Moldy Mary MacMahone

 

Out in the prairie there lives a girl, she's all the world to me,
    She takes morphine and gumdrops in her tea,
Now when I'm old, and daring and bold, I'll love this girl alone,
    Dear old, Moldy Mary MacMahone

Chorus:

Oh, the jolly, old crawdad's life, now that's the life for me,
    He's always at home you see, not matter how warm it be,
But the crawdad has no telephone,
    To talk to Moldy Mary MacMahone - - WOW!

"Fireman, Fireman, save my child, the lovely lady cried,
    I sure like kids, but I do not like them fried,
So up the ladder the fireman climbed with all his might and main,
    He warmed his hands and he rushed right down again

Chorus:

Oh, the jolly old fireman's life, now that's the life for me,
    He's always at home you see, no matter how warm it be,
But the fireman, he has never know,
    A girl like Moldy Mary MacMahone - - WOW

The window's risen a foot or two, the rain is falling down,
    It falls in the direction in this town,
Frost, it covers the window, and it gives the window pain,
    I wish that I were blind, so I could have a cane

Chorus:

Oh, the jolly old blind man's life, now that's the life for me,
    With a little cup on his knee, where pennies fall fast & free,
But the blind man has no eyes to see,
    A girl like Moldy Mary MacMchone - - WOW!
