CoverTell My Ma... [level: Easy]
arr. Vijay Singh: Bio and other works | Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series
voicing: SSA | catalog number: SBMP 1286 | duration: 2:20 | price: $2.05
accompaniment: a cappella

“Tell my Ma when I go home the boys won’t leave the girls alone.” So begins the tale told in this clever Irish ballad. Sing the song and then perhaps add a coda of an Irish fiddler improvising on the upbeat tune. Add a dancer or two, and you might have a show-stopper.

Tell My Ma. . .

Tell my Ma when I go home
the boys won’t leave the girls alone,
They pull my hair an’ they steal 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 courtin’ one, two, three,
please won’t you tell me who is he?

Albert Mooney says he loves her,
all the boys are fightin’ for her.
Knock on the door and ring the bell,
“Oh my true love, are you well?”

Here she comes as white as snow,
rings on her fingers an’ bells on her toes.
Old Jenny Murray, she says she’ll die
if she doesn’t get the fellow with the rovin’ eye!

Wind an’ rain a’ the hail blow high,
the snow comes tumbalin’ from the sky,
she’s as nice as berry pie,
she’ll get her own fellow by an’ by.

When she gets a lad of her own,
she won’t tell her Ma when she gets home.
Let the boys say what they will,
it’s Albert Mooney she loves still!
