lyrics

CHORUS
I'll tell me ma when I go home,
The boys won't leave the girls alone,
They pulled my hair and 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 a courtin' em, 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 knock on the door and they ring the bell
Saying oh my true love, are you well?
Here she comes, as white as snow,
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
Ole Jenny Murray she says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye.

CHORUS

Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
Let the snow come tumbling from the sky
She's as nice as apple pie
She'll get her own man, by and by
When she does get a lad of her own,
She won't tell her ma 'till she gets home,
Let them all come as they will,
For it's Albert Mooney she loves still.
