Mr. McAnally and His Ould High Hat.
Copyright, 1889, by Harding Brothers.
Words and Music by Harry Kernell.
I'm an old sport from Erin's Isle, my face you all well know,
I travel about from place to place and don't care where I go;
I never borrow trouble, or care for this or that.
But sport around like a la-da-da and wear my ould high hat.
Mister McAnally and his ould high hat,
Has the style And the way of a fine aristocrat;
There's none can tip the blarney from Kilkenny to Killarney,
Like Mister McAnally and his ould high hat.
In Summer I go to Coney Isle and stroll upon the sands,
And I often hear the music of Gilmore and his band;
I go to the races every day, and often have them pat.
For many a winning ticket I have carried in my ould hat.-Chorus.
