Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


Marianne


Marianne, oh, Marianne, oh, won't you marry me?
We can have a bamboo hut and brandy in the tea
Leave your fat old mama home; she never will say yes
If mama don't know now, she can guess
(spoken) MY, MY, YES

All day, all night, Marianne
Down by the seaside sifting sand
Even little children love Marianne
Down by the seaside sifting sand

When she walks along the shore, people pause to greet
White birds fly around her, little fish come to her feet
In her heart is love, but I'm the only mortal man
Who's allowed to kiss my Marianne
(spoken) DON'T RUSH ME

When we marry, we will have a time you never saw
I will be so happy, I will kiss my mother-in-law. (phooey!)
Children by the dozen in and out the bamboo hut
One for every palm tree and coconut
(spoken) HURRY UP NOW!
