WILD ROVERS
C OME all you wild rovers And listen to me While I retail to you My sad history. I'm a man of experience Your favors to gain, Oh, love has been the ruin Of many a poor man.
When you are single
And living at your ease
You can roam this world over
And do as you please;
You can roam this world over
And go where you will
And slyly kiss a pretty girl
And be your own still.
But when you are married And living with your wife, YouVe lost all the joys And comforts of life. Your wife she will scold you, Your children will cry, 383
