Subject(s): Mythology - Classical; Ulysses; Odysseus


Ulysses was a rover, a roamer and a rover
Who sought for high adventure about the sounding sea,
Who roistered and philandered and fought the wide world over,
And lived a life tempestuous and free.

Ulysses was a rover, a roamer and a rover,
While I am but a stay-at-home with never chance to flee,
But when I dream of wandering the wide world blithely over
The spirit of Ulysses wakes in me.

Ulysses was a rover, a roamer and a rover,
And when my hopes are realized and all my dreams come true,
I'll roister and philander and fight the wide world over
The way that old Ulysses used to do.
