Soldier, Won't You Marry Me?
2   Off to the tailor she did go As hard as she could run,
Brought him back the finest was there. Now, soldier, put it on.
3   Soldier, soldier, won't you marry me ? It's O a fife and drum.
How can I marry such a pretty girl as you When I've got no coat to put on ?
4   Off to the tailor she did go As hard as she could run,
Brought him back the finest was there. Now, soldier, put it on.
5   Soldier, soldier, won't you marry me ? It's O a fife and drum.
How can I marry such a pretty girl as you When I've got no shoes to put on ?
6   Off to the shoe shop she did go As hard as she could run,
Brought him back the finest was there. Now, soldier, put them on.
7   Soldier, soldier, won't you marry me ? It's O a fife and drum.
How can I marry such a pretty girl as you And a wife and a baby at home ?
