Words and Music by Maud Evelyn Moulton.

Jim Ryan thought he'd give a ball and he'd invite folks one and all,
The fat, the lean, the short, the tall, and have a jolly time;
He sent out Invitations and Brady's Band he hired;
He ordered up the best of food, you bet it was admired;
And when the band began to play the music was entrancin'.
The fellows got their partners fair an' 'round the room went dancin'.

O the sportin' O the courtin',
O the merry dancin' in the hall.
Shure never a fight they had, an' ev'ry one was glad.
They never will forget Jim Ryan's ball.

The ladies were in great demand, Tom Casey kissed Miss Biddy's hand.
He called her fairest in the land; Miss Biddy's hair was red;
They gave an entertainment, Kate Larry sang a song.
Joe Murphy danced a break-down, then Lizzie White came 'long.
She gave a recitation about dear old Erin's shore.
Such clappin' hands an' cheerin' shure ye never heard before.-Chorus.
