Barleyjuice – I'll Tell Me Ma lyrics

I'll tell me ma when I get home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pulled my hair 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 courtin' one two three
Please won't you tell me who is she?

Albert mooney says he loves her
All the boys are fighting for her
They rap at the door they ring at the bell
Saying "oh me true love, are you well?"
Out she comes as white as snow
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
Jenny murray says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fellow with the rovin' eye

I'll tell me ma when I get home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pulled my hair 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 courtin' one two three
Please won't you tell me who is she?

Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
The snow come tumbling from the sky
She's as nice as apple pie
She'll get her own love by and by
When she gets a lad all of her own
She won't tell her ma when she gets home
Let them all say as they will
It's albert mooney loves her still

I'll tell me ma when I get home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pulled my hair 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 courtin' one two three
Please won't you tell me who is she?
