Cockles and Mussels (Molly Malone)

Lyrics

(Irish folk song)

1. In Dublin’s fair city where the girls are so pretty,
“Twas there I first met with sweet Molly Malone.
She wheeled her wheelbarrow through the streets broad and narrow, crying,
“Cockles and mussels alive, alive, oh!”
Alive, alive, oh, Alive, alive, oh,
Crying, “Cockles and mussels alive, alive, oh!”

2. She was a fish monger and sure ’twas no wonder
For so were her father and mother before,
They wheeled their wheelbarrows through the streets broad and narrow, cry-ing,
“Cockles and mussels alive, alive, oh!”
Alive, alive, oh, Alive, alive, oh,
Crying, “Cockles and mussels alive, alive, oh!”
