RAMBLIN` ROVER
(Andy M. Stewart)

Oh, there're sober men and plenty,
And drunkards barely twenty,
There are men of over ninety
That have never yet kissed a girl.
But give me a ramblin' rover,
Frae Orkney down to Dover.
We will roam the country over
And together we'll face the world.

There's many that feign enjoyment
From merciless employment,
Their ambition was this deployment
From the minute they left the school.
And they save and scrape and ponder
While the rest go out and squander,
See the world and rove and wander
And are happier as a rule.

I've roamed through all the nations
In delight of all creations,
And enjoyed a wee sensation
Where the company, it was kind.
And when partin' was no pleasure,
I've drunk another measure
To the good friends that were treasure
For they always around were mine.

If you're bent wi' arthiritis,
Your bowels have got Colitis,
You're gallopin' with bollockitis
And you're thinkin' it's time you died,
If you've been a man o' action,
Though you're lying there in traction,
You will gain some satisfaction
Thinkin', "Jesus, at least I tried."
