Soldier, soldier, will you marry me
With your musket, fife and drum?
Oh how can I marry such a pretty little girl
When I have no coat to put on?

Off to the tailor she did go
As fast as she could run
She brought him back the finest that was there
Now soldier, put it on

Soldier, soldier, will you marry me
With your musket, fife and drum?
Oh how can I marry such a pretty little girl
When I have no shoes to put on?

Off to the cobbler she did go
As fast as she could run
She brought him back the finest that was there
Now soldier, put them on

Soldier, soldier, will you marry me
With your musket, fife and drum?
Oh how can I marry such a pretty little girl
When I have no hat to put on?

Off to the hatter she did go
As fast as she could run
She brought him back the finest that was there
Now soldier, put it on

Soldier, soldier, will you marry me
With your musket, fife and drum?
Oh how can I marry such a pretty little girl
When I've a wife and child at home?
