THE PARTY AT THE ODD FELLOW HALL
 
div
 
I met my friend Patrick McKenna, one evening in Burlington Street
He said to me, 'Hi, Tim, my old chum,
Here's a ticket that will give you a treat.'
I took up the card that he offered, 'twas not very large, 'twas small
It said, 'Let a gent and a lady join the party in Odd Fellows Hall.'

Chorus: Waltzes, Polkas, Lancers, Gallops, Glides
Scottische, Mazurka, Quadrilles, and Reels and Slides
Barn Dance, Cotillion, how they danced 'em well
I'll never forget the time, you can bet
I went down to Odd Fellows Hall.


I paid my half crown for the ticket, then I called on Miss McCann
She said she would go to the party 'cause I was such an elegant man
So we went down and jumped in a hansom
The driver says, 'Where shall I call?'
Says I, in a dignified manner, 'You can take us to Odd Fellows Hall.'

Chorus:

McKenna was floor director, he wore a green badge on his chest
A pink necktie tucked in his shirtfront by jove, he was handsomely dressed
And when he waltzed off with Bridget, sure I wasn't in it at all
But I says to meself, 'Whist, McKenna
There's more than one man in the Hall.'

Chorus:

I waited until they had finished, then up to him boldly goes
And I says to him, 'Patsey McKenna, say where did you hire them clothes?'
'You're a liar' says Pat in a second, says I, 'What's that word that ye call?'
And the next minute me and McKenna were cleaning up Odd Fellows Hall.

Chorus:

Next morning, before Justice Vaughan, McKenna and me was brought in
'Two sov'reigns' says he, 'Or a month, sir' and me and Pat hadn't the tin
So we took a short trip in the country, by jove, were feeling quite small
And we lived for a month on the nation, for scrapping in Odd Fellows Hall
