Tell Me Ma

January 26, 2012
Traditional Irish Tune

I'll tell me ma when I go home, the boys won't leave the girls alone.

They pull me hair they stole me comb but that's all right til I go home.

She is fine and she is pretty, she's the belle of Belfast city.

She is counting one two three

Please won't ye tell me who is she?

Albert Mooney says he loves her, all the boys are fightin for her.

Old Jenny Murphy says she'll die if she doesn't get the fella with the rovin eye.

Let the wind and the hail and the snow blow high, let the snow come shovelin from the sky.

She's as fine as apple pie, she'll get her own lad bye and bye.
