The Gintleman From Kildare.
Copyright, 1879, by E. H. Harding.
Words and Music by J. P, Skelly.

Six months ago I landed here, for pleasure I kem over,
I've travelled all the continent, in fact, I'm quite a rover;
They put me among the emigrants, ten days they left me there,
With indignity they treated me, a gintleman from Kildare.

I'm a gintleman from Kildare,
And my name is Dennis O'Hare;
I'm a swell of the day, and I dress very gay,
I'm a gintleman from Kildare.

When up Broadway I gently strolled to view the glorious city,
A stranger took me by the arm and laughed and joked so witty;
He took me in and called for wine, of course I did not care,
But he ran away with the watch and chain of the gintleman from Kildare.-Cho

To Coney Isle I often go to have a day of pleasure,
The girls on me their smiles bestow, they think me quite a treasure;
I carry a cane and twirl it 'round with a gay and jaunty air.
And they all admire the faultless attire of the gintleman from Kildare.-Cho.

Now I'm going into politics and swell my reputation,
I want to be a Congressman and lead a delegation;
I'll be a good friend to all the boys, they'll always find me square,
So let all turn out and loudly shout for the gintleman from Kildare.-Chorus.
