To Show My Respects to McGinnis.
Written by J. F. Mitchell.

The other fright I stepped into the Shamrock Hotel,
Just to pay my respects to McGinnis;
For as I was passing I though! it as well
To pay my respects to McGinnis.
There was two or three fellows stood just round toe bar.
And as soon as I entered I said there yes are.
Let ye all take a drink and a ten cent cigar,
Just to show your respects to McGinnis.

Then we all paid for drinks in turn-
McGinnis done the same-
As fast as we could order them.
Around the drinks they came.
Murphy he was paralyzed,
O'Brien he couldn't see.
Well, I was drunk, but Flanagan
Was a great sight worse than me.

O'Brien then said, let us he jolly to-night.
Just to show our respects to Mr Ginnis-
McCarthy then swore that he must have a tight.
Just to show our respects to McGinnis.
Then Murphy swore, and these words be did say,
Now gentlemen, let ye he aisy, I pray.
And enjoy yerself in a clane dacent way.
Just to show your respects to McGinnis.-Chorus.

Then Sullivan began for to sing a nice song.
Just to show his respects to McGinnis,
And as he was getting just nice and quiet along,
When O'Brien he clouted McGinnis.
We all got a'fighting, we slugged left and right,
And Flanagans breath it pot out the light,
Big Murphy, the cop. locked us all up that night,
And we all got a cursing McGinnis. - Chorus,
