  • 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.
