TELL ME MA


Chorus

Tell me ma when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pull my hair and stole my comb
But that's alright til I go home
Cause she is handsome, she is pretty
She's the belle of Belfast City
She is courting one, two, three
Oh, please won't you tell me who is she?


***********

Albert Mooney says he loves her
All the boys are fighting for her
They're knocking on the door and ringing on the bell
Saying "Oh, my true love, are you well?"
Out she comes as white as snow
Rings on her fingers, bells on her toes
Old Jenny Murphy says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fella with the roving eye

Chorus

***********

Let the wind and the rain and the hail come high
And snow come tumbling from the sky
She's as nice as apple pie
And she'll get her own love bye and bye
When she gets a lad of her own
She won't tell her ma when she comes home
Let them all come as they will
For it's Albert Mooney - she loves him

Chorus

***********
