My love's in Germanie, send him home, send him home
My love's in Germanie, send him home
My love's in Germanie, fighting brave for royalty
He'll ne'er his Jeannie see, send him home, send him home
He'll ne'er his Jeannie see, send him home.

He's brave as brave can be, send him home, send him home
He's brave as brave can be, send him home
He's brave as brave can be, he'd rather fight than flee
His life is dear to me, send him home, send him home
His life is dear to me, send him home.

Our foes are ten to three, bonnie dame, bonnie dame
Our foes are ten to three, bonnie dame
Our foes are ten to three and he'd rather fall than flee
In the name of loyalty, bonnie dame, bonnie dame
In the name of loyalty, bonnie dame

Your love ne'er learned to flee, Willie's slain, Willie's slain
Your love ne'er learned to flee, Willie's slain,
Your love ne'er learned to flee, he lies slain in Germanie
Fightin brave for royalty, bonnie dame, bonnie dame
So brave for royalty, bonnie dame

He'll ne'er come over the sea, Willie's slain, Willie's slain
He'll ne'er come over the sea, Willie's slain
He'll ne'er come over the sea, to his love and own country
This worlds no more for me, Willie's slain, Willie's slain
This worlds no more for me, Willie's slain,

My love's in Germanie, send him home, send him home
My love's in Germanie, send him home
My love's in Germanie, fighting brave for royalty
He'll ne'er his Jeannie see, send him home, send him home
He'll ne'er his Jeannie see, send him home.
