In the town of Milton one
Then he hit a big one and felt like a man again,

And relations at a grand old place called Florian Hall
To the rows and the ructions of Flannigan's ball.
[Chorus:]
Six long months doing nothing at all,
Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball
I stepped out and I stepped in again,
Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball.
Free beer on tap and wine for the ladies,
There were faheys and bradys,

The patron's responded and I lead em all
Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball
[Chorus]
The boys were hammered the girls were hearty
An accident happened you Dennis Flemming

Called for her sons and gathered them all,
Till he had revenge at Flannigan's ball
[Chorus]
In the midst of the melee
Some of the boys declared she was plastered

Saw his fair colleen stretched by the wall
And smashed all the dishes at Flannigan's ball
Boy oh boy now this was a rumble myself
But I soon replied to that fine introduction

They squeezed on his bellows, chanters and all,
And that put an end to Flannigan's ball
[Chorus]In the town of Milton one
Then he hit a big one and felt like a man again,

And relations at a grand old place called Florian Hall
To the rows and the ructions of Flannigan's ball.
[Chorus:]
Six long months doing nothing at all,
Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball
I stepped out and I stepped in again,
Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball.
Free beer on tap and wine for the ladies,
There were faheys and bradys,

The patron's responded and I lead em all
Learning to dance for Flannigan's ball
[Chorus]
The boys were hammered the girls were hearty
An accident happened you Dennis Flemming

Called for her sons and gathered them all,
Till he had revenge at Flannigan's ball
[Chorus]
In the midst of the melee
Some of the boys declared she was plastered

Saw his fair colleen stretched by the wall
And smashed all the dishes at Flannigan's ball
Boy oh boy now this was a rumble myself
But I soon replied to that fine introduction

They squeezed on his bellows, chanters and all,
And that put an end to Flannigan's ball
[Chorus]
