Clancy Brothers
Wild Rover (no Nay Never) lyrics

I've been a wild rover for many a year
And I spent all me money on whiskey and beer,
But 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,
No nay never no more,
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more.

Now as you see this, you are probably wondering, "and her point is??" Well. let me explain. I am a huge fan of music, it's magical. It inspires me, makes me laugh, picks me up when I'm down and, can energize me. I'm sure that I drive those around me crazy with my incessant parodies; however, the grandkids love them. Yes, I know that they are too young to know any better.

Well, I wanted to blog today, and is often my case, I couldn't think of anything to say that someone would want to read. BTW, just because you are reading this, I am not assuming that you want to read it. So this song above went through my head and I was "changing up" the words right away and ended up with "Jane's Version".

I've been a beached whale for many a year
I've spent all my money on fattening cheer.
But now I'm returning with "Spark" in great store,
And I never will play the beached whale no more.
And it's NO,NAY,NEVER,
NO, NAY, NEVER no more,
Will I play the beached whale,

For those of you that are just dying to know the tune, here's the link to my beloved Clancy Brothers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v

Just be happy that I only put you through 1 verse and the chorus. So, I leave you on this fine Sunday with a bit of insight into how I cope with life and a renewed commitment to getting in shape. I wish all of you a grand and glorious new week...

    Love the song, loved the Clancy Bros. & Tommy Meacam. I saw them in concert in New Jersey about 20 years ago. Your version was very cute. Thanks for posting.
