Words and Music by John T. Kelly.

Mickey Doolan and his wife they gave a social party;
Sure, ev'ry one assembled-it was his wedding night;
And when the band played "Garry Owen" we yelled so loud and hearty,
But when they played "Die Wacht am Rhein" I thought we'd have a fight.
First we had supper, and then the sport began;
How we laughed at funny jokes And Comic songs they sang!
We drank the health of every one, then drank them o'er and o'er,
And when the ball it did commence I thought they'd break the floor.

Singing and dancing, I never saw the like;
Oh, what funny sights to see!
When Casey tried to dance the "Midway Plaisance,"
Up at Mickey Doolan's coterie-Dance.

'Course. I had to be in style, for fashion is my hobby;
I hired a dandy dress suit to wear upon that night;
The coat and vest were elegant, they fit so nice and nobby;
The pants I hardly could get on, they were so awful tight.
So, to be graceful, we danced the Boston dip;
All at once I had to stop, for something gave a rip.
I backed up in a corner then and sat there all alone;
In a yellow, long-tailed duster coat I managed to sneak home.-Chorus.
