I’ll tell me ma when I go home,
the boys wont leave the girls alone,
They pull me hair and stole me comb,
but that’s all right till I go home,
She is handsome, she is pretty,
she is the girl from Belfast City,
She is courting one two three,
please wont you tell me who is she?
Albert Mooney says he loves her,
all the boys are fighting for her.
They knock on her door they ring on her bell
saying “oh me 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 fellow with the roving eye.
Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high,
and the snow come shovelling from the sky,
She’s as sweet as apple pie,
and 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,
but its Albert Mooney she loves still.
