lyrics

Well, dearest Polly, the war has now begun
And I must march along by the beating of the drum
Come dress yourself in all your best and sail away with me
I'll take you to the wars my love in higher Germanie

I'll buy my Polly a pony, and on it she will ride
I'll buy my Polly a pony to ride all by my side
We'll stop in every alehouse, we'll drink when we are dry
We'll be true to one each other and be married by-and-by

It's when I'll get to Plymouth town, a bed for you I'll have
It shall be covered in roses and roses shall be red
And when your baby it is born and smiling on your knee
You'll remember lovely William in higher Germanie

So, dearest Polly, the war has now begun
And I must march along by the beating of the drum
Come dress yourself in all your best and sail away with me
I'll take you to the wars my love in higher Germanie
