Dropkick Murphys - The Wild Rover lyricsrate 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
