WE ARE THE ROVERS
Will you have a glass of wine ?
We are the rovers! Will you have a glass of wine ?
For respect of guardian soldiers !
A glass of wine won't serve us all,
Though you're the rovers ! A glass of wine won't serve us all,
For we are the guardian soldiers!
Will a barrel of beer then serve you all ?
We are the rovers! Will a barrel of beer then serve you all ?
As you are the guardian soldiers!
A barrel of beer won't serve us all,
Though you're the rovers! A barrel of beer won't serve us all,
For we're gallant guardian soldiers !
We will send our blue-coat men,
We are the rovers ! We will send our blue-coat men,
Though you are the guardian soldiers!
We don't fear your blue-coat men,
Though you're the rovers ! We don't fear your blue-coat men,
For we are the guardian soldiers !
We will send our red-coat men,
We are the rovers! We will send our red-coat men,
Though you are the guardian soldiers !
We don't' mind your red-coat men,
Though you're the rovers ! We don't mind your red-coat men,
For we are the guardian soldiers !
