Tim Dooly he got married Tuesday night,
And to wish him joy they came from far and near,
Singing songs and feeling frisky, telling stories, drinking whiskey.
If you'll listen now, I'll tell you who were there:
Jerry Clancy looked quite fancy with Miss Nolan's daughter Nancy;
As they entered, sure, you'd think they owned the floor;
Molly Noolan sat there fooling, telling jokes and ridiculing
Everybody as they entered through the door.
Tommy Ryan sat there, trying to keep Molly Shay from crying,
As he kissed her and he called her "Angel fair;"
But the ones that took the prize and dazzled everybody's eyes
Were Maggie Farrell and your humble servant here.
They sang and danced and drank till broad daylight,
And they wished them lots of luck, the groom and bride;
You could see a funny feeling towards the morning o'er them stealing,
As they toddled home together side by side.- Chorus.
