[verse 1]
Billy Maloney loved Maggie Mahoney,
A sqeezable, pleasable pearl,
Maggie was sighable,
quite glorifiable,
And a most eyeable girl.
Nightly she'd meet him brightly she'd greet him
And smile in her cute little way.
He'd say, "Shall we go, dear,
and take in the show, dear?"
And she'd answer, "No dear,"and say:

Give me a spin in your Mitchell, Bill,
My goodness gracious!
I can't keep still,
Buzz me along on the boulevard,
Let 'er go, Willie boy, good and hard,
Throw it wide open, I'll hold on tight,
I don't care a fudge if my hair's a fright,
There's nothing that gives me such a keen delight
As a spin in your Mitchell, Bill.

[verse 2]
Gee this is jolly,
look out for the trolly,
There, Willie, oo golly, that's near,
Mercy, don't blow up Bill,
you'd better slow up Bill,
That copper's watching us dear.
Chugging and churring,
in moonlight and whirring
Along at a merry old clip.
"Ain't it delightful?
although the speed's frightful,
Don't mind, Bill, just let 'er rip."

[repeat chorus]
