  • Chasemareene. (chaise-marine)

    While up and down from town to town
    We Jolly Soldiers rove
    Its you my Queen in Chase mareene
    Shall move like Queen of Love

    Your Love I prise beyond the Skies
    Beyond the spoil of war
    Would you agree to follow me
    In humble Baggage Carr

    For happiness tho in Distress
    In Soldiers wives are Seen
    And pride in coach has more reproach
    than Love in Chase mareene. . . .

    With fife and Drum we Soldiers Come
    With all the pomp of war
    Then dont think mean of a Chase mareene
    Its Loves Triumphant Carr.
