Words and Music by Joseph Flynn.

Oh, to night I'm out upon a spree, my heart is full of joy,
For this morn' I got a wonderful surprise;
Shure my wife made me a present of a pair of bouncing twins,
So I laid off work to go and tell the boys.
I collected all my wages from the foreman right away,
And I put on all the best clothes in my trunk;
So now. If you want to join me, boys, to celebrate the day.
Why just come and we will soon be blinding drunk.

Oh, for I'm out upon a racket, I have money in my jacket.
Let ye not at all be backward, but just come along with me;
We'll stop over to McGinty's, and we'll smoke and drink in plenty,
Michael Slather's now a father, and he is on a roaring spree.

You can order what you fancy, for with joy I'm nearly wild,
And I want to give you all a splendid time;
For all previous to this hour I had neither chick nor child.
Ah, but now I've two that's stout and fat, and prime.
And I'm going to celebrate it if it costs me every cent.
That I've scraped and saved out of my monthly pay;
For I'm exceedingly elated at this wonderful event,
I'm the father of two baby boys to day.-Chorus.

Shure I haven't lost an hour, no not one this blessed month,
So it's time I had a little jollity; I
And there's not a man among you, if it happen'd to yourself now,
That wouldn't go and get upon a spree. -
The old woman said this morning if I came home drunk to-night,
She would let me have a sweet taste of a row;
But I'm going to buy a cradle for the babies on our way.
That will soften the old girl anyhow.-Chorus.
