One of my favorite folk songs out there. And they(by which I mean The Young Dubliners) covered it(as usual) brilliantly!
Artist: The Young Dubliners
Song: I'll Tell Me Ma
Album: With all Due Respect
Hope ya love the song as much as I.
I'll tell me ma when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pull my hair & stole my comb
But that's all right till I get home
She is handsome, she is pretty
She is the belle of Dublin city
She is 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 at the door and they ring 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
Old Jenny Murphy says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye
Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
Snow come shovelin' from the sky
She is sweet as apple pie
She'll get 'er own lad by and by
When she gets a lad of her own
She won't tell her ma when she goes home
Let them all come as they will
It's Albert Mooney she loves still
