Song Lyrics

I'll tell me ma when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
Pulled me hair and stolen me comb
Well, that's alright till I go home

She is handsome, she is pretty
She is the belle of Dublin City
She is courtin' one, two, three
Pray can you tell me, who is she?

Albert Mooney says he loves her
All the boys are fighting for her
They knock at the door and ring at the bell
Saying Oh my true love, are you well?

Out she comes as white as snow
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
Ole Jenny Murray says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fella with the roving eye
