I've been a wild rover this many a year
Spent all my money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
Never to be a wild rover no more

And it's no no never
Never never no more
Never never again will I be
A wild rover no more

I went to a shanty I used to frequent
I told the landlady my money was spent
I asked her for credit she answered me nay
Saying customers like you I can get any day

And it's no no never
Never never no more
Never never again will I be
A wild rover no more

I pulled from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
The landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
Saying I've got whiskey and wines of the best
And the words that I uttered were only in jest

And it's no no never
Never never no more
Never never again will I be
A wild rover no more

I'll go home to my parents tell them what I've done
I hope they will pardon their prodigal son
And if they will do as so often before
I never will play the wild rover no more

And it's no no never
Never never no more
Never never again will I be
A wild rover no more

And it's no no never
Never never no more
Never never again will I be
A wild rover no more
