Female Drummer Lyrics

i was brought up in yorkshire and when i was six - teen
oh i ran away to london and a soldier i be - came.
with my fine cap and feather like-wise me rattling drum
they learned me to play upon the rub-a-dub-a-dum.

with my fine cap and feather like - wise me rattling
drum
they learned me to play upon the rub-a-dub-a-dum.
with me gentle waist so slend - er and me fingers long
and small
to play up - on the rub-a-dub the best of them all.

-instrumental-

and so many were the pranks that i saw among he french
and so bodly did i fight me boys although i'm but a
wench.
and in buttoning up me trousers so often have i smiled
to think i lay with a thousand men and a maiden all the
while.

with my fine cap and feather like - wise me rattling
drum
they learned me to play upon the rub-a-dub-a-dum.
with me gentle waist so slend - er and me fingers long
and small
to play up - on the rub-a-dub the best of them all.

-instrumental-

but they never found my secret out untill this very
hour
when they sent me off to london to keep sentry at the
tower.
and a young girl fell in love with me and she found
that i was a maid
she went up to my officer and my secret she betrayed.

with my fine cap and feather like - wise me rattling
drum
they learned me to play upon the rub-a-dub-a-dum.
with me gentle waist so slend - er and me fingers long
and small
to play up - on the rub-a-dub the best of them all.

-instrumental-

they unbuttoned my red tunic and he found that it was
true
it's a shame he says to lose a pretty drummer boy like
you.
so now i must return to me mum and dad at home
and along with me bold comrades it's no longer will i
roam.

with my fine cap and feather like - wise me rattling
drum
they learned me to play upon the rub-a-dub-a-dum.
with me gentle waist so slend - er and me fingers long
and small
to play up - on the rub-a-dub the best of them all.

--instrumental--
