Words and Music by Joseph P. Galton.

There's going to be a reception to-night, down at Michael Casey's hall;
'Twill be the event of east-side society, the annual Bowery ball;
Oh, all the fellows and girls in the gaug for certain will be there;
And all the swells of Fifth Avenue at our costumes and style will stare.

Yes, we'll all be there at the Bowery ball,
No such high-toned affair e'er was held in Casey's hall;
The French Masquerade, so famous and gay, won't be in the game at all
With the sights that you'll see between 12 and 3 to-night at the Bowery ball.

You'll find the music will be right in tune, the selections will be fine;
There'll be living pictures upon the stage, to begin at half-past nine;
Then May McNulty will rise from the sea, its Venus, so sweet and fair:
Her dress will consist of a beautiful smile, und-a silver comb in her hair.- Cho.

At twelve comes supper, with plenty of beer, and then dancing till half-past 4;
After which there'll be a delightful big scrap, when the whole gang takes the floor
And Jimmy Hagan, the Bowery boy, will meet little Dan Mccall;
There'll be music and lights and plenty of fights to-night at the Bowery ball.-Cho.
