Words and Music by Tony Stanford.
Down in Hogan's Alley lives it kid of great renown,
And 'most ev'ry one sure known him well-in fact, he owns the town.
The neighbors they're all proud of him, his parrot and his goat,
And they would not think of wring him without his yellow coat.
He it not very pretty, But he is very witty:
His name is Mickey Dugan mid the boys around him rally;
On Sunday he looks always belt, in his Li Hung Chung yellow dress;
He is the only yellow kid, and he lives in Hogan's Alley.
His sweetheart's name is "Liza, but he calls her Liz, for short,
And since she knows the yellow kid She is the proper sort,
For every one likes Mickey, and no matter what he does,
They all say that's right, he's out of sight, for he wears yellow
