To Show my Respects to McGinnis

To Show My Respects To Mcginnis.

The other night I stepped into the Shamrock Hotel,
Just to pay my respects to McGinnis.
For as I was passing I thought it as well,
To pay my respects to McGinnis.
There was two or three fellows stood just round the bar,
And as soon as I entered I said there ye’s are,
Let ye all take a drink and a ten cent cigar,
Just to show your respects for McGinnis.

O’Brien then said, let us be jolly to-night,
Just to show our respectf to McGinnis,
McCarthy then swore that he must have a fight,
Just to show our respects for McGinnis.
Then Murphy swore, and these words he did say, Now, gentlemen, let ye be aisy, I pray,
And enjoy yourself in a clane dacent way,
Just to show your respects to McGinnis.

Then Sullivan began for to sing a nice song,
Just to show his respects to McGinnis,
And as he was getting just nice and quiet along,
When O’Brien he clouted McGinnis,
We all got a fighting, we slugged left and right,
And Flanagan’s breath put out the light,
But Murphy, the cop, locked us all us that night,’
And we all got a cursing McGinnis.
