My sweetheart is a soldier.
As handsome as can be.
. But suddenly they sent him
away across the sea
So patiently I waited
until his leave was due
Then wrote and said "My darling,
I'll tell you what to do"
Come to the station,Jump from the train
March at the double, down lover's lane
Then in the glen where the roses en-twine
Lay down your arms (Lay down your arms)
Lay down your arms and surrender to mine
A soldier is a soldier
And when he's on parade
