Flannigans Ball  Dropkick Murphys



[Am]In the town of Milton one
Brian Flannigan battered a[G]way till his money was spent
[Am]Then he hit a big one and felt like a man again,
[Am]Bought a three decker with two floors for rent
[Am]He threw a big party for friends
And relations at a grand old p[G]lace called Florian Hall
[Am]And if you'll just listen I'll make your eyes glisten
[Am]To the rows and the ructions of Flannigan's ball.
[Am]Six long months I spent [G]in quincy,
[Am]Six long months doing nothing at a[E]ll,
[Am]Six long months I spent in[G] quincy

[Am]Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball
I s[Am]tepped out and I stepped[G] in again,
[Am]I stepped out and I stepped i[E]n again,
[Am]I stepped out and I stepped [G]in again
[Am]Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball.

[Am]Free beer on tap and wine for the ladies,
[G]Ziti and sauce for mark porzio
[Am]There were faheys and bradys,
[Am]Mcauliffes and daleys courtin the girls and dancing away.
[Am]Brian tully sang out in his finest form,
[G]The patron's responded and I lead em all
[Am]I'd spent 6 months at Forbes Academy
[Am]Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball

[Am]The boys were hammered the girls were hearty
[G]Dancing around in couples and groups
[Am]An accident happened you Dennis Flemming
[Am]Put his right leg through miss Finneran's hoops
[Am]This gal she fainted and cried bloody murder,

[G]Called for her sons and gathered them all,
[Am]Christopher swore he'd go no further
[Am]Till he had revenge at Flannigan's ball

[Am]In the midst of the melee
[G]Miss Collins fainted her cheeks by now were as red as a rose
[Am]Some of the boys declared she was plastered
[Am]Had a small drop to much I suppose

[Am]Young Scotty Jenkins so big and ableG
[G]Saw his fair colleen stretched by the wall
[Am]Tore the left leg from under the table
[Am]And smashed all the dishes at Flannigan's ball
[Am]Boy oh boy now this was a rumble myself
[G]Took a lick from mean Ricky Green
[Am]But I soon replied to that fine introduction
[Am]And gave him a terrible kick in the spleen
[Am]Talent the piper nearly got strangled,
[G]They squeezed on his bellows, chanters and all,
[Am]The girls in the middle nearly got trampled
Am (pause)
And that put an end to Flannigan's ball

End on Am
