P.A. Kelly

In Dublin’s fair city where the girls are so pretty
I first set my eyes upon Molly Malone
As she wheeled her wheelbarrow through the streets broad and narrow
Crying, “Cockles and mussels! Alive, alive-o!”

REFRAIN
Alive, alive-o
Alive, alive-o
Crying, “Cockles and mussels! Alive, alive-o!”

She was a fishmonger and sure twas no wonder
For so were her father and mother before
And they each wheeled their barrow through the streets broad and narrow
Crying, “Cockles and mussels! Alive, alive-o!”

(repeat REFRAIN)

She died of a fever and no one could save her
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone
But her ghost wheels her barrow through the streets broad and narrow
Crying, “Cockles and mussels! Alive, alive-o!”

(repeat REFRAIN)
