Gail, It's called an Irish Polka and is pretty quick and bouncy. Play on, FF

Here's the second and third. Albert Mooney says he loves her, All the boys are fighting for her. They rap at the door, they ring the bell, Saying "Oh my true-love are you well?" Out she comes a 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. Let the wind and the rain, and the hail blow high, And the snow come shovelling from the sky. Oh, she's as nice as apple pie, And 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, But it's Albert Mooney she loves still. Enjoy and play on, FF
