In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty 
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone 
As she wheeled her wheelbarrow through streets broad and narrow 
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O! 

A-live a-live O! A-live a-live O! 
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O! 

She was a fishmonger and sure it was no wonder 
For so were her father and mother before 
And they both wheeled their barrows through streets broad and narrow 
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O! 

A-live a-live O! A-live a-live O! 
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O! 

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 a-live O! 

A-live a-live O! A-live a-live O! 
Crying cockles and mussels alive a-live O!
