In Dublin's fair city where the girls are so pretty,
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone;
She wheeled her wheelbarrow
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, cockles and mussels, alive, alive-o.

Alive, alive-o, alive, alive-o;
Crying, cockles and mussels, alive, alive-o.

She was a fishmonger, and sure 'twas no wonder,
And so were her Father and Mother before;
They both wheeled their barrows
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, cockles and mussels, alive, alive-o.

Alive, alive-o, alive, alive-o;
Crying, cockles and mussels, alive, alive-o.

She died of the 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.

Alive, alive-o, alive, alive-o;
Crying, cockles and mussels, alive, alive-o.

Alive, alive-o, alive, alive-o;
Crying, cockles and mussels, alive, alive-o.
