Title: Jeannette and Jeannot
Composer: Charles William Glover
Original text and translations
You are going far away, far away from poor Jeannette,
There is no one left to love me now, and you too may forget;
But my heart will be with you, wherever you may go;
Can you look me in the face and say the same, Jeannot?
When you wear the jacket red, and the beautiful cockade,
Oh, I fear you will forget all the promises you made!
With your gun upon your shoulder, and your bayonet by your side,
You'll be taking some proud lady and be making her your bride.
