The Corps of RCEME Regimental March

The Corps of RCEME Regimental March in Quick Time is a combination of "Lillibulero" and "Auprès de ma blonde."



Ho! brother Teague, dost hear the decree?
Lillibulero bullen a la, (repeated after each line)
Dat we shall have a new deputy?
Lillibulero bullen a la.

Lero, lero, lillibulero,
lillibulero, bullen a la
Lero, lero, lillibulero,
lillibulero, bullen a la

Ho! by my soul, it is de Talbot,
And he will cut all de English throat.

Though, by my soul, de English do preat,
De law's on dare side, and Creish knows what,

But if dispense do come from de Pope,
We'll hang Magna Charta and dem in a rope,

And de good Talbot is made a Lord,
And with brave lads is coming abroad,

Who all in France have taken a sware,
Dat dey will have no Protestant heir,

Ara! But why does he stay behind?
Ho' by my soul, 'tis a Protestant wind!

But see, de Tyrconnel is now come ashore,
And we shall have commissions galore,

And he dat will not go to mass
Shall be turn out, and look like an ass,

But now de hereticks all go down,
By Creish and St Patrick, de nation's our own,

Dare was an old prophecy found in a bog,
"Ireland shall be ruled by an ass and a dog."

And now dis prophecy is come to pass,
For Talbot's de dog, and James is de ass.

Auprès de ma blonde:

Au jardin de mon père
Les lauriers sont fleuris;

Tous les oiseaux du monde,
Vont y faire leurs nids:

Refrain: Auprès de ma blonde,
Qu'il fait bon (3)
Auprès de ma blonde,
Qu'il fait bon rêver.

La caille, la tourterelle,
Et la jolie perdrix,
Et la blanche colombe,
Qui chante jour et nuit.

Elle chante pour les filles,
Qui n'ont pas de mari;
Elle ne chante pas pour moi
Car j'en ai un joli.

Il n'est pas dans la danse,
Il est bien loin d'ici,
Il est dans la Hollande,
Les Hollandais l'ont pris.

Que donneriez-vous, Belle,
Pour revoir votre mari?
Je donnerais Versailles,
Paris et Saint-Denis.

Et la claire fontaine,
De mon jardin joli,
Et ma blanche colombe,
Pour avoir mon mari.

The Corps of RCEME Regimental Slow March is set to the tune of "The Flower of Scotland."
