Here's the link to the sheet music at the Library of Congress website; those appear to be the only two verses.

T'Shovel

Might as well have the lyrics here, don't you think? I checked these against the sheet music.

MY BRAND* NEW T'SHOVEL.
By C. R. Dockstader. ©1881.

1. Down on the dock they had a row.
'Twas all on board of a canal scow.
Arrah! jolly sailors, come tell me true:
Is my brand new t'shovel,
Is my brand new t'shovel on board wid you-ou-ou?
Is my brand new t'shovel on board wid you?
Arrah! jolly sailors, come tell me true:
Is my brand new t'shovel,
Is my brand new t'shovel on board wid you-ou-ou?
Is my brand new t'shovel on board wid you?

2. Oh, the captain on the deck he stood.
He was covered all over wid dirt and mud.
Arrah! jolly sailors, I tell you true:
Paddy Clancy broke,
Paddy Clancy broke your brand new t'shovel in two-oo-oo.
Paddy Clancy broke your brand new t'shovel in two.
Arrah! jolly sailors, I tell you true:
Paddy Clancy broke,
Paddy Clancy broke your brand new t'shovel in two-oo-oo,
Paddy Clancy broke your brand new t'shovel in two.

[* On the sheet music cover, the song title is MY BRAND NEW T'SHOVEL; however, on the first page, the title is MY BRAN NEW T'SHOVEL, and, throughout the lyrics, the spelling "bran" is used. I have used "brand" in the above lyrics because of its familiarity.--JD]
