Soldier, Won't You Marry Me?

from 'Love Songs for Springtime'
Text: Traditional English
Music: Paul Halley

Soldier, soldier, won't you marry me?
Itís O a fife and a drum.
How can I marry such a pretty girl
When Iíve no hat to put on?

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.

Soldier, soldier, won't you marry me?
Itís O a fife and a drum.
How can I marry such a pretty girl
When Iíve no coat to put on?

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.

Soldier, soldier, won't you marry me?
Itís O a fife and a drum.
How can I marry such a pretty girl
When Iíve no shoes to put on?

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.

Soldier, soldier, won't you marry me?
Itís O a fife and a drum.
How can I marry such a pretty girl
And a wife and baby at home?

Off to the tailor...

Off to the...

And a wife and baby at home!
