MIKE'S THE BOY Arthur Collins - 1909 Brian Hefferan - 2004 Just to look at pretty Little Rosie Shay Would throw a man into a panic Rosie has a most attractive way So she was a kitchen mechanic The iceman told the coalman and the coalman told the rest That she don't like any one man best But oh, my, they never saw How things stood when Rosie went to the door Seven o'clock along comes the milkman (Milk?) (ROSIE: Yes!) He gets a look worthwhile Eight o'clock along comes the iceman (Ice?) (ROSIE: No!) He gets a real sweet smile Nine o'clock along comes the fishman (Fish?) (ROSIE: Sure!) He gets a glance that gives him joy Later in the afternoon comes Mike the cop (MIKE: Come on, move along there now! What the devil you blocking up the sidewalk for?) Mike's the boy! Just to look at Mike the cop when he was home Would start the talk among the neighbours >From his fireside he'll never roam Except when he goes to his labours Then Mrs. Jones told Mrs. Brown and she told Mrs. Dan "Oh, Mike's real good for a married man" But oh, my, they never saw Mike the cop with Rosie Shay at the door Seven o'clock along comes the milkman (Milk?) (ROSIE: Yes!) He gets a look worthwhile Eight o'clock along comes the iceman (Ice?) (ROSIE: No!) He gets a real sweet smile Nine o'clock along comes the fishman (Fish?) (ROSIE: Sure!) He gets a glance that gives him joy Later in the afternoon comes Mike the cop (MIKE: Is that you, Rosie?) (ROSIE: It is, Michael me darlin') (MIKE: Are the folks home, Rosie?) (ROSIE: No, they're not. They're down to the parade) (MIKE: Have you got time for a wee small kiss, Rosie?) (ROSIE: Ah sure, always one for you, Michael. There now, (kissing sounds), aah, Michael) Mike's the boy! (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2007) (Contributed by - April 2007)
