Seven Drunken Nights

A bawdy classic for any tavern. Best when sung as a male-female duet.

Recordings: The Dubliners, Arrr!, The Pogues have a modernized version, I'm sure there are many more



As I came 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 "Hey wife, will you kindly tell to me
Who owns that horse outside the door where my old horse should be?"
"Ahhh, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly old fool
So drunk you cannot see
That's a lovely sow that me mother gave to me"

Well it's many a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But a sow with a saddle on sure I never saw before

As I came 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 "Hey wife, will you kindly tell to me
Who owns that coat behind the door where my old coat should be?"
"Ahhh, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly old fool
So drunk you cannot see
That's a lovely blanket that me mother gave to me"

Well it's many a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But a blanket with buttons on sure I never saw before

And as I came 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 "Hey wife, will you kindly tell to me
Who owns that pipe upon the chair where my old pipe should be?"
"Ahhh, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly old fool
So drunk you cannot 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 a tin whistle with tobacco in sure I never saw before

And as I came 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 "Hey wife, will you kindly tell to me
Who owns them boots beneath the bed where my old boots should be?"
"Ahhh, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly old fool
So drunk you cannot 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 geranium pots with laces on sure I never saw before

And as I came 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 "Hey wife, will you kindly tell to me
Who owns that head upon the bed where my old head should be?"
"Ahhh, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly old fool
So drunk you cannot see
That's a lovely 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 came home on Saturday night as drunk as drunk could be
I saw two mitts upon the tits where my old mitts should be
Well I called me wife and I said "Hey wife, will you kindly tell to me
Who owns them mitts upon the tits where my old mitts should be?"
"Ahhh, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly old fool
So drunk you cannot see
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 a night gown with fingers on sure I never saw before

And as I came home on Sunday night as drunk as drunk could be
I saw a thing inside her thing where my old thing should be
Well I called me wife and I said "Hey wife, will you kindly tell to me
Who owns that thing inside your thing where my old thing should be?"
"Ahhh, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly old fool
So drunk you cannot see
That's nothing but a hammer that me mother sent to me"

Well it's many a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But a hammer with a head like that I never saw before



Alternate lyrics:

You can use "Will you please explain to me" instead of "Will you kindly tell to me"

Other options for the last verse are a rolling pin, a candle, a carrot, or basically any other phallic object you can think of


As I went home on Sunday night as drunk as drunk could be
I lad sneaking out the back, a quarter after three.
Well, I called me wife and I said "Hey wife, will you kindly tell to me
Who was that lad sneaking out the back a quarter after three?"
"Ahhh, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly old fool
So drunk you cannot see
That was just the tax man that the Queen she sent to me"

Well it's many a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But a tax man who can last till three I've never seen before
