A 
As I went home on a Monday night,
A 
As drunk as drunk could be,
 
I  
D 
saw a horse out
A 
side the door
 
Where  
E 
my old horse should be.
 
Well, I  
A 
called my wife and I said to her:
 
“Will you  
D 
kindly tell to me,
 
Who owns that horse out
A 
side the door
 
Where  
E 
my old horse should  
A 
be?”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Ah you’re  
A 
drunk, you’re drunk, you silly old fool.
 
Still you  
D 
cannot 
 
 
A 
see,
 
That’s the  
D 
lovely 
 
 
A 
sow
 
That my  
E 
mother gave to  
A 
me.
 
Well, it’s  
A 
many a-day I travelled,
 
A  
D 
hundred miles or  
A 
more,
 
But a  
D 
saddle on a  
A 
sow
 
Sure I  
E 
never saw be
A 
fore.

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 you 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 can not see
That’s a woollen blanket
That me mother sent to me.
Well, it’s many a day I’ve travelled
A hundred miles or more
But buttons on 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 up on the chair
Where my old pipe should be.
Well, I called me wife and I said to her:
“Will you kindly tell to me
Who owns that pipe up on the chair
Where my old pipe should be?”

Ah, you’re drunk, you’re drunk you silly old fool,
Still you can not see
That’s a lovely tin whistle
That me mother sent to me.
Well, it’s many a day I’ve travelled
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.

“Will you 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 can not see
They’re two lovely Geranium pots
Me mother sent to me.
Well, it’s many a day I’ve travelled
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 you kindly tell to me
Who owns that head with you in the bed
Where my old head should be?”

Ah, you’re drunk, you’re drunk you silly old fool,
Still you can not see
That’s a baby boy that
Me mother sent to me.
Well, it’s many a day I’ve travelled
A hundred miles or more
But a baby boy with his whiskers on
Sure I never saw before.

And as I went home on Saturday night
As drunk as drunk could be
I saw two hands upon her breasts
Where my old hands should be.

Who owns them hands upon your breasts
Where my old hands should be?”

That’s a lovely night gown
That me mother sent to me
Well, it’s many a day I’ve travelled
A hundred miles or more
But fingers in a night gown
Sure I never saw before.

As I went home on Sunday night
As drunk as drunk could be
I saw a thing in her thing
Where my old thing should be.

Who owns that thing in your thing
Where my old thing should be?”

Ah, you’re drunk, you’re drunk you silly old fool,
Still you can not see
That’s a lovely tin whistle
That me mother sent to me.
Well, it’s many a day I’ve travelled
A hundred miles or more
But hair on a tin whistle
Sure I never saw before.
