Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Mademoiselle from Armentières
I learned a sanitized version from my father, and later the "real" words in the U.S. Army in the early 60s. Most of the verses are posted here - One from me old man:

The Scotch brigade went over the top
They thought they heard a nickle drop

Chorus was Hinky - dinkey parlay - voo

Timeless folk music, by God!
