Thread Name: Lyr Req: a different Molly Malone
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: a different Molly Malone
I've always had the second verse as:

Patrick had a brother who was already there
And together they built him a home,
And Patrick O'Leary he planted a rose
For his Molly, sweet Molly Malone
And his dreams were an echo of the song in her heart,
His Molly so far far away.

I'm not 100% sure it's right, but the 'home' line continues the rhyme pattern accurately.
