Bonaparte's Retreat

Paul Anka

Met the girl I love
In a town 'way down in Dixie
'Neath the stars above
She was the sweetest girl I ever did see
So I took her in my arms, and
Told her of her many charms,
I kissed her while the fiddles played, the
Bonaparte's Re-treat.

All the world was bright
As I held her on that night
And I heard her say
"Please don't ever go away",
So I held her in my arms, and
Told her of her many charms, I
Kissed her while the fiddles played, the
Bonaparte's Re-treat.
