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
