Tell My Ma

Chorus:  Tell my Ma when I get home, the boys wonít leave the girls alone.

They pull my hair and they stole my comb, but thatís all right till I get home.

She is handsome, she is pretty, she is the belle of Belfast city,

She is courting one, two, three. Please wonít you tell me who is she.


1) Albert Mooney says he loves her, all the boys are fighting for her.

They knock on the door and they ring the bell "Oh my true love, are you well"

Out she comes as white as snow, rings on her fingers and bells on her toe.

Olí Jenny Murphy says she will die if she doesnít get the fella with the roving eye.



2) Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high,

and the snow come tumbling from the sky.

Sheís as nice as apple pie, sheíll get her own lad by and by.

When she gets a lad of her own, wonít tell her Ma till she gets home,

Let them all come as they will, itís Albert Mooney she loves still.
