Sting - Pretty Young Soldier Lyrics




There are two young lovers, they're pledged to each other's hands,
They meet by the river, to talk of their marriage plans.
"I'm confessing," he said, "I've signed for a soldier,
I'm leaving tomorrow for some foreign land."

She watches the pretty young soldiers,
As they march themselves off to the war.
She wonders if she'll ever see him again,
Somehow she doubts it, but she has to be sure.

So she rode into town on the very next day,
And dressed herself up all in man's array.
With a sword and a musket she took the King's shilling,
And to fight in some foreign war,
She said, "Yes!," she'd be willing.

All you pretty young soldiers,
In those uniforms that you've never worn.
The Captain will come to inspect you all now,
"Let me down and you'll all wish you'd never been born."

The Captain astride of his horse's grey flanks,
Pulls the pretty young soldier from out of the ranks.
His gaze it is fixed and she's starting to shake,
He said, "Follow me soldier and listen to the offer that I'm willing to make."

"Come you pretty young soldier,
Come and be my right hand.
You're having this strange effect on my soul,
That I don't quite understand."

"Captain, oh Captain, I've a confession to make,
I love someone else and my heart it will break."
And as she released her brown hair from a band,
It tumbled all down her shoulders and into his hands.

"Oh you pretty young soldier,
Come and take my right hand.
You're having this strange effect on my soul,
And now I think, I understand."

    Josh Freese absolutely KILLING IT on the drums in this song.

  2. Harry Cox

    Musically it sounds quite similar to The Language of Birds. Still a strong though.

    Maria and Ivan into Anastasia Rasputin. They encompass the soldiers to stay alive, drunk at your show, to escape the memories of the Ipatiev basement death and to unite and purify the USSR. Many died in that slaughter and many went to hell in that war. In Heaven they ascend to become warriors with the gods and angels in spiritual combat. What are they fighting? The world. For their right to live. For their birth right. To have their stories and lives without others pairing, soiling them to down to steal it. God said, return to Him immediately. Do not be a fallen angel chastising those who pair, Nicholaitans. Or go to eternal hell with them. Which are you? Following the savior in your sacred heart or the evil wrath to hell. It is in the BIble. I had to go find my heart incessantly, discarding the ones not returning to God. Those who stole from the Royals.

    Ils se rencontrent au bord de la rivière pour parler de leurs projets de mariage. "Je confesse", at-il dit, "J'ai signé pour un soldat pour lequel je pars demain un pays étranger ". Elle regarde les jolies jeunes soldats Alors qu’elles se dirigent vers la guerre, elle se demande si elle ne le reverra jamais. Doutant de quelque façon, elle en doute, mais elle doit en être certaine. Elle s’est rendue en ville dès le lendemain et s’est habillée toute habillée avec une épée et un mousquet, elle prit le shilling du roi et se battit dans une guerre étrangère. Elle dit: "Oui!", elle voudrait bien. Vous tous, jeunes soldats, dans ces uniformes que vous n'avez jamais portés Le Capitaine va venir vous inspecter tous maintenant "Laissez-moi tomber et vous souhaiterez tous que vous ne soyez jamais né." Le capitaine à cheval sur les flancs gris de son cheval tire la jolie jeune soldat hors des rangs. Son regard est fixe et elle commence à trembler. Il a dit: "Suivez-moi soldat et écoutez l'offre que je suis disposé à faire." "Viens jeune et jolie soldat Viens et sois ma main droite Tu as cet étrange effet sur mon âme Que je ne comprends pas très bien." "Capitaine, oh Capitaine, j'ai une confession à faire aimer quelqu'un d'autre et mon cœur va se briser." Et alors qu’elle libérait ses cheveux bruns d’un groupe, elle tombait sur ses épaules et dans ses mains. "Oh, jeune et jolie soldat, viens prendre ma main droite. Tu as cet étrange effet sur mon âme. Et maintenant je pense, je comprends. "
