I'll Tell Me Ma

Girlies PubClapping


An Irish street song. This was sung by little girls in the streets of Ireland, it was a skipping-rope (jump-rope) song - a cheery, cheeky wee song of the times “I’ll tell me ma’ when I get home, the boys won’t leave the girls alone, they pulled my hair and stole my comb… but that’s all right… ‘til I get home!”.


It skips along brightly with the banjo and bass pushing it along, it has a wee banjo solo and a couple of solo singing parts backed up by my 10 trusty “clappers”, it has a great momentum all of its own.


Instruments : 12-string guitars, bass, banjo, D-whistle, vocals, clapping
