lyrics

I'll tell me ma, when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pull my hair, and stole my comb,
But that's alright, til I go home,
She is handsome, she is pretty,
She is the Belle of Belfast City,
She is a-courting, 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,
Knock on the door and ring on the bell,
Oh my true love, are you well?
When she comes as white as snow,
Rings on her fingers, bells on her toes,
Old Jenny Murray says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fella with the rovin' eye,

I'll tell me ma, when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pull my hair, and stole my comb,
But that's alright, til I go home,
She is handsome, she is pretty,
She is the Belle of Belfast City,
She is a-courting, ONE, TWO, THREE!
Please won't you tell me who is she?

Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
As the snow comes tumbling 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 when she gets home,
Let them all come, as they will,
For it's Albert Mooney she loves still.

I'll tell me ma, when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pull my hair, and stole my comb,
But that's alright, til I go home,
She is handsome, she is pretty,
She is the Belle of Belfast City,
She is a-courting, ONE, TWO, THREE!
Please won't you tell me who is she?

I'll tell me ma, when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pull my hair, and stole my comb,
But that's alright, til I go home,
She is handsome, she is pretty,
She is the Belle of Belfast City,
She is a-courting, ONE, TWO, THREE!
Please won't you tell me who is she?

I'll tell me ma, when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pull my hair, and stole my comb,
But that's alright, til I go home,
She is handsome, she is pretty,
She is the Belle of Belfast City,
She is a-courting, ONE, TWO, THREE!
Please won't you tell me who is she?
