Words by Ed. Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.
As sung by Ed. Harrigan in "Mordecai Lyons."

I drive a butcher cart, I serve my meal around
Among the low and upper ten, all over New York town;
I've got a sweetheart, boys, a beauty I call Lill,
She's a servant in a family that lives on Murray Hill.

It's ev'ry morning early, when I am feeling well,
I skip down from the butcher cart and ring the basement bell;
She meets me like a baby, my dainty little Lill,
She's just the cream, the girl I mean, she lives on Murray Hill.

On Sunday, when it's fine, I drive out for a ride,
I cut the proper caper, boys, when she is by my side;
And when we strike the park, I hand the reins to Lill,
The people say," Oh, who are they, those swells from Murray Hill?" -Chorus.

Some day I'll own a stall in the market down below.
And then I'll tie up to my love, she'll be Mrs. Reilly, oh!
I'll give the boss blow-out, you bet, I'll dress to kill,
We'll marry in the lower ward, and not on Murray Hill.-Chorus.
