GUEST,Joe Fineman WWI Trench songs (175* d) Lyr Add: MADEMOISELLE FROM ARMENTIERES 21 Mar 01


Since, astonishingly, I don't see MADEMOISELLE FROM ARMENTIERES in DigiTrad, here are some verses I have happened on over the years:

Mademoiselle from Armentieres
Hadn't been fucked for forty years.

A German officer crossed the Rhine.
He loved the women, he loved the wine.

O farmer, have you a daughter fair
To wash a soldier's underwear?

He took her upstairs and into bed,
And there he cracked her maidenhead.

The first three months and all was well,
But the second three months she began to swell.

The general got the Croix de Guerre --
The son of a bitch was never there.

-- A remarkably insipid song, considering its notoriety.
