Molly Malone

In Dublin’s fair city,
Where the girls are so pretty,
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone,
As she wheeled her wheel barrow
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, “Cockles and mussels,
Alive, alive oh!”.

Chorus:: Alive, alive oh! alive, alive oh!
Crying “cockles and mussels,
Alive alive oh!”.

She was a fishmonger
And sure ‘twas no wonder,
For so was her mother and father before,
And she wheeled her wheelbarrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, “Cockles and mussels,
Alive, alive oh!”.

Chorus

She died of a fever,
And no one could save her,
And that was the end
Of sweet Molly Malone.
Now her ghost wheels her barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying “Cockles and mussels,
Alive, alive oh!”.

Chorus, Repeat

—-Traditional
