Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I'll tell me ma, when I go home, the boys won't leave the girls alone
They pull my hair, they stole my comb, and that's alright till I go home
She is handsome, she is pretty, she's the belle of Belfast City
She is courtin', one, two three, please won't you tell me who is she

Allemande and weave the ring
Albert Mooney says he loves her, all the boys are fighting for her
They knockin' at the door and they ringin' at the bell
Saying "Oh, my true-love are you well?"

Swing, promenade
Out she comes as white as snow, rings on her fingers, bells on her toes
Old Jenny Murphy says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Head two couples pass the ocean
Ping pong circulate one time
Extend, do slide thru now
Load the boat, love are you well?
Out she comes as white as snow
Rings on her fingers
, relay the deucey
Old Jenny Murphy says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye
I'll tell me ma, when I go home, the boys won't leave the girls alone
They
scoot back knows stole my comb
Swing and promenade go home
She is handsome, she is pretty, she's the belle of Belfast city
She is courtin', one, two, three, please won't you tell me who is she?


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Head two ladies chain across turn the girl around you
Lead left, left dosado one time round the ring you go
Left swing thru and centers trade
Follow your neighbor back to wave
Relay the deucey, says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye
Albert Mooney says he loves her, all the boys are fighting for her
They knockin' at the door and they ringin' at the bell

Swing and promenade
Love are you well?
Out she comes as white as snow, rings on her fingers, bells on her toes
Old Jenny Murphy says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fellow with the roving eye

I'll Tell Me Ma
 
 

I'll tell my ma when I get home,
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pull my hair and stole my 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' one, two, three,
Please won't you tell me who is she

Albert Mooney says he loves her,
All the boys are fightin' for her
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, bells on her toes
Ould Johnny Morrissey says she'll die
If she doesn't get the fella with the roving eye

Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high
And the snow come travelin' through 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

Recorded by Van Morrison; Sinead O'Connor; many others.
