In Dublin’s fair city where the girls are so pretty
I first laid my eyes on sweet Molly Malone
She wheeled her wheelbarrow through streets broad and narrow
Crying: “cockles and mussels alive, alive-o”

 Refrein:

Alive, alive-o, alive, alive-o
Crying: “cockles and mussels alive, alive-o”

She was a fishmonger, but sure ’t was no wonder
Cause so were her mother and father before
they wheeled their wheelbarrow through the streets broad and narrow
Crying: “cockles and mussels alive, alive-o”

Refrein

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-o”

 Refrein 2 x
