W: W:Chorus: W:And it's no, nay, never, W:No nay never no more, W:Will I play the wild rover W:No never no more. W: W:I went to an alehouse I used to frequent W:And I told the landlady my money was spent. W:I asked her for credit, she answered me "nay W:Such custom as yours I can have any day." W: W:Chorus W: W:I took out from my pocket ten sovereigns bright W:And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight. W:She said "I have whiskey and wines of the best W:And the words that I told you were only in jest." W: W:Chorus W: W:I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done W:And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son. W:And when they caress me as ofttimes before W:Sure I never will play the wild rover no more. W: W:Chorus
