UNKNOWN Come Be A Soldier For Marlboro And Me Lyrics
Come be a Soldier for Marlboro and Me

A gay Grenadier came marching down through Rochester
Bound for the wars in the low countries
And he sang as he rode through the crowded streets of Rochester
`Who`ll be a soldier for Marlboro and me?
Who`ll be a soldier, who`ll be a soldier
Who`ll be a soldier for Marlboro and me
And he sang as he marched through the crowded streets of
Rochester
Who`ll be a soldier for Marlboro and me

`The King he is looking for soldiers for the continent
Strike one last blow to the enemy
And if you`d be a soldier all in your scarlet uniform
Take the King`s shilling for Marlboro and me`
(likewise)

`Not I,` said the mason, `Nor I,` said the tailor
And most of the crowd with them did agree
`To be rattled by the powder and the cannonball
Wages for soldiers for Marlboro and thee`

`Oh I,` said the young man, `I cannot stand the parish queue
No work or wages for the likes of me
Salvation or danger, it shall be my destiny
To seek employment with Marlboro and thee`

So forty new recruits came marching down through Rochester
Bound for the wars in the low countries
And they sang as they marched through the crowded streets of
Rochester
`Who`ll be a soldier for Marlboro and me?`
