chained_bear commented on the word 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.
