It was on a Saturday night
That we started a company,
And elected Anthony Wright,
Our captain for to be.
He accepted office with thanks.
And appointed us Pioneers,
For to march in front of the ranks.
In the Hoolahan Musketeers!

We march'd like soldiers thro' the streets.
With our new flags flying so gay,
And bate the time wid both our feet.
While the band did sweetly play.
From windows high the girls aid look.
And they smil'd at the Pioneers,
And then their handkerchiefs they shook
At the Hoolahan Musketeers.

To the guests invited we gave
All the prizes to carry round,
And at nine o'clock we did l'ave,
For to go to the shooting ground,
Where we stopp'd for two hours or more.
And we toasted the Pioneers,
Had eating and drinking galore,
Did the Hoolahan Musketeers!-Chorus.

But when we got back to the ward,
It was then we felt light and gay,
And our captain flourish'd his sword,
While the crowd did l'ave the way.
At Monahan's we broke up then,
And faith, we gave three hearty cheers.
For the officers and t he men,
In the Hoolahau Musketeers!-Chorus.
