McGilligan's Daughter

Traditional Arrangement The Black Family
Now the Dublin girls are grand Up in Kimmage they lead the band The Inchicore girls they charm the Isle of Man Well there is a maiden sweet Not a mile from Francis Street Find her equal in the world if you can Chorus She's a darlin', she's a daisy And she drives the fellas crazy Her sister Maryanne has had her day No matter where she goes everybody knows She's McGilligan's youngest daughter, Maggie May Now she doesn't have to hike Or see McHugh about a bike She is not a girl that's built that way She perfers the bit o'swank With a chappie from the bank She's invited every evening out to Bray Chorus x2 Now her hair's a raving hue All the boys are raving too She is an awful toff to be sure In her neat suit as well Sure she is a terrible swell She swears she'll marry a toff from Terenure Chorus Now the Dublin girls are grand Up in Kimmage they lead the band The Inchicore girls they charm the Isle of Man Well there is a maiden sweet Not a mile from Francis Street Find her equal in the world if you can Chorus x2
