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 donīt know now, she can guess.

My, oh, my, yes!

All day, all night, Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.

Even little children love Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.

 

When I walk along the shore people pause to greet
White birds fly around her, little fish come to her feet.

In my heart is love, and girl, the only mortal man
Iīm allowed to kiss, my Marianne.

Don't rush me!

All day, all night, Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.
Even little children love Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.

 

When we marry, you will see a time you never saw.
You will be so happy you will kiss your mother-in-law.

Phooey! Children by the dozen in and out the bamboo hut.

One for every palm tree and cocunut.

Hurry up now!

 

All day, all night, Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.
Even little children love Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.

 

Take it easy now!

All day, all night, Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.
Even little children love Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.

 

Very soft now!

All day, all night, Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.
Even little children love Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.

 

All together now!

All day, all night, Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.
Even little children love Marianne, down by the seaside siftin' sand.

Down by the seaside siftin' sand!

Down by the seaside siftin' sand!

 

Marianne!
