The boys won't leave the girls alone.
But that's alright when I go home.
She's the belle of Belfast City,
Please won't you tell me who is she?
Now Albert Mooney says he loves her,
Knocking on the door and ringing on the bell,
Down she comes as white as snow
Old Johnny Murphy says she'll die

And the snow come shoveling from the sky.
She'll get her own lad by and by!
She won't tell her ma when she comes home.
But it's Patrick Murphy she loves still!
