i didn't put this as a lyric request even though i probably should have-

in the song does it go 'cockles and muscles' OR 'Cockles fresh muscles'

i have been having this debate with my friend for a while now and i've only just realised how to put this right by asking the mudcat!!!!!!!!!!

I just went and had a look at the DigiTrad under Molly Malone, and there are two veriosn, NEITHER of which I learned to sing at school. (and no wonder - the nuns would never have allowed us to sing about 'titties' Irish or not *grin* )

Is this the NC17 version?

In Dublin's fair city, where the girls have no titties T'was there that I first met sweet Molly Malone You could have her for a penny, and be one of many, But for sixpence she would act alive, alive-o!

Alive, alive-o! Alive alive-o! But for sixpence she would act alive, alive-o!

She was a street walker, and sure t'was no wonder For so were her mother and grandmother too, With a mattress on the barrow, thru streets broad and narrow, And for sixpence they would act alive, alive-o!

Alive, alive-o! Alive alive-o! And for sixpence they would act alive, alive-o!

She died of a fever, and no one could save her; It was caught from a folkie from Ontario, Now her ghost wheels the barrow thru streets broad and narrow But a ghost can't be had that's alive, alive-o!

Alive, alive-o! Alive alive-o! But a ghost can't be had that's alive, alive-o!

The song goes back a long time before Ontario folkies came into the picture. Here is an interesting previous thread on the Mudcat which delves into these matters. Not without some controversy.

There is a statue of Molly Malone in Dublin, known by the locals as ' the tart with the cart '
