W:I've been a wild rover for many's the year
W:And I spent all my money on whiskey and beer,
W:But now I'm returning with gold in great store
W:And I never will play the wild rover no more.
W:
W:Chorus:
W:And it's no, nay, never,
W:No nay never no more,
W:Will I play the wild rover
W:No never no more.
W:
W:I went to an alehouse I used to frequent
W:And I told the landlady my money was spent.
W:I asked her for credit, she answered me "nay
W:Such custom as yours I can have any day."
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:I took out from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
W:And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight.
W:She said "I have whiskey and wines of the best
W:And the words that I told you were only in jest."
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done
W:And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son.
W:And when they caress me as ofttimes before
W:Sure I never will play the wild rover no more.
W:
W:Chorus
