Two German officers crossed thr Rhine, Parleevoo,
Two German officers crossed the Rhine, Parleevoo,
Two German officers crossed the Rhine
To kiss the women and drink the wine,
Hinky dinky Parlee-voo.

Oh farmer, have you a daughter fair, parlee-voo,
Oh farmer, have you a daughter fair, parlee-voo,
Oh farmer, have you a daughter fair,
Who can wash a soldier's underwear,
Hinky, dinky parlee-voo.

Mademoiselle from Armentierres, parlee-voo,
Mademoiselle from Armentierres, parlee-voo,
Mademoiselle from Armentierres,
She ain't even heard of underwear,
Hinky, dinky parlee-voo.

Mademoiselle from Armentierres, parlee-voo,
Mademoiselle from Armentierres, parlee-voo,
If you never wash your underwear,
You'll never get the Croix de Guerre,
Hinky, dinky parlee-voo.

Many and many a married man, parlee-voo,
Many and many a married man, parlee-voo,
Many and many a married man,
Wants to go back to France again,
Hinky, dinky parlee-voo.

The captain he's carryig the pack, parlee-voo,
The captain he's carryig the pack, parlee-voo,
The captain he's carryig the pack,
The captain he's carryig the pack,
Hinky, dinky parlee-voo.

The officers get all the steak, parlee-voo,
The officers get all the steak, parlee-voo,
The officers get all the steak,
And all we get is belly-ache,
Hinky, dinky parlee-voo.

The M. P.s say they won the war, parlee-voo,
The M. P.s say they won the war, parlee-voo,
The M. P.s say they won the war
Standing on gaurd at a cafe door,
Hinky, dinky parlee-voo.

The little marine in love with his nurse, parlee-voo,
The little marine in love with his nurse, parlee-voo,
The little marine in love with his nurse
He's taken her now for better or worse,
Hinky, dinky parlee-voo.

Mademoiselle is dressed in white, parlee-voo,
Mademoiselle is dressed in white, parlee-voo,
Mademoiselle is dressed in black
'Cause her little marine, He didn't come back,
Hinky, dinky parlee-voo.

You might forget the gas and shell, parlee-voo,
You might forget the gas and shell, parlee-voo,
You might forgest the gas and shell,
You'll never forget the mademoiselle,
Hinky, dinky parlee-voo.
