SOLDIER, WON'T YOU MARRY ME?
1.   Now, now, soldier, wont you marry me? For O the fife and drum
How can I marry such a pretty girl as you When I've got no hat to put on?
2.   Off to the hat-shop she did go As hard as she could run;
Got him a hat and all fine things. Now, soldier, put them on.
3.   Now, now, soldier, won't you marry me? For O the 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;
Got him a coat and all fine things. Now, soldier, put them on.
5.   Now, now, soldier, won't you marry me? For O the 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;
Got him shoes and all fine things. Now, soldier, put them on.
7.    Now, now, soldier, won't you marry me? For O the fife and drum
How can I marry such a pretty girl as you, And a wile and a baby at home?
