Dropkick Murphys - (F)lannigan's Ball lyrics

rate me

In the town of Milton one

Brian Flannigan battered away till his money was spent

Then he hit a big one and felt like a man again,

Bought a three decker with two floors for rent

He threw a big party for friends

And relations at a grand old place called Florian Hall

And if you'll just listen I'll make your eyes glisten

To the rows and the ructions of Flannigan's ball.


Six long months I spent in quincy,

Six long months doing nothing at all,

Six long months I spent in quincy

Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball

I stepped out and I stepped in again,

I stepped out and I stepped in again,

I stepped out and I stepped in again

Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball.

Free beer on tap and wine for the ladies,

Ziti and sauce for mark porzio

There were faheys and bradys,

Mcauliffes and daleys courtin the girls and dancing away.

Brian tully sang out in his finest form,

The patron's responded and I lead em all

I'd spent 6 months at Forbes Academy

Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball


The boys were hammered the girls were hearty

Dancing around in couples and groups

An accident happened young Dennis Flemming

Put his right leg through miss Finneran's hoops

This gal she fainted and cried bloody murder,

Called for her sons and gathered them all,

Christopher swore he'd go no further

Till he had revenge at Flannigan's ball


In the midst of the melee

Miss Collins fainted her cheeks by now were as red as a rose

Some of the boys declared she was plastered

Had a small drop to much I suppose

Young Scotty Jenkins so big and able

Saw his fair colleen stretched by the wall

Tore the left leg from under the table

And smashed all the dishes at Flannigan's ball

Boy oh boy now this was a rumble myself

Took a lick from mean Ricky Green

But I soon replied to that fine introduction

And gave him a terrible kick in the spleen

Talent the piper nearly got strangled,

They squeezed on his bellows, chanters and all,

The girls in the middle nearly got trampled

And that put an end to Flannigan's ball
