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

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
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the wild rover
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 like yours I could have any day"

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

I took from me pocket ten 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 you told me were only in jest"

And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the wild rover
No, never, 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 home to my parents, confessed what I'd done
And I asked them to pardon their prodigal son
And when they caressed me as oft times before
Now 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

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