McSorley's Two Beautiful TwinsAuthor: ?
Mrs. McSorely had two little twins And two little darlins they were They kept bawlin and squalin the whole blessed night Had I mind her you I do declare. They kept bawlin and squaling the whole blessed night Like the sound of a fisherman's horn Not a devil a wink any night have I slept Since the two little darlins were born Mr McSorely said a Christening we'll have just to give the poor darlins a name, Said Mrs. McSorely a Christening we'll have And a good one to be sure for the same. Well for godmothers May and Mag Murphy stood up And for godfathers came the two Flynns Dyanicious Ofya, Patricia Marya, were the names that they christened the twin. With the beer and the whiskey the whole blessed night We couldn't stand up on our pins What an elegant time at the christening we had Of Mc Sorely's two beautiful twins. Now Mr. Mc Sorely jumped up in a rage And threatend Mr Mullins his life He said Oh Mr Mullins, I'll break the first man Who dare lay a hand on me wife. Now the Flynns and the Murphys they had an old grudge And the Murphys pitched into the Flynns They fought like the devil Turned over the beds Sure they smothered the two little twins. Oh with the beer and the whiskey the whole blessed night We couldn't stand up on our pins. What an elegant time at the christening we had Of McSorely's two beautiful twins. Thanks Liz Lennon
