Statur von Molly Malone mit ihrem Verkaufswagen in der Suffolk Street in Dublin

In [G]Dublin's fair [Em]city, where the [Am]girls are so [D7]pretty
I [G]first set my [E7]eyes on sweet [A7]Molly Ma-[D7]lone

Crying, [G]"Cockles and [Bm]mussels, a-[D7]live, alive, [G]oh!"

She [G]was a fish-[Em]monger and [Am]sure 'twas no [D7]wonder
For [G]so were her [E7]father and [A7]mother be-[D7]fore
