VP_008733 Verse 1My sister Kate gave a party last night, And all of her girl friends were there, They spoke about all of the chances they had, To marry some big millionaire, Mary O'Brien said "girls I'm not lyin' But I gave up beaus by the score," Then my sister Katie, said "listen, my lady, What I did for one I adore." Chorus 1I gave up Jimmy Rogers, Who owns two garages, All for the love of Mike, I gave up Tim McIver, the taxicab driver, All for the love of Mike, I've had offers from this one and offers from that one, Now you can think just what you like, And begosh I'm not joshin' I'm takin' in washin' All for the love of Mike. Verse 2All of her girl friends just laughed right out loud, When my sister told her romance, They said "Kate I'll bet that you fell mighty proud, You sure gave up many a chance!" After the party they felt good and hearty, For oh, what a time they had all, 'Twas late in the evening and as they were leaving, They started to sing in the hall. Chorus 2I gave up Jimmy Rogers, Who owns two garages, All for the love of Mike, I gave up a swell sailor, a doctor and tailor, All for the love of Mike, I've had butchers and bakers and candlestick makers, Now you can think just what you like, Mary Pickford sent her thanks, 'cause I gave up Fairbanks, All for the love of Mike.
