Dropkick Murphys - The Wild Rover lyrics

rate me

I've been a wild rover for many's the year,

And I've spent all me money on whiskey and beer.

But now I'm returning with gold in great store,

And I never will play the wild rover no more


And it's no, nay, never! (clap-clap-clap-clap)

No, nay, never, no more! (clap-clap)

Will I play the wild rover (clap)

No, never, no more.

I went into 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 as yours I could have any day."


I took from me pocket ten sovereigns bright,

And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight.

She said, "I have whiskeys and wines of the best,

And those words that I spoke sure were only in jest."


I went home to my parents, confessed what I'd done

And I asked them to pardon their prodigal son

And when they'd caressed me as oft times before

I never will play the wild rover no more
