This is one of seven versions I have found of a song
which seems to have been originally titled "Our Goodman".

As I went home on a Monday night, as drunk as drunk could be,
I saw a horse outside the door where my ould horse should be,
Well I called me wife and I said to her,
Will you kindly tell to me,
Who owns that horse outside the door where my ould horse should be?
Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly ould fool, and still you cannot see,
That's a lovely sow that me mother sent to me,
Well it's many a day I travelled a hundred miles or more,
But a saddle on a sow sure I never saw before.

And as I went home on a Tuesday night,
As drunk as drunk could be,
I saw a coat behind the door where my ould coat should be,
Well I called me wife and I said to her,
Will you kindly tell to me,
Who owns the coat behind the door where my ould coat should be?
Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly ould fool, and still you cannot see,
That's a woollen blanket that me mother sent to me,
Well it's many a day I travelled a hundred miles or more,
But buttons on a blanket sure I never saw before.

And as I went home on a Wednesday night, as drunk as drunk could be,
I saw a pipe upon the chair where my ould pipe should be,
Well I called me wife and I said to her,
Will you kindly tell to me,
Who owns the pipe upon the chair where my ould pipe should be?
Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly ould fool, and still you cannot see,
That's a lovely tin whistle that me mother sent to me,
Well it's many a day I travelled a hundred miles or more,
But tobacco in a tin whistle sure I never saw before.

As I came home on a Thursday night,
As drunk as drunk could be,
I saw two boots beneath the bed where my ould boots should be,
Well I called me wife and I said to her,
Will you kindly tell to me,
Who owns them boots beneath the bed where my ould boots should be?
Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly ould fool,
And still you cannot see,
They're two lovely geranium pots me mother sent to me,
Well it's many a day I travelled a hundred miles or more,
But laces in geranium pots sure I never saw before.

And as I went home on a Friday night,
As drunk as drunk could be,
I saw a head inside the bed where my ould 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 ould head should be?
Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly ould fool, and still you cannot see,
That's a baby boy that me mother sent to me,
Well it's many a day I travelled a hundred miles or more,
But a baby boy with his whiskers on sure I never saw before.
