Bonaparte's Retreat Lyrics
(Pee Wee King and Redd Stewart)

Met the man I love
In a town way down in Dixie
'Neath the stars above
He was the sweetest man you ever did see
When he held me in his arms
And told me of my many charms
He kissed me while the fiddles played
The Bonaparte's Retreat

All the world was bright
When he held me on that night
And I heard him say
"Please don't ever go away"
When he held me in his arms
And told me of my many charms
He kissed me while the fiddles played
The Bonaparte's Retreat

[Musical Interlude]

When he held me in his arms
And told me of my many charms
He kissed me while the fiddles played
The Bonaparte's Retreat

All the world was bright
When he held me on that night
And I heard him say
"Please don't you go away"

He's gone and I'll admit I knew
That I had met my Waterloo
I knew that he would say ado
With Bonaparte's Retreat

Good-bye little boy
Good-bye little joy
Good-bye little boy
So long little joy
