MIDI File

Otto: Maiden who brings the beer,
Won't you let me marry you, my dear?
Tell me that you will be mine at length!
If you can be married on the strength!
Elsa: I don't think I will wed,
I might like another man instead;
But I'll tell you what I will do,
Walk out with you —
Students: Walk out with you!
Elsa: If you won't, I'll choose from the rest —
Students: A big policeman is best!
Both: There's no doubt at all about
The fact that we are walking out!
Strolling and patrolling
Till the "lights out" drum is rolling
Down by-ways, off the highways,
Where there's no one near to see!
Chorus: Underneath a shady tree!
Both: Straying and delaying,
In the park where bands are playing,
Both linking arms and winking,
Oh! you must go walking out with me!
Chorus: Strolling and patrolling
Till the "lights out" drum is rolling
Down by-ways, off the highways,
Where there's no one near to see!
Both: Though perhaps there ought to be!
Chorus: Straying and delaying,
In the park where bands are playing,
Both linking arms and winking,
Oh! you must go walking out with me!
   
Otto: If any night or day
Duty calls your soldier love away,
I shall pine to see your face divine!
Couldn't we be there to help you pine?
Elsa: When I am left alone,
I shall long to welcome back my own!
None to comfort me I shall find —
None who is kind —
Soldiers: We do not mind!
Elsa: I shall cry for fancies and fears —
Soldiers: We'll come and help dry those tears!
Both: There's no doubt I/you need not pout
When it's not my/your Sunday out!
Strolling and patrolling
Till the "lights out" drum is rolling
Down by-ways, off the highways,
Where there's no one near to see!
Chorus: Two is company, not three!
Both: Straying and delaying,
In the park where bands are playing,
Both linking arms and winking,
Oh! you must go walking out with me!
Chorus: Strolling and patrolling
Till the "lights out" drum is rolling
Down by-ways, off the highways,
Where there's no one near to see!
Both: And you don't get back for tea!
Chorus: Straying and delaying,
In the park where bands are playing,
Both linking arms and winking,
Oh! you must go walking out with me!
