McNALLY'S OLD BACK YARD.
Copyright. MDCCCXCV. by Henry J. Wehman.
Words by Charles Edwards. Music by Geo. C. Edwards.
Right across the Brooklyn Bridge, on the east side of the town,
Little Joe, he will meet his beau, and he takes her by the arm,
On their way they meet Nell And May, along with Julie Worth,
And every night you'll find them in McNally's old back yard.
Sweet, little Annie O'Connor, along with Tommie McCue,
Making love together, as the boys and girls all do,
And beautiful Nancy Clancy, the is the belle of the ward,
And every night you'll find them all in McNally's old back yard.
Summer's night, when the moon shines bright, the man in the moon sees all;
Johnnie Dean plays the concertina, Nellie Grady sings a song,
Mollie McGuire, who sings in the choir, along with Annie Hart,
And every night you'll find them in McNally's old back yard.- Chorus.
