I've been a Wild Rover for many's the Year
And I spent all my money on Whiskey and Beer
And 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 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
Such a Customer as yours I can find every day

And it's no, nay, never...

I took from my pocket ten Sovereigns bright
And the Landlady's eyes opened up with delight
She said she had Whiskeys and Wines of the best
And the words that She told me were only in jest

And it's no, nay, never...

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

And it's no, nay, never...
