With a kiss or two came the high heeled shoes
From the ancient city of prague.

How it pleases her, the little collar of fur
From oslo over the sound.

She looked sweet in that,
In her little dutch hat
From the wealth of amsterdam.

From brussels he sent her those laces so rare
To have and to wear,

From brussels in belgian land.

From the south from bucharest ?
From bucharest he sent her a shirt
Embroidered and pert, that rumanian shirt
From the south from bucharest.

What was sent to the soldier's wife
From the far-off russian land ?
From russia there came just a widow's veil
For her dead to bewail in her widow's veil
From the far-off russian land,
From the far-off russian land.
