Words by Fred Darcy. Music by Samuel H. Speck.

My name is O'Brien, I'm a great politician,
I came from the evergreen sod,
While my friend Michael Byan,
Whose honest position in life is to carry the hod,
We're always a-joking, we never are croaking,
With laughter and singing we drive away tears;
We're always hand-shaking, and never leave-taking,
Friendly neighbors for twenty-five years.

Our families both, for many a day, have lived side by side;
The years have come and passed away, but our friendship has never died;
We both get light, but never fight, so we've no cause for fears-
Michael Ryan Pat O'Brien, friendly neighbors for twenty-five years.

We never go out unless we go together;
We're both like the Siamese twins;
No two better friends ever stepped in shoe leather-
The style we possess always wins.
The full approbation of all our great nation
Is given to us two without doubt or sneers.
When you find O'Brien, you'll surely find Ryan-
Friendly neighbor? for twenty-five years.- Chorus.
