Dropkick Murphys Flannigans Ball Lyrics

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, McCauliffes and Daleys
courtin the girls and dancing away.

Brian tully sang out in his finest form,
the patrons 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 b_____ 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, too 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.
