Sham Rock - Tony Crombie & His Rockets

Sham Rock

Tony Crombie & His Rockets

(Lee - Eily, COLUMBIA, 1956)

In the streets of Dublin City
Where the girls are all so pretty
The boys go dancin' with sweet Molly Malone
Though the streets so broad and narrow
Where she used to wheel that barrel
The streets are rockin' so alive, alive-o
Well it's sham rock, well it's sham rock
Well it's sham rock, well it's sham rock, sham rock
Was there ever such a London Derry Air

In Treed and in Philarney [*]
There's a brand new kind of blarney
That's like no blarney that you ever have known
Though at first it seems so shockin'
Everybody now is rockin'
The streets are rockin' so alive, alive-o
Well it's sham rock, well it's sham rock
Well it's sham rock, well it's sham rock, sham rock
Was there ever such a London Derry Air

Well it's sham rock, well it's sham rock
Well it's sham rock, well it's sham rock, sham rock
All the streets are rockin'
They're rock, rock, rockin'
The streets are rockin' so alive, alive-o
