Subject: Bawdy:A Soldier went to war...
I'm looking for the rest of the lyrics to a bawdy song I heard a long time ago. I can only remember the first line

"A sol, a sol, a soldier went to war, For cont, for cont, for Country and for King"!

It's bawdyness becomes apparent if you say it out loud.

It goes on from there (quite a bit) but I don't really remember any of it.

And here is the really helpful bit: the tune is stolen from something operatic, but I don't know the name of it. I could hum it for you, but that doesn't translate over the computer well.

Anybody have any ideas?
