Tell My Ma
Chorus: Tell my Ma when I get home, the boys won’t leave the girls alone.
They pull my hair and they stole my comb, but that’s 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 won’t 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.
Ol’ Jenny Murphy says she will die if she doesn’t 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.
She’s as nice as apple pie, she’ll get her own lad by and by.
When she gets a lad of her own, won’t tell her Ma till she gets home,
Let them all come as they will, it’s Albert Mooney she loves still.
