Molly Malone

  • (James Yorkston)
    1. In Dublin's fair city where the girls are so pretty
      I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone
      Where she wheeled her wheelbarrow
      Through streets broad and narrow
      Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh".

      Chorus
      Alive, alive oh, alive, alive oh,
      Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh".
    2. She was a fishmonger and sure 'twas 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, alive oh"
    3. 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 streets broad and narrow
      Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh"

    Arranged by Schlagsaite 1996
