With a kiss or two came the high heeled shoes
From the ancient city of prague.

How it pleases her, the little collar of fur
From oslo over the sound.

In her little dutch hat
From the wealth of amsterdam.

From the south from bucharest ?
From bucharest he sent her a shirt
Embroidered and pert, that rumanian shirt
From the south from bucharest.

From the far-off russian land ?
From russia there came just a widow's veil
For her dead to bewail in her widow's veil
From the far-off russian land,
From the far-off russian land.
