"Has anybody here seen Kelly? Kay ee double ell wy." (U6.373)

'Has Anybody Here Seen Kelly?', music and lyrics by C.W. Murphy & Will Letters (1908), is a British music hall song, originally titled 'Kelly From the Isle of Man'. It was adapted in America by William McKenna for the musical 'The Jolly Bachelors' (1909). Here caricatured, it tells of an Irishwoman looking for her sweetheart. The chorus goes:
"Has anybody here seen Kelly?
Kay ee double ell wy,
Has anybody here seen Kelly?
Have you seen him smile?
Sure his hair is red, his eyes are blue,
And he's Irish through and through,
Has anybody here seen Kelly?
Kelly from the Emerald Isle"
