Oh I’ve been a filk writer, for many a year.
And committed rhymes that have caused many tears.
But I now make a promise from down in my core,
That I never will filk the wild rover no more.
 
So it’s no, nay never (Improvise here)
No nay never, no more!
Well I’ll filk the wild rover, 
no never, no more.
 
The original’s useful, the rhyming scheme’s grand,
but you never will hear it where filking folks stand.
The closest you’ll get’s where the song is sworn off,
or another well themed one that’s ripped from whole cloth.
 
So it’s no, nay never (Promise I’ll not)
No nay never, no more!
Well I’ll filk the wild rover, 
no never, no more.
 
But there’s versions for Star Wars, and Battlestar G,
Potter, or Tolkien, My Little Pony.
Try for the orig’nal, And what you’ll get comes
Directly from Harry Enfield and Chums.
 
So it’s no, Nay, never (Some git shouts “ARSE”)
No nay never, no more!
Well I’ll filk the wild rover, 
no never, no more.
 
And so there’s this promise, I hope you’ll embrace.
To stop spreading this filk song all over the place.
And If this thing works, then the same trick I’ll try
for Lola, Boh Rap, and American Pie.
 
So it’s no, nay never (Music has died!)
No nay never, no more!
Well I’ll filk the wild rover, 
no never, no more.
 
(I realise I promised, and then promise broke.
But it really did not work as a one verse joke.
So I hope you’ll forgive me my sin of the song.
Don’t think I can stop your head singing along)
 
To the No, Nay, Never (This one’s the last)
No nay never, no more.
For I’ll Filk the Wild Rover.
Not ever, no more.
