All night, all day, Marianne
Down by the seaside, sifting sand
Even little children love Marianne
Down by the seaside, sifting sand

Marianne, oh, Marianne
Oh, won't you marry me?
We can have a bamboo hut
And brandy in the tea

Leave your fat old nanna home
She never will say yes
If mamma don't know now
She can guess, my, my, yes

All night, all day, Marianne
Down by the seaside, sifting sand
Even little children love Marianne
Down by the seaside, sifting sand

When she walks along the shore
People pause to greet
White birds fly around her
Little fish come to her feet

In her heart is love
But I'm the only mortal man
Who's allowed to kiss
My Marianne, don't rush me

All night, all day, Marianne
Down by the seaside, sifting sand
Even little children love Marianne
Down by the seaside, sifting sand

When we marry, we will have
A time you never saw
I will be so happy
I will kiss me mother-in-law

Children by the dozen
In and out the bamboo hut
One for every palm tree
And cok-y-nut, hurry up now

All night, all day, Marianne
Down by the seaside, sifting sand
Even little children love Marianne
Down by the seaside, sifting sand
