Seven Drunken Nights

In the style of

The Dubliners

Lyrics

oh as i went home
on monday night
as drunk
as drunk could be

i saw a horse
outside the door
where my old horse
should be

well i called me wife
and i said to her
will ya kindly
tell to me
who owns that horse
outside the door
where my old horse
should be

ah you're drunk
you're drunk
you silly old fool
still ya cannot see
that's a lovely sow
that me mother
sent to me

well it's many a day
i've traveled
a hundred
miles or more
but a saddle
on a sow sure
i never saw before

and as i went home
on tuesday night
as drunk
as drunk could be
i saw a coat
behind the door
where my old coat
should be

well i called me wife
and i said to her
will ya kindly
tell to me
who owns that coat
behind the door
where my old coat
should be

ah you're drunk
you're drunk
you silly old fool
still you cannot see
that's a
woolen blanket
that me mother
sent to me

well it's many a day
i've traveled
a hundred
miles or more
but buttons
in a blanket sure
i never saw before

and as i went home
on wednesday night
as drunk
as drunk could be
i saw a pipe
upon the chair
where my old pipe
should be

well i called me wife
and i said to her
will ya kindly
tell to me
who owns that pipe
upon the chair
where my old pipe
should be

ah you're drunk
you're drunk
you silly old fool
still you cannot see
that's a lovely
tin whistle
that me mother
sent to me

well it's many a day
i've traveled
a hundred
miles or more
but tobacco
in a tin whistle
sure i never
saw before

and as i went home
on thursday night
as drunk
as drunk could be
i saw two boots
beneath the bed
where my old boots
should be

well i called me wife
and i said to her
will ya kindly
tell to me
who owns them boots
beneath the bed
where my old boots
should be

ah you're drunk
you're drunk
you silly old fool
still you cannot see
they're two lovely
geranium pots
me mother
sent to me

well it's many a day
i've traveled
a hundred
miles or more
but laces in
geranium pots
i never saw before

and as i went home
on friday night
as drunk
as drunk could be
i saw a head
upon the bed
where my old head
should be

well i called me wife
and i said to her
will ya kindly
tell to me
who owns that head
upon the bed
where my old head
should be

ah you're drunk
you're drunk
you silly old fool
still you cannot see
that's a baby boy
that me mother
sent to me

well it's many a day
i've traveled
a hundred
miles or more
but a baby boy
with his whiskers on
sure i never
saw before
