Tell Me Ma LYRICS

Track is availableas a separate download,
or on the ep
Stranger's Kiss

 Traditional, arranged Dave Peters
(Chorus)
I'll tell me ma when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pulled me hair they stole me comb
But that's alright ‘till I go home

She is handsome she is pretty
She is the belle of Belfast City
She is courting one, two, three
Pray would you tell me who is she

(Verse 1)
Albert Mooney says he loves her
All the boys are fighting for her
They knock at the door
And they ring on the bell say
"hello my love are you well"

Out she comes as white as snow
With rings on her fingers
And bells on her toes
Mary Clabby says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye

CHORUS

(Verse 2)
Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
And the snow come tumbin’ from 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 till she gets home
Let them all come as they will
it’s Albert Mooney she loves still

CHORUS
REPEAT CHORUS
