Words and Music by Arthur West.

The brothers Maloney were rollicking boys,
Both well known in the Dublin city;
They had a companion named Patsey McGee,
And they know to their cost its a pity.
There was all the three of them stood on the bridge
That goes o'er the beautiful Liffey,
When the wind caught a hold of Maloney's new hat,
In the water it went in a jiffy.

Aye, our faith it's a terrible tale.
The hat that they lost wasn't found:
But it's all through the hat And the action of Pat,
That the brothers Maloney got drowned.

When it fell in the water a corner it got,
Near the bridge it was steadily Hunting:
Says Pat, "'We had better be gelling it out,
But we havn't a chance to go boating.
Here, Mickey Malone, you get over the bridge.
And your feet will be held by your brother;
You'll be near the water to get the hat out.
While I'm sticking on to the other." - Chorus.

Well, Mickey was first to get over the bridge,
he was upside down held by his brother;
And Patsey McGee, who was strong as a bull,
He took on a firm hold on the other.
He heard Mickey say, "Put us half an inch lower,
And I'll have my hat out in a jiffy."
Says Pat. "Hould on there while I spit on my hands!"
So the two tumbled into the Liffey.-Chorus.
