W:I'll tell me ma when I go home
W:The boys won't leave the girls alone
W:They pull my hair, and they steal my comb
W:But that's all right till I go home
W:
W:She is handsome, she is pretty
W:She is the belle of Belfast city
W:She is courtin' one, two, three
W:Please, won't you tell me, who is he?
W:
W:Albert Mooney says he loves her
W:All the boys are fighting for her
W:Knock at the door and ring the bell
W:Sayin', oh my true love, are you well?
W:
W:Out she comes as white as snow
W:Rings on her fingers, and bells on her toes
W:Old Jenny Murray says she'll die
W:If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye
W:
W:Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
W:And the snow come tumbling from the sky
W:She's as nice as apple pie
W:She'll get her own lad by and by
W:
W:When she gets a lad of her own
W:She won't tell her ma when she comes home
W:Let them all come as they will
W:For it's Albert Mooney she loves still
