I've been a wild rover for many's the year
And I spent all me money on whiskey and beer
but now I'm returning with gold in great store
and I promise to 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

but I went to an ale house I used to frequent
and I told the landlady me money's all spent
but I asked her for credit she answered me nay
sure a custom like yours I can 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 lent from my pocket I took sovereigns bright
and the landlady's legs opened wide with delight
she says I have whiskey and wines of the best
and the words that I spoke were to ya only in jest

And it's no nay never
no nay never no more
will I play the wild rover
no never no more
but I'll go home to my parents confess what I've done
and I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son
and if they'll embraced me as oft times before
I promise to 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..
