Well, they sang about a beaches girl,
the one they call Fraulein,
I'm glad to say I met my girl
in the good old Maritimes;
Now, I realize she's not a queen,
she doesn't try to be,
She's just a simple housewife
and a lover to me.

Now, I never wandered many a mile
to see girls swingin' clear,
If I wanted beauty,
at home I could have stayed;
I went over there to fight a war
and not to look for love,
I found that in the Maritimes,
ask the Man above.

Now my little girl is waiting
with her Mommy by her side,
I know she misses Daddy,
her tears she's gonna hide;
She knows they'll have to kill me
if they want me to stay,
Nogies a girl in this whole world
could keep her daddy away.
