THE WILD ROVER

I've been a wild rover for many's the year
and I've spent all my money on whisky and beer.
But now I'm returning with money in great store
and I never will play the wild rover no more.
And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
will I play the wild rover no never no more.

I went into an ale-house I used to frequent
and I told the landlady my money was spent.
I asked her for credit, She answered ne: "Nay,
Such a custom as yours I can have ev'ry day".

And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
will I play the wild rover no never no more.

Then I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
and the lanlady's eyes opened winde with delight;
she said: "I have whisky and wine of the best
and the words that you told me were only in jest".

And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
will I play the wild rover no never no more.

I'll go home to my parents confess what i have done
and I'll ask them to pardon the prodigal son,
and when thes caress me as oft-times before,
I never will play the wild rover no more.

And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
will I play the wild rover no never no more.
