Major: Throughout the world I've been and seen
Girls of each sort and kind,
But not one have I met as yet
With qualities so defined,
The Irish girl, the Scottish lass,
Delightful in their way,
And English girl forgive me please,
But I am bound to say--
Burmah, Burmah, Burmah girl,
You stand alone of all I have known,
With your smiles and roguish wiles,
How can a man be firm, ah!
Burmah, Burmah, Burmah girl,
Many I've seen, but you are the Queen,
In ev'ry part I've lost my heart,
But I've found it again in Burmah!
   
  Oh Burmah girl, you're quite divine,
Would we had met before,
On my half pay if you were mine
I could do so much more;
You do not ask for rows of pearls
To trim your frenzied frocks,
You only need a simple bead,
You've got no op'ra box.
Burmah, Burmah, Burmah girl,
You don't spend your days at Wooland's and Jay's,
You don't fret to play roulette,
Making a poor man squirm, ah!
Burmah, Burmah, Burmah girl,
No Carlton for you, no supper for two,
I've made up my mind, if a wife I find
I shall bring her to live in Burmah.
