Lyrics:

I'll tell me ma when I get home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pulled my hair, stole me comb
But that's all right till I go home

She is handsome, she is pretty
She is the Belle of Belfast city
She is a courtin' a one two three
Please can you tell me who is she

Albert Mooney says he loves her
All the boys are fightin' for her
They're knockin' at the door and ringin' at the bell
Sayin' Oh, me true love, are you well

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

Chorus

Tell me ma when I get home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pulled me hair, they stole my comb
But that's all right till I go home

She is handsome, she is pretty
She's the Belle of Belfast city
She is a courtin' a one two three
Please can you tell me who is she

Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
And the snow come tumblin' from the sky
She's as sweet as apple pie
She'll get her own lad by and by

When she gets a laddie 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

Tell me ma when I get home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pulled me hair, they stole my comb
But that's all right till I go home

She is handsome, she is pretty
She's the Belle of Belfast city
She is a courtin' a one two three
Please can you tell me who is she
