Song Lyrics

I hear the sound of distant drums

Far away, far away

And if they call for me to come

Then I must go and you must stay

So Mary marry me, let`s not wait

Let`s share all the time we can before it`s too late

Love me now for now is all the time there may be

If you love me Mary, Mary marry me

I hear the sound of bugles blow

Far away, far away

And if they call, then I must go

Across the sea, so wild and grey.

So Mary marry me, let`s not wait

For the distant drums might change our wedding date

And love me now, for now is all the time there may be

If you love me Mary, Mary marry me
