A McGillicuddy is Here [song lyrics]

Song lyrics to A McGillicuddy is Here from the I Love Lucy episode, Lucy Goes to Scotland, performed by Lucille Ball, Larry Orenstein, townspeople

Mayor: Aye, that you are! There never was a McGillicuddy could dance worth a hoot! Oh! Aye, do you know what that means, lads? Ha, ha, ha! A McGillicuddy is here! [all cheering, music begins]

When you meet a McGillicuddy
Coming through the rye
Then you’ve got a real buddy
Who for you would die!

Townspeople:
There’s nothing a McGillicuddy would not do for ye
Do you want her shirt, her kilt, her cat? Ha, ha!
She’ll give you that
Lucy:
That’s me!

Mayor:
Give a cry! Hiye! A cry! Hiye! A cry and a yell and a cheer
Give a cry and a yell and a hoot and a hiye
A McGillicuddy is here!

ALL:
Give a cry and a yell and a hoot and a hiye
A McGillicuddy is here!

Mayor:
Oh, ’tis very nice to see a McGillicuddy face
Even though it nae may be very long around this place [winks]
If you’re a McGillicuddy, you’re a heck of a regular fella.

Lucy:
Yeah, well, my mother was a Cuddy and my father was a Megillah.

Townspeople:
There’s nothing a McGillicuddy would not do for ye

Mayor:
If it’s feed you need or a friendly chat
She’ll give you that

Lucy:
That’s me!

Mayor: Give a hoot
A hoot
Give a hoot and a yell and a cheer
Give a hoot and a yell and a cry and a hiye
A McGillicuddy is here

ALL:
Give a hoot and a yell and a cry and a hiye
A McGillicuddy is here!

Lucy:
You make me feel so welcome
You really have the knack
And though I’ve not been here before I sure am glad I’m back!
Some cousins of my mother’s
Are they around here yet?

Mayor:
The McGillicuddy brothers?

Lucy:
Aye.

Mayor: Ha, ha, ha! Hail fellas- well et! [laughter] There’s

ALL:
nothing a McGillicuddy would not do for ye

Lucy:
I’d give you my Davy Crockett hat
My shillings, my fillings
My cricket bat
My candied yams, my brandied quince
My TV antenna, my henna rinse!

Townspeople:
To save us strife
She’ll give us her life!

Lucy:
That’s me!
That’s me?

Townspeople:
Give a yeoww! Yeoww! Burrr! Burrr! A yeoww and a burrr
And a cheer
Give a yeoww and a burrr and a burrr and a yeoww
A McGillicuddy is here!

Lucy:
Give a yih and a hih and a who and a wha’
A McGillicuddy was h-h-here

Townspeople:
A McGillicuddy is here
A McGillicuddy is here
A McGillicuddy is here!
