Copyright, 1880, by Mrs. Pauline Lieder.
By Jim O'Neil and Jack Conroy. Arranged by Ned Straight.

How are you's one and all? sure we thought we'd make a call
And tell you all about the widow's party;
'Twas at Pythogora's Hall we gave a break-down ball
And invited all the young folks gay and hearty;
There was handsome Paddy Grace, sure, he's now on the police,
He was put there by a political party.
He came from County Cork to the City of New York;
He joked And sang And made us laugh so hearty.

Ah, the charming Widow Clancy,
She was any man's fancy;
She was a fluent talker
And a rattling six-day walker,
And a Venus is the charming Widow Clancy.

McGinn sang "Pinafore" 'till his throat was very sore,
And "Little Dundeen," sang by Smith so sweetly;
Crosby sang a little ditty, the girls all called him witty,
And McGuffin done an Irish jig so neatly.
Flynn sang "Dancing on the Green," also "She's a Fairy Queen";
Flood sang "Hold the Fort for We're the Strongest Party ";
And Murphy and Tim Lang done the "Lackawanna Gang,"
Down at the charming Widow Clancy's party.-Chorus.

As it was growing late, sure, we thought 'twas time to ate;
We went in two-by-two's down to the supper;
We were hardly seated right when there was a fearful fight,
For McGinnis swore the whiskey was all water;
All around 'twas hand-and-hand, and they nearly killed the band,
When in step'd the famous boxer, Mike McCarthy;
He swore by pow'rs above that he'd just put on the gloves
And clear out ev'ry sucker in the party. -Chorus.
