KITTY CORDELIA MULDOON
Copyright. 1894, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by John H. Wagner.

'Twas a swate little colleen from far Tipperary,
Her name it was Kitty Cordelia Muldoon;
She'd an ankle so neat and a step like a fairy;
One glance from her eye captivated me soon.
Ere long my affection she gained so completely
That at courting I'd spend the best part of the day,
Till she'd gaze in my eyes and would smile, oh, so sweetly,
Then, roguishly pouting, she'd tenderly say:

Chorus.
"Arrah. won't you be aisy now, Mister O'Rafferty?
Surely you know your behavior is wrong:
You're drivin' me crazy now, Mister O'Rafferty,
Teasin' me, squeezin' me all the day long."

"Oh, but Mistress Muldoon, 'tis for life I would court ye;
I've acres of land and five pigs and a cow;
Sure, with wealth such as that I can right well support ye;
So say, Kitty, darling, ye'll marry me now."
She blushed rosy red as she gave me her answer,
Her little heart flutter'd with joy and with fear;
But when, just to take one sweet kiss, I began, sir,
She bashfully murmured so soft in my ear:

Chorus.
"Arrah, won't you be aisy now, Mister O'Rafferty?
Surely you know your behavior is wrong:
You're drivin' me crazy now, Mister O'Rafferty,
Teasin' me, equeezin' me all the day long."

But now that we're married, faith ev'rything's altered;
I ne'er dreamt a woman could prove such a "sell" ;
Sure, the tongne that once lisp'd and so bashfully falter'd
Now clangs like the clapper that hangs from a bell.
I thought her an angel, she turned out a divil;
She breaks all the crockery over my head,
And no matter how hard I may try to be civil,
Sure, often I think I had better be dead.

Chorus.
I'd have you be aisy now, Mister O'Rafferty;
Just as Is usual, you're in the wrong;
Yon'll drive your wife crazy now, Mister O'Rafferty,
Thus aggravatin' her all the day long.
