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

Off to the haberdasher she did go, 
As fast as she could run, 
Bought him a hat, the best that there was,
And the soldier put it on.

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

Off to the tailor she did go, 
As fast as she could run, 
Bought him a coat, the best that there was,
And the soldier put it on.

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

Off to the cobbler she did go, 
As fast as she could run, 
Bought him a pair, the best that was there,
And the soldier put it on.

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

Off to the tailor she did go, 
As fast as she could run, 
Bought him a pair, the best that was there,
And the soldier put it on.

Soldier, soldier will you marry me,
With your musket, fife and drum?
Oh, how can I marry such a pretty girl as you, 
With a wife and three kids back home.
