Can anybody help with a song that my Sea Daddy used to sing? It started "I fell in love with a three badge Stoker,
Trollied his arxe on a blank weekend.
I don't remember all the words but it was sung to the tune "A Lonely Goatherd" from the Sound of Music if that jolts any memories.

I've played the Wild Rover for many a year
And I've spent all my 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.

I went to an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady my money was spent
I asked her for a Red Stripe, she answered me "nay"
She said, "Patrons like you, I can get any day!"

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

From out of my pockets I took moneys bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She said, "I have Red Stripes, and wines of the best,
And the words that I said, son, were only in jest!"

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

I'll go back to Jamaica and lie in the sun
But I will play the part of the prodigal son
And if my girl loves me, as oft' times before
Then 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.

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.
I've been a folk singer for many a year
And I never will sing the Wild Rover no more!
