  • Molly Malone's song

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