A Recitation by Jas. O'Neil.

O'Reilly owned a billy goat,
And a great buck goat was he;
He would buck almost anything
That he'd happen for to see.
And if at night he'd roam the streets,
And a drunken man he'd meet,
He'd buck him till he was sick and tired.
And then his clothes he'd cat­O'Reilly's billy goat.

He knew every policeman on the beat.
And he knew if him they found,
That he'd spend a short vacation
Down here in the city pound.
He ate Mrs. Mulligan's underclothes
That were hanging on the line;
Shure he bucked a Dutchman in the belly,
And knocked him out of time­O'Reilly's billy goat.

But every goat must have his day,
And this goat's day did come-
He met a butcher's clog one day,
And the dog for him did run;
He chased the goat through the streets,
Shure the dog for him was too smart,
He chased him till he lost his wind,
And he died of a broken heart­O'Reilly's billy goat.

Now down here in a vacant lot,
In a corner quite alone.
There we buried O'Reilly's billy goat.
And over him raised a stone;
And perchance you'd pass that way.
You'll find these words on it are wrote:
Sacred to the memory of
O'Reilly's great buck goat.
