Book/Printed Material Flaming O'Flannagans. H. De Marsan, 60 Chatham Street, N. Y
As Sung by GEO. W. ANDERSON, Irish Vocalist .
Now I'm of age, Ill come into my property,
Devil a ha'penth Ill think of but fun;
'Tis myself will be putting the ladies in papoutry,
Just to prove I'm my daddys own son.
Och, now, Mistress Honey, I'll teach ye civility,
Judy O'Doole escape if you can—
I'm the boy that will show you the sweets of gentility,
Loving most women and fearing no man.
For that was the way with the Flaming O'Flannagans,
From the first illigant boys of that name,
For kissing and courting, and filling the can again,
Drinking and fighting like cocks of the game.
The tazing, the cursing, the shouting, the shooting,
The clattering of glasses—the breaking of sculls
The dancing would sure be upon the best footing,
Wid Irish Miss Murphys and English Miss Bulls;
The neat little party you'd like to see revel,
The loves and the whiskey, and the devil knows what,
And the dances that we wacked black and blue like the devil,
And the spalpeens we floored at the very first shot.
Hooroo! whack! c.
O'Brien, he went through the world, without lying,
And he beat the Danes, nine score of them flat,
And faix, after that, the ould Danes beat O'Brien,
And he died victorious, more glory for Pat.
Ever since that, the brave Flaming O'Flannagans
Have fought in each battle, all the way round,
From Killrush to Kilkenny, and all the way back agin,
The blood of O'Flannagans covers the ground.
Hooroo! whack! c.
Do you see how I'm laughed at by all those queer vagabones,
Shouting and screaming, twice as loud as they can?
—Paddy Flyn, I go bail, I give you a sore bag o' bones,
If you'll only come here and turn out like a man.
—Do ye's think Ill stop here untill morning, diverting yes
While me nate jug of punch is cooling outside?
Good-night, boys, you know, I'm sorry from parting yes,
But the love of the whiskey was always me pride.
Hooroo! whack! c.
