Seven Drunken Nights Lyrics - Flogging Molly

Review The Song (14)



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
So I called me wife and I said to her: Will you 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 you can not see
That's a lovely sow that me mother sent to me
Well, many is a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But a sow with a saddle on sure I never seen before

Now 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
So 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,
sponsored links
still you can not see
That's a lovely blanket that me mother sent to me
Well, many is a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But buttons in a blanket sure I never seen 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 the 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 seen before

And as I went home on Thursday night as drunk as drunk could be
I saw two boots beneath the bed where my two boots should be
Well, I called me wife and I said to her: Will you kindly tell to me
Who owns those 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 seen 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 upon 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 my mother send to me
Hey, it's many a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But a baby boy with wiskers on ive never seen before

NOT Flogging Molly!!! | Reviewer: Sean | 6/16/13

Reviewer "Ian" is correct. Flogging Molly does not do this song. They do have a song "The Seven Deadly Sins" which is completely unrelated. The Dubliners did the best known version of the song.

Chamber Pot Stetson | Reviewer: Bob Schuky | 4/29/13

As I came home on a Saturday night as drunk as drunk could be
I spied a hat upon the rack where my old hat should be
I called to the wife and I said to her, "Would you kindly tell to me who owns that hat upon the rack where my old hat should be?"
Well, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool
Until you cannot see
That's a Chamber Pot that my mother sent to me
Well, it's many the day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But a John B. Stetson Chamber Pot, well, I never saw before

Seventh verse | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/29/13

In a folk singing group years back, we heard a different seventh verse:

When I came home on a Sunday night, as drunk as drunk could be, I spied a pole inside the hole where my own pole should be. so I called me wife and I said to her, will you kindly tell to me, who owns the pole inside the hole where my own pole should be.
Ah, you drunken sot, you silly old fool, and sure you cannot see,
That's a lovely broomstick me mither sent to me.
Well many's the day I've traveled a hundred miles or more,
but a boomstick with two b...s on it, I've never seen before.

Wrong Band | Reviewer: Ian | 1/15/08

Flogging Molly doesn't sing this song. they sing seven deadly sins. The original version of this song is sung by the Dubliners. But I like the Clancy Brothers version better

Saturday and sunday. | Reviewer: Chris | 10/27/07

On the original version of this song recorded by The Dubliners Ronnie Drew says at the beginning of the song" this song is called seven drunken nights but we are only allowed to sing 5 of them". And five of them is all you got. In live concerts the story would be different and so would the verses.

what version do i have | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/16/07

my mp3 file is listed as flogging molly but the lyrics are different, at the end he says " Ah, your drunk your drunk you silly old fool, your drunk your a silly old fool, your drunk, your drunk, you silly old fool, your drunk, your drunk" and the beginning of the song starts with "well, as i came home on..." is this the flogging molly version, i am not too familiar with them to know by voice.

just wondering.... | Reviewer: courtney | 9/26/07

i have a version of seven drunken nights. how can i be sure its flogging molly? it was titled as such when i got it, but i'm not sure. does he sound drunk in it? and the background music sounded like those italian instruments they play at fancy restaraunts in italy....well, yeah. let me know if this is the F.M. version please.

Flogging Molly version | Reviewer: Cory | 8/16/07

Let's try to remember that this is the Flogging Molly VERSION of the song. Listen to the recording....it's as plain as day.

Last 2 verses | Reviewer: Mike | 8/5/07

Here are the last two verses as I've heard them:

As I came home on a Saturday night as drunk as drunk could be
I saw two mitts upon her tits where my old mitts should be
I called to the wife and I said to her, "Would you kindly tell to me who owns those mitts upon your tits where my old mitts should be?"
Well, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool
Until you cannot see
That's a Wonder Bra that me mother sent to me
Well, it's many the day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But a Wonder Bra with fingers, well, I never saw before

As I came home on a Sunday night as drunk as drunk could be
I saw a man running out the door with his pants down to his knees
I called the wife and I said to her, "Would you kindly tell to me who was that man running out the door with his pants down to his knees?"
Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool
Until you cannot see
That's the tax collector that the Queen sent to me
Well, it's many the day I've traveled a hundred miles or more
But an English man who can go till three I never saw before

Enjoy.

Its an Old Song | Reviewer: Danny Boy | 7/17/07

The Post is correct, even though the title says "Seven" there are only five verses. They took the lyrics from an old Irish folk song with the same name, and the Original only has those five verses. (Its just some old Irish humor, the guy is so drunk he takes five days to be seven.)

-- The lyrics are correct! | Reviewer: jeroen | 5/28/07

I agree that 5 days in a song called "seven druken nights" is strange, but I can assure you that "Flogging Molly" only sings abouth these 5 days... so the lyrics posted here are correct.

Last Two Verses | Reviewer: James McGeough | 4/8/07

There are several versions of the last two verses, but these two are suitable in most cases.


And as I went home on Saturday night as drunk as drunk could be
I saw some shorts upon the floor where my boxers should be
Well, I called me wife and I said to her: Will you kindly tell to me
Who owns them shorts upon the floor where my old shorts should be

Ah, you're drunk,
you're drunk you silly old fool,
Still you can not see
That's a old dish rag that my mother send to me
Hey, it's many a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But an open fly on a dish rag ive never seen before

And as I went home on Sunday night as drunk as drunk could be
I saw a man going out the door a little after three.
Well, I called me wife and I said to her: Will you kindly tell to me
Who was that man going out the door a little after three.

Ah, you're drunk,
you're drunk you silly old fool,
Still you can not see
That's the English tax man that the Queen sent to me
Hey, it's many a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But an Englishman that could last 'til three I've never seen before...

Seven Drunken Nights | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/14/07

I agree that although the possible lyrics for Saturday and Sunday nights may be unrecordable due to contemporary censor and marketing issues. They should however be published for literary and folk cultural value.

You Forgot Saturday and Sunday! | Reviewer: Amanda | 10/1/06

Perhaph the last two nights were a little too dirty for you to put on here. But I hoped that you would at least make a note that there are two more, because it looks silly if the song is called SEVEN Drunken Nights, and there are only FIVE contained therein! Just a thought...
