Ballad of a Soldier's Wife

From Prague came a pair of high-heeled shoes
With a kiss or two came the high-heeled shoes
From the ancient city of Prague

From Oslo, over the sound
From Oslo there came a collar of fur
How appeases her, little collar of fur
From Oslo, over the sound

From the wealth of Amsterdam
From Amsterdam he got her a hat
She looked sweet in that in a little dutch hat
From the wealth of Amsterdam

From Brussels he sent her laces so rare
To have and to wear oh those laces so rare
From Brussels in Belgium land

In Paris he got her a silken gown
T'was end in town oh silken gown

What was sent to the soldier's wife
From the south from Bucharest
From Bucharest he sent her his shirt
Embroidered and pert that Rumanian shirt
From the south of Bucharest

What was sent to the soldier's wife
From far-off Russian land
From Russia there came just a widow's veil
A death to be wed in her widow's veil
From the far-off Russian land
