I ve been a wild rover for many a year
And Ive spent all me money on whiskey and beer,
And now I'm returning with gold in great store,
And I never willplay the wild rover no more

Chorus

And it's no nay never
No nay never no more
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more

I went to an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady me money was spent
I asked her for credit. she answered me, Nay
Such a custom like yours I culd have any day

Chorus

Then out of my pockets I took sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She says I have whiskeys and wines of the best
And the words that I said were only in jest

Chorus

I go home to my parents, confess what I've done
And I ask them to pardon their prodigal son
And if they caress me as oft times before
I never will play the wild rover no more

Chorus
