Cockles and Mussels Song

klik hier voor de tune   
   
In Dublin's fair city,  
where the girls are so pretty  
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone  
As she wheeled her wheel-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!  
   
She was a fish-monger,  
but sure 'twas no wonder  
For so were her father and mother before  
And they each wheeled their 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!  
   
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-O!  
Alive, alive-O! alive, alive-O!  
Crying cockles and mussels, alive, alive-O!
