I'll Tell Me Ma

  1. I'll tell my ma when I get home
    The boys won't leave the girls alone
    Pulled my hair, stole my comb
    But that's all right till I go home
    She is handsome, she is pretty
    She is the belle of Dublin city
    She is a-courtin' one two three
    Pray can you tell me who is he

    Albert Mooney says he loves her
    All the boys are fightin' for her
    Knock at the door, ring at the bell
    Sayin', Oh my true love, are you well
    Out she comes white as snow
    Rings on her fingers, bells on her toes
    Old Johnny Morrissey says she'll die
    If she doesn't get the fella with the roving eye

    Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
    And the snow come travelling through the sky
    She's as sweet as apple pie
    She'll get her own lad by and by
    When she gets a lad of her own
    She won't tell her ma when she gets home
    Let them all come as they will
    It's Albert Mooney she loves still

    (repeat according to mood)
