Words by Charles Edwards. Music by George Ok Edwards.

Oh! Riley was an alderman, and soon was to be wed:
The buys they played a joke on him, which nearly killed him dead;
So in the morning' papers, Riley read the news next day,
His would-be bride, his joy and pride, from him had tun away.

Oh, he married Riley's bride, and at Riley the gang, all cried:
Sweet Kate O'Flynn, so tall and thin, away from him did slide;
And all the live-long day, at him the gang they all would say,
That Limpey Dan O'Hoolehan had married Riley's bride.

Now Kate O'Flynn, who promised him, just heard the news that night;
She heard the gang, they loudly sang, and mad enough to fight,
So he ran to tell the alderman that there was something wrong,
And as she ran along the street, the kids did loudly call:- Chorus.

When Kate went in, her arms she flung around poor Riley's neck:
She said the cries, they all were lies, their lone lives tried to wreck,
So there and then, like noble Den, we'll have a little cot;
Send for the man, and us we stand, be married on the spot.-Chorus.
