lyrics

I was born in heather
On the blessed island
Land of pride and folly
And fallen on harder times
She was something special
Full of lunar glory
But she couldn’t love me
When she saw the Englishman

I fell in with scoundrels
And the Prussian Army
Just to seek a title
Though a rogue, I’m still a man
Now I beseech thee, fortune
It’s the curse upon a bloodless line, oh
Out in the battle they’re picking faces
Will you take the bounty when it’s time

Ah, what will it be now, Mrs. Lyndonne
Naughty or nice
I can serve equally well
Ah, run and tell your mother, Mrs. Lyndonne
A passionate vice
I can serve equally well

Mrs. Lyndonne tells me
That I’ve been forgotten
I say matter-of-factly
I’ve just come to collect my pay
She says that’s a smart reply young man
Shall I call my boy to see you out?
I say, if you please, I’m inclined to leave, but
Just as much, I’m inclined to stay

Ah, what will it be now, Mrs. Lyndonne
Naughty or nice
I can serve equally well
Ah, run and tell your mother, Mrs. Lyndonne
A passionate vice
I can serve equally well

May youth be forgiven
May this sojourn cometh
All of this listless folly
Finally brings it all to an end
Mrs. Lyndonne tells me
That all sons are bastards
I say parenthetically
Never love you like I did this day

Ah, what will it be now, Mrs. Lyndonne
Naughty or nice
I can serve equally well
Ah, run and tell your mother, Mrs. Lyndonne
A passionate vice
I can serve equally well
