Subject: lyrics to o'briens got no place to go From: GUEST,Tennsquir@aol.com Date: 07-Jun-01 - 11:55 AM

Does anyone know the words to "O'Briens got no place to go"? Some of the lyrics are "don't go into the parlor dad, Joanies in there with her beau, don't go into the kitchen dad, I'll be in there with my fella." Any help would be appreciated a lot. Thank you, Bernie Feeney

(I'll go look)

O'BRIEN HAS NO PLACE TO GO
(Lyrics by Stanley Murphy / music by George Evans)

Now, Dennis O'Brien has three daughters fine,
The fairest young girls on the block;
And between you and me, every night after tea,
To O'Brien's the boys would all flock.

Young Mickey Clancey stepped in to see Nancy,
Tim McCann stepped in to see Rose;
And young Mickey Kelley stepped in to see Nell,
With a plea to her father she'd go.

Don't go into the front room, Dad,
Nancy's in there with her caller;
Daddy dear, won't you stay out here,
Rose has her friend in the parlour.
Don't go into the kitchen, Dad,
I'll be out there with my beau;
Now, since all of his girls have got steady young men,
Sure O'Brien has no place to go.

Last Saturday night, O'Brien got tight,
And he says to himself, now we'll see;
If three young galoots, dressed up in dude suits,
Make a wandering fool out of me.

Out went McCann on O'Brien's brogan,
Mickey Kelley and Clancey got sore;
They went over the stoop like an acrobat's troupe,
Now O'Brien will hear this no more.

Don't go into the front room, Dad,
Nancy's in there with her caller;
Daddy dear, won't you stay out here,
Rose has her friend in the parlour.
Don't go into the kitchen, Dad,
I'll be out there with my beau;
Now, since all of his girls have got steady young men,
Sure O'Brien has no place to go.

From the sheet music at Baylor University. I have boldfaced the words that are different from those posted above.


O'BRIEN HAS NO PLACE TO GO
Words by Stanley Murphy, music by George Evans.
New York: Remick, ©1908.

1. Dinny O'Brien has three daughters fine,
The prettiest girls on the block;
And 'twixt you and me, each night after tea,
the boys to the O'Briens' they flock.
Young Marty Clancey comes 'round to see Nancy,
While Tim McCann calls upon Rose;
And when Eddie Kelley drops in to see Nelly,
With this plea to papa she goes:

CHORUS: Don't go into the front room, Dad,
Nancy's in there with a caller;
Daddy dear, won't you stay out here,
Rose has her friend in the parlor.
Don't go into the kitchen, Dad,
I'll be out there with my beau;
Since each of his girls has a steady young man,
Sure O'Brien has no place to go.

2. Saturday night, O'Brien was tight,
And says to himself, now we'll see;
If three young galoots, dressed up in dude suits,
Make a wandering Jew out of me.
So out went McCann on O'Brien's brogan,
While Marty and Ed feeling sore
Went over the stoop like an acrobat troupe;
Now O'Brien hears this plea no more: CHORUS
