intro-first few notes of "The Marseillaise">

 

If you turn me down once more, I'll join the French Foreign Legion

Betcha they would welcome me with open arms

 

First you love me, yes; then you love me, no

I don't know where I stand

Do we march together down the isle

Or do I march that desert sand?

 

If you think I won't find romance in the French Foreign Legion

Think about that uniform with all its charms

Just one more time are you gonna be mine or "au revoir, cherie"

It's the French Foreign Legion for me

 

Now if you think I won't find romance in the French Foreign Legion

Think about that uniform with all its charms

Just one more time are you gonna be mine or "au revoir, Sadie"

It's the French Foreign Legion for me
