FOUR O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING
(Jim Brannigan)

Oh Nancy dear Nancy please open the door
It's four o'clock in the morning
My Head it is aching my Back it is sore
And the daylight is fairly dawning.

Ah Johnny, dear Johnny now where have you been
Til four o'clock in the morning?
Were you out drinking whisky or out drinking gin
Til the daylight was fairly dawning?

Oh no I was not drinking whisky or gin
Til four o'clock in the morning
So come down the stairs now and let me come in
for the daylight is fairly dawning.

Or were you out dancing with some other girl
Til four o'clock in the morning?
In her bonnie plaid shawl and her hair all in curls
Til the daylight was fairly dawning?

Ah yes I was dancing with some other girl
Til four o'clock in the morning
In her bonnie plaid shawl and her hair up in curls
Til the daylight was fairly dawning?

Then Johnny, dear Johnny I won't let you in
It's four o'clock in the morning
And I swear by my life not to see you again
When the daylight is fairly dawning.

Ah Nancy, dear Nancy's the bane of my life
At four o'clock in the morning
So I might as well just go on home to my wife
For the daylight is fairly dawning.

So all you bold drinkers who rove on the town
Til four o'clock in the morning
Be true to your mistress and don't fool around
When the daylight is fairly dawning.
