Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

Molly Malone

Cockels and Mussels
Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty,
I first set me eyes on sweet Molly Malone,
As she wheeled her wheelbarrow, through the 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!"

She was a fishmonger, and sure 'twas no wonder,
For so were her father and mother before,
And they wheeled their wheelbarrow, through the streets broad and narrow,
Crying "cockles and mussels, alive alive oh!"

Chorus

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 the streets broad and narrow,
Crying "cockles and mussels, alive alive oh!"

Chorus
