naughty names.

 When the farmer sows his seed, thus he stands and takes his ease,
Stamps his foot, clasps his hand, turns around to view the land,
Little Maggie Murphy, she sang so loud and hearty,
Down at James McCarthy's house, at Katy's birthday party.

Pat Fagan's cousin Mary, the darling little fairy,
On Sheehan's Dutch accordion she played as fine as silk;
And then young Mickey Riddle played on the Chinese fiddle,
Until the milkman came around to peddle out the milk.

Chorus.
Mamie Mack, dressed in black, silver buttons down her back;
I love coffee, I love tea, I love the boys and the boys love me.
Little Maggie Murphy, she sang so loud and hearty,
Down at James McCarthy's house, at Katy's birthday party.
