W:Oh Polly, love, oh Polly, the rout has now begun,
W:and we must go a-marching to the beating of a drum.
W:Come dress yourself all in your best and come along with me,
W:and I'll take you to the war, me love, in high Germany.
W:
W:Oh Willy, love, oh Willy, come list what I do say.
W:My feet they are so tender, I cannot march away.
W:And besides, my dearest Willy, I am with child by thee.
W:Not fitted for the war, me love, in high Germany.
W:
W:I'll buy for you a horse, me love, and on it you shall ride.
W:And all my delight shall be a-riding by your side.
W:We'll stop at every alehouse and drink when we are dry.
W:We'll be true to one another, get married bye and bye.
W:
W:Oh, cursed be them cruel wars wherever they should rise,
W:and out of merry England press many a man likewise.
W:They pressed my true love from me, likewise my brothers three,
W:and sent them to the wars, me love, in high Germany
W:
W:My friends I do not value, my foes I do not fear.
W:Now my love has left me I wander far and near.
W:And when my baby it is born and smiling on my knee,
W:I'll think of lovely Willy in High Germany.
W:
W:Oh Polly, love, oh Polly, the rout has now begun
W:And we must go a-marching to the beating of a drum
W:Go dress yourself all in your best and come along with me
W:I'll take you to the war, me love, in high Germany
