I’ve been a wild rover for many a year,
And I’ve spent all my money on whiskey and beer,
But now I’m returning with gold and 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 to an alehouse I used to frequent,
And I told the landlady my money was spent,
I asked her for credit, she answered me nay,
Saying customs like you I can get any day.
I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
And the landlady’s eyes opened wide with delight
She said I’ve whiskey and wine of the best
And the words that I spoke, they were only in gest.
I went to a shithouse I used to frequent
And told the attendant my money was spent
I asked him politely to open the door
He said not bloody likely, you’ll shit on the floor.
I went home to my parents, confessed what I’d done
And asked them pardon their prodigal son,
And as they caressed me as oft’as before,
I never will play the wild rover no more
I’ve been a wild rover for most of my life,
Now I’ll settle down and I’ll take me a wife,
I’ll build a log cabin, keep the wolf from the door,
And I never will play the wild rover no more
I’ve been a vile pervert for many a year,
And I spent all my money on black leather gear,
But now I’m returning with porn in great store,
So I never shall play the vile pervert no more.
