Wild Rovers
And that will make papa Look withered and dry.
You can't step aside, boys,
To speak to a friend
Without your wife at your elbow
Saying, " What does this mean? "
Your wife, she will scold
And there is sad news.
Dear boys, take warning;
'Tis a life to refuse.
•If you chance to be riding Along the highway And meet a fair maiden, A lady so gay, With red, rosy cheeks And sparkling blue eyes,— Oh, heavens! what a tumult In your bosom will rise 1
One more request, boys, Before we must part: Don't place your affections On a charming sweetheart; She'll dance before you Your favors to gain. Oh, turn your back on them With scorn and disdain!
