Thread Name: Lyr Req: Mademoiselle from Armentières
Subject: Mademoiselle from Armentieres
Still more verses:
Many and many a married man...
Wants to go back to France again.

The captain he's carrying the pack...
Hope to the Lord it breaks his back.

The little marine in love with his nurse...
He's taken her now for better or worse.

Mademoiselle all dressed in white...
Mademoiselle all dressed in white...
Mademoiselle all dressed in black
'Cause her little marine, he didn't come back.
Some verses aren't so happy, are they?
