Subject: Lyr Add: HANS DUNDER HAS GONE FOR A SOLDIER
Here's an unusual version I found of Jonny's Gone For A Soldier:

Hans Dunder Has Gone For A Soldier
Composed & Sung by P. Bradel Jr.,
Better known as Brudder Bones, Comic Singer of Avenue B.

I'd traveled dis Countree there und here,
I vished I had a glass ov Lagerbier;
But when I heard de news dat to me did kum,
Oh! Hans Dunder vas gone for a Solger!

Chorus
Shoo, Shoo, Skin-a-marick-a-roo,
Hy ans dis spoodle-keedle-who de duse are U!
Nicks cum a rous von de Deitchman's Hous,
Oh! Hans Dunder vas gone fur a Solger!

Some say Hans Dunder has gone to France,
There for to buy a pair of tight legg'd pants,
And if he gets them there, it's only by chance:
Oh! Hans Dunder vas gone for a Solger!

I vished I vas on yonder Hill,
I set me down and eat my fill,
And every glass of Lager vould turn a mill:
Oh! Hans Dunder vas gone for a Solger!

I vished I vas on yonder Hill,
I set me down and eat my fill,
And every glass of Lager vould turn a mill:
Oh! Hans Dunder vas gone for a Solger!

I'll sell my coat and I'll sell my pants,
I'll buy a pretzell fur Hans Dunder Hansce,
Den ven he gets to Flambasterpool why dere he can dance:
Oh! Hans Dunder vas gone for a Solger!

I'll buy a pair of pants and I'll buy them red,
All over New-York I'll eat Mahogany bread;
Why den Hans Dunder dink dat I am dead:
Oh! when he comes home from de Solger.
