Edward M. Favor sings "Who Threw The Overalls In Mrs. Murphy's Chowder?"

Mistress Murphy gave a party just about a week
ago. Everything was plentiful--the Murphys,
they're not slow. They treated us like gentlemen;
we tried to act the same. Only for what happened--
well, it was an awful shame.

When Mrs. Murphy dished the chowder out she
fainted on the spot. She found a pair of overalls at
the bottom of the pot. Tim Nolan he got ripping
mad--his eyes were bulging out. He jumped upon
the piano and loudly he did shout.

"Who threw the overalls in
Mrs. Murphy's chowder?"
Nobody spoke, so he shouted all
the louder.
"It's an Irish trick, that's true--
I can lick the Mick that threw
the overalls in Mrs. Murphy's
chowder!"

They dragged the pants from out the soup and laid
them on the floor. Each man swore upon his life he'd
ne'er seen them before.

They were plastered up with mortar and were worn out
at the knee. They had their many ups and downs as we
could plainly see.

And when Mrs. Murphy she came to she 'gan to cry and
pout. She had them in the wash that day and forgot to
take them out.

Tim Nolan, he excused himself for what he said that
night, so we put music to the words and sang with all
our might.

"Who threw the overalls in
Mrs. Murphy's chowder?"
Nobody spoke, so he shouted
all the louder.
"It's an Irish trick, that's true--
I can lick the Mick that threw
the overalls in Mrs. Murphy's chowder!"
