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
And love me now, for now is all the time there may be
And 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
Who knows where or who can say?

So Mary marry me, let's not wait
For those distant drums, might change our wedding day
And love me now, for now is all the time there may be
And if you love me Mary, Mary marry me
Yes, if you love me Mary, Mary marry me
