Subject: Lyr req: Typical Tipperary
From: GUEST,chuck
Date: 23 Jan 01 - 11:47 PM

This is the part I remember from grade school:

Mike O'Rourke left County Cork to sail across the foam
And now it's been a year since he got over here
One day from dear old Ireland Mike received a little note
They asked him how he liked it here and he sat down and wrote:

There's a typical Tipperary, a typical Dublin Bay,
A typical County Kerry in the good old USA.
Although you're many miles from where the shamrocks grow,
You'll find an Irishman wherever you will go.


Need the rest of the chorus and more verses. Anybody remember it?
Thanks.

I found a listing of the title by Abner Silver in a sheet music collection on the net, but no lyrics or anything else.

Spaw

Lyrics found at Richard Densmore's Edison Diamond Disc and 78rpm Record Collection.

(The following lyrics are apparently a transcription of Edison Diamond Disc #50683-R issued in 1920. The disk does not identify the singers.)

THERE'S A TYPICAL TIPPERARY OVER HERE
(Abner Silver)

Mike O'Rourke left County Cork to sail across the foam,
And now it's been a year since he got over here.
One day from dear old Ireland Mike received a little note,
They asked him how he liked it here so he sat down and wrote:

There's a typical Tipperary, a typical Dublin Bay,
A typical County Kerry in the good old USA
Although you're many miles from where the shamrocks grow,
You'll find an Irishman no matter where you go.
There are typical Irish colleens with typical Irish ways,
There's a bit of Blarney, too.
From way out 'Frisco to New York, they walk and they talk just like in Cork,
You'd think that you were home in Ireland.

Mike O'Rourke when he left Cork said "Faith, I won't be lost,
I'm going to a place that loves the Irish race."
When he got here and saw so many Irish everywhere,
It made him feel at home, that's why he wrote back over there:

There's a typical Tipperary, a typical Dublin Bay,
A typical County Kerry in the good old USA
There's Jim A'Little O'Ryan and Michael Donaghue,
George M. Cohan then there's Thomas Dempsey too,
Then there's wonderful John McCormack and Gibbs L. McAdoo,
And they're Irish through and through.
And if you want an Irish street just walk up along Delancey Street,
You'd think that you were home in Ireland.

There are Irish diplomats, typical Irish democrats,
Irish judges and police be guarding the Irish asleep in the street.
On the stage are Irish stars, all of the Irish run the cars,
Irish strikers are the thing for they are the champions of the league.
They've got Irish on the screen; even the money here is green.
They've got everything you know,
But He makes the Hebrews who get all the dough.

There's a typical Tipperary, a typical Dublin Bay,
A typical County Kerry in the good old USA
Although you're many miles from where the shamrocks grow,
You'll find an Irishman no matter where you go.
There are typical Irish colleens with typical Irish ways,
There's a bit of Blarney, too.
From way out 'Frisco to New York, they walk and they talk just like in Cork,
You'd think that you were home in Ireland.

The Henderson Library at Georgia Southern University has a copy of the sheet music, but it is not available online.

You can see the sheet music to THERE'S A TYPICAL TIPPERARY OVER HERE at the website of The Archive of Popular Music at UCLA. Interestingly, it only has the first two verses and the first version of the chorus as given above. So who wrote the rest?

One important correction:

Words by Alex Gerber; music by Abner Silver; ©1922.
