The Wild Rover

And it's no nay never (clap 4 times)
no nay never no more
And i´ll play the wild Rover
no never no more

I´ve been a wild Rover
for many a year
and I´ve spent all my Money
on Whisky 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 (clap 4 times)
no nay never no more
And i´ll play the wild Rover
no never no more

I went into an Alehouse
I used to frequent
and I told sthe Landlady
my Money was spent
I asked her for credit
she answered me nay
saying Custom like You
I can have any Day

And it´s no nay never (clap 4 times)
no nay never no more
And i´ll play the wild Rover
no never no more

I took from my Pocket
ten Sovereigns bright
an the Landlady´s eyes
opened wide with Delight
She said "I have Whiskeys
and Wines of the best -
and the Words that I told You
were only in Jest"

And it´s no nay never (clap 4 times)
no nay never no more
And i´ll play the wild Rover
no never no more

I´ll go home to my Parents
confess what I´ve done
And I´ll ask them to pardon
their prodigal Son
and when they have kissed me
as oft-Times before
I never wil play
the wild Rover no more.

And it´s no nay never (clap 4 times)
no nay never no more
And i´ll play the wild Rover
no never no more

And it´s no nay never (clap 4 times)
no nay never no more
And i´ll play the wild Rover
no never no more
