(f)lannigan's Ball Lyrics

In the town of Milton one Brian Flannigan
Battered away till his money was spent,
Then he hit a big one and felt like a man again,
Bought a three decker with two floors for rent

He threw a big party for friends and relations
At a grand old place called Florian Hall,
And if you'll just listen, I'll make your eyes glisten
To the rows and the ructions of Flannigan's ball!

Six long months I spent in Quincy,
Six long months doing nothing at all,
Six long months I spent in Quincy
Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball
I stepped out and I stepped in again,
I stepped out and I stepped in again,
I stepped out and I stepped in again
Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball

Free beer on tap and wine for the ladies,
Ziti and sauce for Mark Porzio,
There were Faheys and Bradys,
McCauliffes and Daleys, courtin' the girls and dancing away

Brian Tully sang out in his finest form,
The patrons responded and I lead 'em all
I'd spent 6 months at Forbes Academy
Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball


The boys were hammered, the girls were hearty,
Dancing around in couples and groups,
An accident happened when young Dennis Flemming
Put his right leg through Miss Finneran's hoops

This girl she fainted and cried bloody murder,
Called for her sons and gathered them all
Christopher swore he'd go no further
'Till he had revenge at Flannigan's ball


In the midst of the melee, Miss Collins fainted
Her cheeks by now were as red as a rose
Some of the boys decreed she was plastered
Had a small drop too much, I suppose

Young Scotty Jenkins, so big and able,
Saw his fair Colleen stretched by the wall
Tore the left leg from under the table
And smashed all the dishes at Flannigan's ball!

Boy oh boy, now this was a rumble
Meself took a lick from mean Richard Green
But I soon replied to that fine introduction
And gave him a terrible kick in the spleen!

Colin the piper nearly got strangled,
They squeezed on his bellows, chanters and all,
The girls in the middle nearly got trampled
And that put an end to Flannigan's ball
