GUEST,Sean MacRuaraidh Origin: I'll Tell Me Ma (60* d) RE: Help: I TELL ME MA 16 Nov 00


This is a good song and is adaptable by region ...

Edinburgh : She is the girl from the golden city Belfast : she is the belle of (the) Belfast City

I always sing Jenny Murray.

Jenny Murray and Albert Mooney sound like Belfast names but I suppose they could be Scottish too.

I am orig. from Belfast and there were Mooney's and Murray's in my school.

I think the following adaption is peculiar to N.Ireland.

My Aunt Jane, she called me in, She gave me tea out her wee tin, Half a bap with sugar on the top And three wee mice from her wee shop.

(A bap is a large round bread roll, the mice are sugar mice )
