HåvardR Lyr Add: Don't Ask Me to Sing the Wild Rover (38) RE: Lyr Add: Don't Ask Me To Sing The Wild Rover 08 Oct 99

Just reminded me of the last verse a friend of mine adds to "the Wild Rover" whenever a drunken crowd requests it:

I've been a folk-singer for many a year
Can you schiing "The Wild Rover"? (drunken voice, soft Irish "R")
Is all that I hear
So now I'm retiring to live on the dole
and I NEVER will play that "Wild Rover" no more

Incidentally, has anyone heard Eric Bogle's "Plastic Paddy's Pub"? It's generally the same sort of song, but there are a few pieces I haven' figured out yet.
