GUEST,M Lyr Req: The Young Recruit (Linley/Kücken) (17) RE: Lyr Req: The Young Recruit (Linley/Kücken) 28 Sep 13

I remember this song from my childhood. We sang it in school:

"Tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp.
Tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp.

See these ribbons gaily streaming.
I'm a soldier now, Jeanette.
I'm a soldier now, Jeanette.
And of battles I am dreaming.
And the honours I shall get.
With a sabre by my side,
And a helmet on my brow.
With a fiery steed to ride.
To the battle I must go.
Yes, I flatter thee, Jeanette,
Tis a life that well will suit,
Tis the life of a recruit,
Yes, tis the life of a recruit."

I don't remember the whole thing, but I definitely remember "Jeanette".
