Corporal Schnapps







Corporal Schnapps

Mine heart ish proken into little pits,
I tells you, friend, what for;
Mine schweetheart von coot patriotic kirl,
She trives me off mit der war.
I fights for her, der pattles of the flag.
I schtrikes to prove as I can;
Put now long time she nix remembers me,
And coes mit another man.

cho: Ah! mine fraulein!
You ish so ferry unkind;
You coes mit Hans to Zhermany to live,
And leaves poor Schnapps behind,
Leaves poor Schnapps behind.

I march all tay no matter if der schtorm
Pe worse ash Moses' flood;
I lays all night, my head upon a schtump
And "sinks to sleep" in der mud.
Der nightmare comes, I catch him ferry pad
I treams I schleeps wid de Ghost
I wakes next morning frozen in der cround
So schtiff as von schtone post.

They kives me hart-pred, tougher as a rock
It almost preaks mine zhaw;
I schplits him some-times mit an iron wedge
And cuts him up mit a saw.
Dey kives me peef, so ferry ferry salt
Like Sodom's wife, you know;
I surely tinks dey put him in der prine
Von hundred years ago.

Py'n py we takes von city in der South
We schtays there von whole year,
I kits me sour krout much as I can eat,
And plenty loccar pier.
I meets von lady repel in der schtreet
So handsome ef fer I see;
I makes to her von ferry callant pow
Put ah! she schpits on me.

"Hart times!" you say, "What for you folunteer?"
I tolt you, friends, what for:
Mine schweetheart, von coot patrioticc kirl,
She trove me off mit der war.
Alas! alas! Mibe pretty little von
Will schmile no more on me
Put schtill I fights der pattles of te flag
To set my countries free.
