Ballad Of The Soldier's Wife Lyrics

by Coldplay

What was sent to the soldier's wife
From the ancient city of Prague
From Prague came a pair of high heeled shoes
With a kiss or two came the high heeled shoes
From the ancient city of Prague.

What was sent to the soldier's wife
From Oslo of the sound
From Oslo they came
What a collar fur
How it pleases her
The little collar fur
From Oslo of the sound

What was sent to the soldier's wife
From the wealth of Amsterdam
From Amsterdam he got her a hat
She looked sweet in that
In her little Dutch hat
From the wealth of Amsterdam

What was sent to the soldier's wife
From Brussels in Belgium land
From Brussels he sent her laces so rare
To have and to wear
All those laces so rare
From Brussels in Belgium land

What was sent to the soldier's wife
From Paris city of light
In Paris he got her a silken gown
It was ended in town that silken gown
From Paris city of light

What was sent to the soldier's wife
From the South Bucharest
From Bucharest he sent her shirt
Embroidered and pert that Romanian shirt
From the South Bucharest

What was sent to the soldier's wife
From the far of Russian land
From Russia they came just a widow's veil
From a dead to bewailed in the widow's veil
Far of Russian land
